Who should be investing in trust deeds?

Any savvy investor looking to diversify their investment portfolio can benefit from investing in trust deeds.  Ideally, the investor should have a good understanding of real estate and lending or rely on a trusted advisor to guide them.  Trust deed investments are not guaranteed   like a bank Certificate of Deposit backed by FDIC insurance. Therefore the buyer of a Trust Deed needs to do their own due diligence when purchasing a Trust Deed. Of primary importance is the current value of the property secured by the Trust Deed. Each loan package will have an appraisal giving the value for the subject property. Buyers should review the appraisal to be sure they agree with the value and take steps to verify its accuracy.
