New White Paper Available: The Great Housing Workout

The Great Housing Workout White Paper

Arixa Capital has released a new white paper focused on the U.S. housing market and single family homes as an asset class for investors to consider. The white paper is based on Arixa's concrete experience investing in this area in recent years, working with local operators who buy properties in a specific geographic area, renovate them, and either lease the homes or resell them.

The white paper explains various ways that investors can gain exposure to this asset class, which Warren Buffett recently endorsed as underpriced and attractive. The author explains the advantages and disadvantages of various investment strategies for both active and passive investors.

The white paper also explains that the activity of thousands of local operators is already helping to work through the backlog of foreclosed homes. Attracted by appealing profits, local operators will help the housing market to heal over the next several years. Policies that aim to solve the problem on a mass scale are neither needed nor advisable.

Trust Deed Investment Paths and Outcomes

This podcast gets to the heart of what outcomes the trust deed investor must be prepared for. There are two main outcomes: (1) get paid back, on time, with interest; and (2) borrower fails to perform, in which case there is a default and lender pursues a foreclosure to protect lender's interests. Within this second outcome, there are two sub-paths: (2a) foreclosure auction takes place, and the lender is outbid by another investor, in which case the lender gets paid back, with interest and reimbursement of attorney's fees; or (2b) lender is the highest bidder at the foreclosure sale in which case lender owns the property after the foreclosure sale. Lender can then hire a broker to sell the property. If the loan wasn't excessively large relative to the value of the property, lender should ultimately get his or her money back, with an attractive return, to compensate for the hassle and work involved in foreclosing and having to hire a broker and sell the property.

Please watch our blog as we will be posting one new podcast roughly every week. There will be about 30 podcasts total in this series. If you are interested in learning more about what we do, give us a call at 310-905-3050.
