Trust deed investment can provide substantial returns with minimal risks. A deed of trust transfers property to someone to be held in trust for another. A trustee holds the property until the dept has been paid. The person who is appointed the trustee operates as an independent entity to hold the legal title to a property on the lender’s behalf until the borrower has completely paid off the loan, but if a default were to occur, the lender can take ownership of the property.
Trust deed is similar to traditional mortgages loans. The main difference is mortgages involves two parties the lender and borrower, trust deeds involves three, a borrower, lender, and trustee. The trustee is a third party who holds legal title to the property in question on behalf of the lender until the loan is paid full.
Investors can invest in trust deeds either by directly making loan or by purchasing an existing promissory note. A promissory note is a negotiable instrument, wherein one party (the maker or issuer) makes an unconditional promise in writing to pay a determinate sum of money to the other (the payee), either at a fixed or determinable future time or on demand of the payee, under specific terms.

Investors should also decide whether they want to invest in a first trust deed. First trust deeds take precedence over successive claims and are recorded first. Second trust deeds have a greater risk attached to them because the first trust deed holder’s claim must be settled first. If there isn’t enough money to satisfy both debts, it’s the second trust deed holder who will lose money. An investor can even purchase one hundred percent of a single trust deed by making whole trust deed investments, entitling an investor to full ownership of the promissory note.
