There are risks associated with Trust Deed Investments that Investors should be aware of:
- Trust Deed Investments are not insured by the FDIC or any other government agency. Additionally, SFG Direct, its principals, affiliate companies and associates are not allowed to guarantee the success of the investments. The investments involve certain risks and are suitable only for persons of adequate means who anticipate no need for immediate liquidity.
- The value of property is given by an appraiser reflecting his/her opinion of the value at a specific date. There is no assurance that the appraised value will reflect a fair market value, as general and local economic conditions may change.
- Although the investor makes the investment decision, the success of the investment will depend, in part, upon the experience and quality of the underwriting. You should not entrust all aspects of the investment decision and subsequent servicing to SFG Direct or its affiliates without full understanding of the delegated responsibilities and rights.
- The borrower's ability to repay the loan will depend upon the borrower's financial conditions which could change over time.
- There are general risks associated with real estate investments including general or local economic conditions, neighborhood values, interest rates, real estate tax rates, the supply of and demand for properties of the type involved, the ability of the borrower to obtain necessary alternative financing, governmental rules and acts of Nature.
- Default by the borrower could interrupt your monthly payments. Under extreme cases, it may be necessary to instruct SFG Direct to foreclose or take other actions to protect your investment. It is possible for the total amount recovered upon foreclosure to be less than the amount of your total investment, with resulting loss of capital to the investor.
- If a borrower files a reorganization or full insolvency bankruptcy, the foreclosure process could be stalled. Trust deed investors could incur significant legal fees and costs in attempting to obtain relief from the automatic freeze on collection proceedings provided by the Bankruptcy Code. Relief consists of obtaining court approval to release the property out of the bankruptcy so that the property can be foreclosed upon. Furthermore, the court could modify the terms of the loan by extending the due date, changing the interest rate and payment structure, or causing the priority of the loan to be subordinated to a bankruptcy court-approved financing plan.
