What are Private Mortgage Investments?

Private mortgage investments are investments secured on real estate, usually outside of the scope of what banks and major financial institutions offer. Because most major financial institutions currently offer mortgage financing along the guidelines of government-owned crown corporations that offer default insurance (such as CMHC) these investments are more difficult to fund and therefore receive a higher rate of return than that offered by banks and financial institutions.

All the Private mortgages offered on The PIXchange are secured on real estate, with terms of  1 – 3 years. They go through a thorough due diligence and underwriting process, which include third-party appraisals, and inspections on each property provided as collateral. All mortgages are underwritten by Obsidian Mortgage Corporation and are priced based on risk, allowing our members to select private mortgages that suit their personal investment goals and suitability.

If you are new to the concept of Private mortgage investing, we also suggest you spend time to consider the risks involved with investing in private mortgages, click here for more details.
