Deeded Interests – Not Platform Notes

At you are investing in a Deeded Interest, not a Platform Note.

Your Trust Deed investment is secured by a Deed of Trust recorded on the property for which the loan is made. You or your investment entity are named on the Deed of Trust as owning whatever fractional interest you purchase, or the whole loan if you purchase 100%.

Most crowdfunding sites offer what are known as “Platform Notes” which are significantly different as they are NOT secured by a recorded Deed of Trust. With a Platform Note, your only security is the good faith and credit of the company or crowdfunding site offering the investment.

As a Trust Deed investor with, you enjoy a far more secure investment position than with a Platform Note.
