Deciding where to invest your money wisely can be a challenge, especially when you are new to the investing game or you’re just getting your feet wet in real estate. Whether this is your first foray into investing or you’ve been doing it for years, investing with Walnut Street Finance is an ideal strategy to realize your investment opportunities.
Why Is Investing With Walnut Street Finance Better Than Other Investing Options?
To be frank, investing with Walnut Street Finance is better than other investment options, such as putting your money into the stock market or purchasing property and becoming a landlord because it has high returns. When you choose to invest in the stock market your money is doing a lot of hard work, but it’s also put into some pretty precarious positions. The stock market has so many outside forces affecting it that while experts can do their best to predict market stability they can’t prevent a sudden, drastic downturn caused by things they can’t control such as politics or natural disasters. A logical alternative might be to put your money to work for yourself, by yourself, by purchasing property and becoming a landlord. In a perfect world you would be able to sit back and collect a check every month as you tenants dutifully pay their rent on time, but in reality you may end up chasing them month to month for their rent checks while you’re also dealing with maintenance issues and ensuring that none of your units are left vacant.
Which brings us back to investing with Walnut Street Finance. We take care of the heavy lifting, and you actually do get to sit back and watch your returns grow.
What Makes Walnut Street Finance A Better Choice Than Someone Else?
At Walnut Street Finance, we aren’t only experts on real estate investing, we’re also experts on real estate development. In fact, Walnut Street started as a development company that - after decades of success - transitioned into a private money lender. With that development expertise behind us, we carefully screen the project proposals that come into our offices for consideration and make knowledgeable decisions on whether or not the project will be a hit. If a project doesn’t meet our parameters, or if we don’t think there is a profit to be had, then we don’t invest - it’s as simple as that . That said, for the properties Walnut Street does invest in, we make it easy for developers to work with us, which ensures that we’ve always got a strong portfolio of properties in the mix.
How Do I Know My Money Is Protected?
All of our loans are secured, first-lien real estate loans, that are collateralized by hard assets. But what does that mean, exactly? Well, it means that we aren’t betting on ideas or flights of fancy. When you invest with Walnut Street Finance, you’re investing in projects that show a true path to success. Commercial real estate is considered a hard asset because there’s a strong demand for it and a history of long-term appreciation. Additionally, as the first-lien holders we are first in line to receive payment in the event of a default over all lien holders including other investors, utility companies, contractors, etc. Our expertise in development and strict selection process means that our investments have a high rate of success.
