Self Directed IRA Investments & Consultation Services are Now Available at Summerlin Asset Management beginning February 20, 2015


Irvine, California (PRWEB) February 20, 2015

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 to sit on the other side of the desk and be a lender. But, private lending (http://summerlinam.com/) gives investors the ability to loan money secured by a real estate deed of trust, or mortgage. This promissory note or trust deed is a qualified investment through a self directed IRA pursuant to IRS tax laws.

Definition

The investment is made up of two parts: a promissory note and a deed of trust. The trust deed is a document that provides the collateral for the promissory note. It is filed with a county recorder’s office indicating that there is a loan against a property, creating a secured lien.

(Terminology differs – some states may use a mortgage instrument, but the filing of some sort of lien is typical when mortgage loans are provided.)

Benefits

Trust deed investing offers an unusual combination of high returns and consistent cash flow with a secured investment. Investors receive monthly interest payments on invested capital just as they would with a fixed income investment or money market fund.

Trust deeds also offer a vehicle for investing in real estate without the need to manage property. It’s an excellent way to diversify a portfolio. Plus, unlike publicly traded real estate related securities, such as REITs – trust deed investments are straightforward and easy to understand. Jim Stepanian the CEO of Summerlin Asset Management stated, “2015 is a perfect time to invest in 1st trust deed mortgage notes because the price of real estate has normalized, thus mitigating risk.”

Many investors do not realize that investing IRA money in private 1st Trust Deed Mortgage Notes (http://summerlinam.com/) is perfectly legitimate, and has been since 1974, when the IRA code was first written.

If the thought of investing in real estate if of interest, without the hassles of dealing with tenants and repairs, then perhaps investing retirement funds in trust deeds or mortgage notes may be something to consider. Using a self directed IRA to invest in trust deeds or mortgage notes can be an attractive option because it allows the ability to earn tax free, passive income in a secured lending arrangement stated James Stepanian the CEO of Summerlin Asset Management.

A trust deed or mortgage note is a financial agreement between a borrower and private investor in which the promissory note is backed by a deed of trust recorded on the property. The borrower executes a note payable to the IRA owner and promises to pay a certain interest rate on the loaned money, plus repay the principal amount within a specific time frame. The monthly income from these payments may generate a higher-yielding return to your IRA in the form of monthly income. In the event the borrower defaults on their loan obligations, the IRA receives claim to the property once the property goes through foreclosure. But, while all investments involve risk, trust deeds or mortgage notes may offer an IRA owner the opportunity to recoup a portion or all of their original investment through the sale of the property.

IRA funds are typically invested in public stocks, bonds, mutual funds and money markets, but can also be invested in Real Estate, Trust Deeds, Mortgages, Promissory Notes and Private Stock/Bonds. It can be very lucrative to purchase your best and safest investments with IRA funds to avoid income and capital gains taxes. This works especially well with a large amount of money in an IRA account(s).

HVS Capital Corp and iFunding form Strategic Alliance for Crowdfunding Hospitality Real Estate Investments


New York, NY (PRWEB) January 26, 2015

HVS Capital Corp, the real estate industry leader for hospitality investment banking solutions, and iFunding, the crowdfunding platform that makes real estate investing simple, announce a strategic alliance to expand financing for hospitality real estate projects. HVS Capital Corp (“HVSCC”) will use iFunding’s crowdfunding platform to expand the investor base for hospitality real estate, while iFunding will rely on HVSCC exclusively to underwrite its crowdfunded hotel, resort and timeshare deals.

Hospitality Real Estate Investing and Crowdfunding are Growing

Real estate crowdfunding is evolving from typically financing smaller investments, often single-family and multi-family projects and rentals, to also providing individual investors and family offices greater access to more sophisticated commercial real estate investments. Meanwhile, economic growth in the United States has driven renewed hospitality sector profitability and new hotel developments, particularly in the mid-scale to upper-scale segments. The HVSCC / iFunding relationship meets growing demand to combine the profitability and sophistication of hospitality real estate with the progressive financing of crowdfunding.

Hospitality real estate developers and operators with an interest in HVSCC / iFunding’s joint crowdfunding financing and underwriting approach are invited to contact the companies to propose investments. The iFunding team can be reached via 844-367-4386 ext.2 or partners(at)ifunding(dot)co. The HVSCC team can be reached via 303-512-1226 or wsipple(at)hvs(dot)com.

William Sipple of HVS Capital Corp joins iFunding’s Advisory Board

In addition to the collaboration on hospitality real estate crowdfunding, iFunding welcomes William Sipple, Executive Managing Director of HVSCC, to iFunding’s advisory board. Bill Sipple contributes over 30 years experience in hotel development, finance, valuation and operations to the collaboration and board. He has worked for, or advised, top hospitality brands including Regent International, Carlson Hotels (including Radisson & Park Plaza) and Starwood Hotels & Resorts.

Mr. Sipple’s team at HVSCC serves institutional and high net-worth investors, developers and management/ownership companies, with services including:

Investment sales and acquisitions of hotel and mixed-use properties;
Capital markets advisory services for securing project debt and equity; and
Deal structuring, including financial analysis, due diligence, and deal closing.

Mr. Sipple stated, “In an effort to utilize today’s cutting edge technologies, HVS Capital is thrilled to align ourselves with this new and reliable source of equity and debt capital, in what we call the democratization of real estate capital.” He added, “Crowdfunding can be an excellent source of funding, well-suited to fill a recognized void in smaller- to medium-sized hotel transactions. It is cost-effective and can be used for gap equity, mezzanine financing and bridge loans in particular.”

CEO of iFunding, William Skelley, noted: “We are finding interest from property developers and real estate investors alike in the hospitality sector. Our investors have inquired about opportunities in boutique hotel developments, marquee hotels and resorts, and active living communities. Crowdfunding investors like the option of being able to invest in hospitality properties, but expect the depth of underwriting and advisory capabilities that HVS Capital Corp brings to every deal. That’s why I’m confident that our exclusive reliance on HVSCC for hospitality underwriting will drive more crowdfunding interest, well-positioned properties, and quality investment outcomes.”
