Protecting Your Money When The Market Drops With A Mortgage Fund

By now it’s no secret that I’m a big fan of mortgage funds, but I want to make sure that I’m crystal clear on why. You’ve heard me say that it’s better to own paper than to be a landlord because frankly, who wants to get those calls from disgruntled tenants?   Might as well be the bank and just earn a nice percentage on your money without the hassle, right? Of course, but that’s not what I want to discuss today.

Consider what happens to your stock market investments when the market drops. All of the sudden a massive amount of your money evaporates. If you owned a piece of property and the Real Estate market drops…well we all saw what could happen there. What if you owned a portion of a fund that held many properties in strong coastal areas that were managed by a very experienced team? You would have a diversified portfolio backed by something real and tangible…actual property.

OK, what happens if the Real Estate Market drops?

Mortgage Fund 6

 

  • The properties in coastal areas are the last to go down and the first to go up.

 

  • There is a lot of equity built into each property in the fund, so there’s room for the value to drop and borrowers have skin in the game.

 

  • If a borrower on a property stops paying, there are many other properties in the fund that are in good standing so your money is protected and the monthly income only goes down a small percentage.

 

  • If a borrower defaults, it’s up to the fund to go through the foreclosure process and sell off the property.

 

As you can see it’s not a bad deal at all and the real value of a mortgage fun is that you and your investment is protected from a downturn in the market.
