Insider’s Secrets: The Top 10 Pitfalls of Trust Deed Investing, Published by Outskirts Press

Las Vegas, NV, November 29, 2010 --( Successful real estate CEO Brian Davison today announced the release of The Top Ten Pitfalls of Trust Deed Investing (How to Avoid Them and Invest for Success), Off Wall Street Investing Risk Management, published by Outskirts Press. Davison’s revealing investment handbook notes, to start, that the major difference between the current Wall Street financial crisis and private trust deeds is that most of the pitfalls in trust deed investing can be identified, mitigated or avoided prior to investing.

Davison succinctly shares his insider secrets to the pitfalls of trust deed lending by revealing clearly the inherent conflicts of interest between the investors and the mortgage brokers, the crippling high fractionalized lending model, the dangers in unimproved land speculation, the “creative math” of interest reserves, the commercial property myth, the gamble of future variations, and the inept nature of loan-to-own underwriting. With this information investors can easily identify these risks prior to their commitment to an investment.

Davison has found over his years of working with investors that one major pitfall for investors has been, remarkably, that they do often not understand exactly what they are investing in. The Top Ten Pitfalls of Trust Deed Investing quickly and concisely educates investors so that they can avoid these trust deed pitfalls that quickly turn into traps that can bring on financial loss for the ignorant investor.

“Investors should be looking for high yields with the safety of simple, secured investments,” says Davison. His new handbook teaches investors to accomplish that by turning away from general investment turmoil and from the lack of transparency of Wall Street.

“A clear concise analysis of what happened to investors in this ‘Perfect Storm.’ Only a few very strong investors had the foresight and experience to see the storm coming, work inside the eye of the storm and create opportunity from chaos. One of those individual is the author of this book, Brian Davison.” - Diane Dutton, CPA, author of A Woman’s Ladder to Success is Paved with Broken Glass Ceilings.
