Three Ways To Invest

Fractional Loans

Fractional Loans are where you invest in a portion of that loan, say 20% or 50%.  This allows you to diversify your investment among multiple loans.

Qualified California Residents Only

Managed Funds

For Accredited Investors, Managed Funds are a more passive yet highly effective way to get your investment working quickly.

Accredited Investors Only

Whole Loans

Whole loans are where you invest in the entire loan. You are the sole lender and retain 100% control over that loan.  Our loan sizes will typically range from $150,000 to $3,000,000.

How to Invest

1. Register

Register to become a PrivateMoneyLoans.com Investor. It only takes a few minutes! Once you Register we will review your information and process your approval. You will receive an email upon approval, usually within a few hours, and certainly by the next business day.

2. Preview

Preview the Trust Deed investments available through our online marketplace (SEE “Offerings”) and select opportunities based on the criteria that’s important to you.

3. Select

You may select from:

  • Newly originated loans in which you fund directly into escrow and then close.
  • Recently originated loans that have funded, closed escrow and are available for purchase.
  • Seasoned loans with a payment history.

4. Pledge

Pledge the dollar amount that you are comfortable with for the term of the loan (all or some fraction of the loan amount). You can increase, decrease or release your pledge at any time prior to funding

5. Review

Transparency is one of the hallmark features of PrivateMoneyLoans.com. Once you have pledged your investment we will provide secure access to the loan file so you can conduct your own due diligence review. You are encouraged to review the loan file with your trusted advisor. PrivateMoneyLoans.com enables you to communicate directly with the loan Sponsor through the platform so that you can get quick answers to any questions or concerns that you may have.

6. Funding

When a loan is fully pledged and thus ready to close, the investment status will change to “Funding Now” at which point all pledges will be final. All pledged investors will be notified, lender documents will be provided for review and approval, along with wire instructions for wiring funds into escrow.

7. Closing

When all pledged funds are received in escrow, along with signed lender and borrower documents (promissory note, deed of trust) we are ready to close. At closing the deed of trust is recorded against the title of the borrower’s property, in the name of investor(s). Your investment is secured by the recorded deed of trust. After recording the funds are released from escrow to the borrower. For loans that have already closed escrow and those that are seasoned all pledged funds are deposited into an assignment escrow. The loan is then assigned to the new owner(s) and recorded. After recording the funds are released from the assignment escrow to the seller(s) of the loan.

8. Distributions

Once escrow has closed, the loan will be boarded with our servicer who will collect monthly payments from the borrower, and process monthly distributions to the Investors. The interest income on the loans you have invested in are automatically deposited each month into your bank account. Loan servicing is managed by Pacific Private Money, Inc., with over $100 Million representing approximately 250 loans in servicing and a 10-year operating history.

9. Reinvest

When the borrower is ready to pay off their loan, either at maturity or earlier, a payoff notice will be provided to you. At payoff, a final interest payment will be made to you along with your remaining principal balance. Your capital is then ready to reinvest.
