Arixa Releases FAQ About Investing In Real Estate Loans

Have you ever wanted to know how professional investors approach investing in real estate loans as opposed to buying real estate itself? By providing loans that banks aren't able to make, investors are earning attractive yields with a healthy margin of safety. However, this strategy requires real expertise and has both disadvantages as well as advantages over tradition real estate investing, such as buying and operating apartment buildings.


At Arixa Capital Advisors, we are doing our best to de-mystify this type of investment. A first step is our comprehensive Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) about investing in real estate loans (also known as "bridge lending" or "trust deed investing"). To access our FAQ, please click here. You can also download an interactive PDF of the FAQ by clicking here. If you have questions, comments or suggestions for additional topics that we should cover, please let us know. We look forward to hearing from you.
