Strategy: Low Risk, High Return

Most investors have, at some time in their lives, borrowed money to complete a real estate transaction. Generally speaking, they have not had the opportunity sit on the other side of the desk and be a lender. But, Safeguard’s private lending option gives investors the ability to loan money secured by a real estate deed of trust, or mortgage, on a single-family rental property.

All transactions are executed through a title and escrow company, or closing attorney, and subject to real estate licensing and laws of the state in which they are originated. Safeguard does not handle the funds. Funds are wired from your bank account direct to an escrow or trust account for a specific transaction.

The trust deed or mortgage instrument provides the collateral for the promissory note. Upon closing, it is filed with a county recorder’s office indicating that there is a loan against a property, creating a secured 1st lien position.
