Trust Deed Investors in California

On the other hand, other places such as Solano County, the Central Valley, and Riverside/San Bernardino areas will remain less expensive thanks to solid job growth in warehousing, transportation, logistics, and manufacturing. But, on the whole, CAR worries about how you’ll be able to afford investing.


What Are Trust Deed Investors?

Trust deed investors are those who ignore credit rating and credit worthiness and transact property loans in terms of assets. In other words, the amount the investor lends is primarily based on the value of the subject property. Put another way, the investor is mostly concerned with the amount of equity that you have invested (or may invest) in the property that will be used as collateral. He or she is less concerned with your credit rating – which doesn’t mean that he may ignore it altogether. But there are enough investors who will overlook issues on your record such as a foreclosure or short sale as long as you have the capital to pay the interest on the loan.

The trust deed transaction also moves faster than standard procedures do in bank or credit union.  Lender and borrower file a document with a county recorder’s office – the document is called a deed of trust – where details of the lien are described. The borrower then signs a promissory note where he promises to repay the specified loan on the specified day.

The investor must also consider the borrower’s plan for the property. The borrower must present a reasonable plan that shows how he or she intends to ultimately pay off the loan. Usually this means improving the property and selling it or obtaining long-term financing later on.

What Are The Benefits Of Trust Deed Investing?

Trust deed investing offers a combination of high returns and monthly cash flow with a secured investment. Investors receive monthly interest payments on their invested capital as they would with a fixed income investment or money market fund, but the yields are typically higher.

Such deeds are also a vehicle for investing in real estate without the need to manage property. They’re an excellent way to diversify a portfolio. Plus, unlike publicly traded real estate related securities such as CMOs, MBSs, REITs, and so forth, trust deed investments are simple and easy to understand.

What Are The Disadvantages Of Trust Deed Investing?

For the lender, such investing comes equipped with four main sources of risk. These are: property devaluation, borrower fails to repay, legal action, and, in the case of Second Position deeds, loss in the event of a foreclosure and/or sale of the senior lien. Trust deed investors, usually, join an agency that helps them manage these risks.

The Short Of It Is This…

Trust deed investors are an excellent alternative for people who may have let down by the banks. Borrowers may like them for various reasons that include speed, service and flexibility. In a Californian 2016 market that may turn out to be crimped, such investors can get you the finance that you may be unable to land elsewhere.

Own a Property in Thailand

I search for properties where I can invest to get the maximum return for my investment and I have found that Thailand is becoming more popular these days and it offers a lot of good properties that you can invest in. Many of the investment properties seem very promising.

I have researched some good reviews and feedback of the top development companies in Pattaya Thailand. Upon seeing the beauty and wonder of Pattaya – I found out why a lot of investors choose to invest here. The place is very attractive. There are a lot of things to discover in Thailand and more particularly in Pattaya.

Aside from its wonders and beautiful tourist spots, Thailand is also home to international schools and a lot of tourists enroll every year. Thailand has also one of the world’s highest trade industries which make it very viable for business.

Thailand has also one of the fastest and easiest ways to own property. All you need is your passport. The way I see it, the government of Thailand has given so much importance to its tourism industry that is why its economy is booming. The rise of its tourism industry is making way for business and trade.

Upon reading all the articles, blogs and reviews about Thailand, I have decided to visit it one of these days. I know it will be a good choice of investment.

Here’s how:

1.) The first step of course is to know your purpose of investment. Without determining this you will be lost along the way and might regret the decision you have made. Think deeply about your plan investment. There is no need to rush. It is good to have a good plan before jumping into something.

2.) Answer the question “Why?” This is very important. Why are you investing? You should know the reason behind your investment. Is it for lifestyle or business? With this, you will know what property to acquire.

3.) In the third step, you probably have a well thought of plan and a decision on what property to acquire. With this, you can now decide on the specifics. Take for example- if you want a business for rents then probably you can get a condo unit. Scroll on some of the condo units and pick your choice. The ones with the best and largest units have higher appreciation value.

4.) The fourth step is of course to discuss things with the owner for some requirements. The first thing you will need is your passport. This will be your first ticket to owning a property in Thailand. You will also have to discuss the payment method. When discussing this part, you have to consider your monthly income. Lastly, you will need a down payment. Most investments in Thailand start at 20% but is negotiable. It will depend on your agreement.

5.) The last step is to finalize and finish all that are needed for the acquisition of your property.

I never thought that owning a property in Thailand is this simple and fast. I hope a lot of bachelors and businessmen will be encouraged to invest in Thailand. Surely it will be an investment you will not regret.

Find the Property Lines for Your Land

Property lines, or boundary lines, are the defined points where one owner’s land ends and the neighboring property begins. A property owner uses boundary lines to determine where they can legally place items such as fences, driveways, outbuildings like pole barns or anything else. Erecting a structure on or partially on another person’s land can lead to lawsuits and unpleasant situations with neighbors.

1. Check your deed. The deed contains the legal description of your property, which is basically the property’s measurements and boundaries in words. For most people, the property description can be difficult to interpret, so you may not find it helpful. However, sometimes, the legal description uses landmarks and measurements that you can interpret. If that’s the case, measure from the landmarks in the description to the property lines. Mark each corner with a stake or other marker. Measure from each stake to the next all the way around your property to ensure the measured lines match the deed. Physically measuring the boundaries will allow you to visually determine where the lines are and avoid encroaching on your neighbor’s land. Just be warned: An old description may rely on the location of a tree that no longer exists or a creek that has gone dry.

2. Check the official website for the assessor’s office in your municipality. Some assessors have mapping tools available online for all of the real estate in the area. You can use the maps to find the boundary lines for your property and to determine where nearby landmarks are located, such as the east line of your street. You can use these landmarks as fixed points to measure from. Using a tape measure or measuring wheel, measure the distance from each of the landmark points to your property line as shown on the maps.

3. If you don’t have a copy, and there’s nothing available online, visit the county recorder’s office or the assessor’s office. When you bought your property, you may have received a plat map, showing property lines and measurements. If it wasn’t included with your paperwork, check with your local clerk’s or surveyor’s office. Ask if there are any maps available for public viewing that include your neighborhood and street. Some of these maps may be available online, while others will be hard copies or microfiche copies. Even maps of neighboring properties can be valuable if they show shared property lines.

4. Last but not least, hire a surveyor. The most surefire way to determine legal property lines is by hiring a professional. The surveyor can measure and map the property and will generally also mark the corners of the property with stakes. It’s always a good recommendation to be present when the surveyor comes to measure your property, so they can review the property lines with you. The cost of a survey will vary depending on your location, lot size, and other variables. The surveyor needs to be licensed with your state and should carry professional liability insurance, which can cover you if the surveyor makes a mistake in the survey.

Profit From Your Rental Properties

The reason which at first instance, seems to be responsible for this myth be no tension of establishing a personal office or factory, no tension of appointing huge staff for getting different tasks accomplished on time, no concern about the sinking of funds on etc. In simple words it can be said that lots of people think that earning rent from the property given on rent doesn’t require any huge investment.

But, is it really so as it seems to be or earning profits from rental properties is complex and requires the proper involvement of the person investing his funds in the property for giving on rent. This in-fact is the matter of debate which is mainly because of the discussions which they have from their known ones who have given their property on rent. Although, this can be true, but that is possible in the case if you have rented the portion of your house to only one or two tenants.

Moreover, if you some properties for rent located in another corner of your city or is some other city then looking after those properties could be quite daunting for you. Because looking after all the properties at the same time won’t be possible for you, anyhow, even if you succeed in managing it, you might have to struggle with your tenants for rent and other issues. Anyhow, even if someone assumes that investing in property is one of the easiest methods of earning, then they do not know that it is like hitting the bullseye. So, how a novice can get rid of various issues arising from Rental Properties Adelaide for earning expected profits from his property.

Why you should hire the services of rental property experts:

As referred above that most of the people consider earning money from rental properties as an easy task, agreed that it is. But, do you know how to search for the prospective tenants, how to interview the tenants and get their documents verified, what are the legal documents required to be prepared before giving any property on rent or what to do in case if your tenant refuses to pay rent on time or tries to exhibit his ownership on your property? All these questions are just illustrations of the problems which as a newbie, you might face while investing your funds in property, there might be various other issues about which you might have even not imagined could disturb you once you have given your property on the rent.

Find Cheap Land

While it is true that vacant land is less expensive than houses, that is a blessing when it comes to your startup capital. It is much cheaper to buy vacant land than it is to buy houses, apartments, or commercial buildings.

And as any landlord can attest, owning rental property comes with a myriad of headaches, from clogged toilets to evicting deadbeat tenants. Raw land has the advantage of being maintenance free while increasing in value over time. And if you can find cheap land, then there is almost no reason to not get involved with vacant land.

One thing to keep in mind with land is that like all types of real estate, location is everything. One tenth of an acre in Manhattan could cost millions of dollars, but travel a few counties away from the cities and you can get many acres often for a few thousand dollars. The sweet spot is when you can find an area that’s close enough to a metropolitan area to be desirable, yet far enough that you can find a great deal.

The best types of sellers for cheap land are the ones who have a reasonable expectation of what their land is worth. Oftentimes, people have owned their land for decades and expect to be paid market value or higher just because they’ve paid taxes on the property for all these years. These are not the sellers you want to do business with.

Unfortunately, many of the properties listed on the Realtor’s MLS fit this description. They think their property is worth X amount because so-and-so down the street sold it for a big amount back in 2007. But Mr. Seller doesn’t mention that his neighbor’s property is twice as big, has several potential building sites, and a beautiful stream running through it! Yes, sellers tend to forget these details and have expectations out of touch with reality.

If you are looking for the best land deals, it is in your interest to seek out a land expert. A professional real estate investor who focuses on vacant land often gets great deals by buying properties in bulk, and then passes the savings on to you in order to unload the property quickly. These deals are often from sellers who inherited the property, or are very behind on property taxes, or just don’t want the land for whatever reason.

Get Financing for Land and Lots

Since this is something the average person only does once in a lifetime you may not be sure as to how to start and where to begin when it comes to financing for land or home lots for building. When it comes to finding financing for residential land it is quite different in comparison to simply applying for a mortgage on an already built home. Today the interest rates are actually quite high with a very low loan to value ratio.

Research is really the number one key when it comes to finding great rates for land and lot mortgages. One of the best rates in the country rate now is lending to 38 of the states with 80% loan to value ratio and 3% interest rate; this is the type of find you have to jump on when they come along. These figures are certainly not average. Today the average loan to value ratio is closer to 60% with interest rates in the range of 6-7%. This is a significant jump from the numbers posted above and in some cases these higher percentages can make or break your dreams of buying your own lot and building your own home.

In order to be approved for one of these hard to get mortgages you will have to have several requirements met. First, you must have a satisfactory income to debt ratio of no more than 45%, the ability to come up with the down payment, 20% if you can find a good lender with good rates but this can be up to 40% in some cases and a credit score in the 700s to qualify without any problems. Also as a first time buyer it is important to note the other costs associated with your new purchase:

• Closing costs of about 1-2% of the entire loan amount
• Appraisal fees ($400-$600)
• Title fees

Many first time buyers are not aware of these additional costs and it can really harm your bank account when you do not budget accordingly.

Real estate professionals believe there is no better time than the present to be purchasing vacant land around the country. This aspect of the real estate market was hurt just as badly as residential homes and therefore there are many people around the country trying to unload their land lots to prospective buyers like yourself. In the past it was a profitable market to take vacant land and flip it but after the real estate market crash this business has become obsolete. Now is the time for home builders to find the lots of their dreams and begin building.

Start researching online and offline today to find the best lending deals serving your state or province and community in order to make financing a simple and profitable process. There are many qualified professionals to speak to.


Buy Land For Farming

Buying land doesn’t have to be tricky if you have the right people helping you every step of the way. You will need a team of professionals you can call like agents, brokers and maybe even a lawyer. Buying a farm is quite different then buying a residential lot. This may seem obvious but have you considered what it means to purchase bulk acreage. Have you surveyed this acreage and made sure that it will meet all your requirements?

First, have all your financial ducks in a row, so to speak before you even begin looking to buy land. You will be ready to buy as soon as you find what you’re looking for, if your finacing has already been secured.

Secondly, you should choose an agent who has experience with selling farm land since there are many specifics involved in terms of paperwork and land requirements that everyone will need to be on the same page about. The USDA’s website has all the documentation for many different types of land purchases.

Third, you should carefully examine the property, do not really on pictures or hearsay. make sure yourself, that everything you want is there. Do you plan on planting crops? Do you know for sure your soil is good and fertile enough for planting? Does it have proper drainage and irrigation?. Is there a place to put your equipment? Such as, a large barn, shed or other lot?

Lastly, have you done your research on insurance? You will need to know your options here as well as find someone you trust to help you cover all your bases. You need to insure your crops, even if it seems expensive, it will still be the best decision you made in case of a natural disaster which wipes out your harvest such as a tornado or a flood. In case of disaster, you shouldn’t rely on FEMA to save you. You should have a good insurance plan to cover your losses.

Spending time on a farm closer to nature and having an intimate knowledge of growing and caring for your food supply can be rewarding as a hobby or financially rewarding if you plan to take your fruits, vegetables and or meats to market. Whichever type of farm you wish to buy whether it be hobby, or livelihood. Check into rates on your loans for farm and carefully choose a real estate agent who knows the ins and outs of purchasing farmland.


Learn How to Sell Land Online Fast

These differences are important to take into consideration if you find yourself needing to sell land, because the strategies for selling the two types of properties are quite different, particularly if you need to know how to sell land fast.

Selling a house is not the same as selling land

Let’s think about some of the major differences between the two:

  • Fewer people are looking to buy land than houses Land just isn’t as popular as houses are. That’s pretty obvious, since most real estate transactions are made by people looking for a place to live, not an investment or a place to build. This is important to keep in mind, because simply putting up a sign or running a Craigslist ad won’t cut it: it may never be seen by someone looking for what you have to offer!


  • How do you “show” land? Everyone knows what it means to show a house, and it’s the basic thing you do at the beginning of the selling process. But what about for land? Showing land is a lot less likely to cause a potential buyer to form an emotional connection with the property than if the property was a house, simply because it’s easier to imagine oneself living at the new place if the house actually exists!


  • Harder to motivate agents The simple fact is that any given piece of land would almost always be worth more if it had a house sitting on it. So, real estate agents will gain a smaller commission from selling your land than from selling properties nearby that have improvements. Now of course, most agents try to do their very best for their clients, but it would be difficult for anyone to completely fight off the disincentive of a smaller paycheck.

The internet is your best friend

It’s no secret that a ton of real estate business is done online, but how should you use this knowledge to quickly sell your land? Well, as we discussed earlier, the number of people actively looking to buy land is relatively small, so you need to get your property out to a wide audience. This is easy to do online, with free sites like Zillow and FSBO being great places to submit your property. However, there are also special investor portals online that let you put your property right in front of the eyes of people who actually buy and sell land for a living! These folks look at properties all the time and make their decisions about whether or not to buy based on specific criteria, so it’s best to provide them with as much information about your property as possible. Oftentimes you can get an investor to make you an offer site unseen. Now that’s how to sell land!

Where do you find these investor portals? You can search Google for terms like “sell land fast” and find plenty of land investors ready to take a look. Look for ones who offer to cover closing fees and pay you cash.

I hope this has been informative, and best of luck selling your property!
