#218: You can achieve 10.5% Cash-On-Cash Returns with debt investing.

With Private Money Lending, you rent your money (not your property) to a borrower.

Their real estate is your collateral.

This way, you have greater passivity and stability than most equity real estate investing.

You participate on the DEBT side rather than the EQUITY side of real estate investing.

You have a fixed, predetermined rate of return.

You are in first lien position. This means that if your borrower defaults, you can get paid back first.

This is debt syndication. That simply means that a number of lenders make a loan on one construction project.

Act and learn more:

Most lending durations are 12-36 months. Typically, that’s how long you receive monthly cash flow payments, with your principal returned at the end.

Today’s guest, John Larson, Managing Partner at American Real Estate Investments, tells us about debt syndication in the Dallas-Fort Worth market.

Medical and office space are often developed, with 25-35 lenders on $2M-$4M properties.

If something goes wrong with a project, we discuss how you’re repaid.
