Earn 10% – 13% through trust deed investments!
California Trust Deed investments offer an attractive alternative to traditional investment options. They yield a higher rate of return, typically between 10% to 13% annual rate. The risk is relatively low because investments are secured by tangible real property with verified equity. Trust deeds also have the added incentive of producing a regular, stable stream of income through fixed payouts.

TRUST DEED INVESTING INFORMATION
- Potential borrowers inquire about equity loans against their property.
- All client and property information is carefully screened and processed by Karpe Real Estate Center, with property valuations determined by a third party licensed appraiser.
- There are numerous scenarios and reasons for our borrowers to need an equity loan. We do our due diligence in advance that borrowers are able to repay the loan per the applicable terms. Any available cross-collateralization of other real estate is presented and considered, as are liquid and hard assets which may be pledged as collateral for the loan.
- If the loan meets our lending guidelines, we then contact investors to present the details of the loan transaction for their immediate consideration.

Beneficial interest in the note and deed of trust are sold to private lenders at a fixed rate and term.

If you have a current custodian for your self-directed IRA, first check to see if they will accommodate trust deed purchases. If not, contact us for information on custodians that will allow you to place your IRA funds in a trust deed investment. In addition to IRA’s, you can also transfer existing pension plans to a custodian.
Once your funds are transferred, notify us how much you would like to invest in trust deeds. We will then forward loans fitting your individual criteria to you to decide whether or not you would like to invest. Once you have decided on an acceptable trust deed, we will send you the appropriate documents for signature, and will work with your custodian to transfer or rollover the funds.
A self-directed IRA is no different from any other IRA. It indicates that you the client choose your IRA investments. The rules governing IRA investments types are exclusive – not inclusive. Therefore you can invest your IRA funds in a virtually unlimited set of investments, except for those specifically excluded by law.
This is not a new investment strategy. You have been able to buy real estate and trust deeds within your IRA since the inception of IRA’s over 30 years ago.
