The Norris Group offers high-yield trust deed (CA) and mortgage (FL) investments starting at 6.0% to private individuals, corporations, pension plans, 401Ks, retirement funds, IRAs, foundations, endowments, Roth IRAs, Self-Directed IRAs, Charitable Remainder Trusts (CRTs) and SEP accounts. These are passive, secured investments and we only offer notes in first position.

When you invest in a trust deed or mortgage, you become the bank and The Norris Group acts as your personal broker. More specifically, with The Norris Group, you become a private money source for real estate investors who purchase, repair and resell real estate; buy to hold rental properties; or borrowers private money to add construct new properties.

  • Equity– our loan programs are brokered at 60-70% of After Repair Value (or LTV depending on the program)
  • Money Down – All of our professional real estate investors will have skin-in-the-game via personal funds and equity spread in the transaction serving as their commitment that the loan payment is a priority
  • 1st Position Only – Our investors are the only holder of the note and in first position. Control is key.
  • No Pooling of Funds – The Norris Group does not pool funds. This gives the investor more control of the investment. Occasionally, we will fractionalize larger loans but only in equal shares with qualified investors. Control is key
  • Non-Owner Occupied Properties Only– The Norris Group only brokers loans on non-owner occupied, single-family properties and units (1-4) to a unique client, the professional real estate investor for business purposes only

Sometimes this topic can seem overwhelming so The Norris Group has created two great resources to help better explain trust deeds, the process, the players, and how you can get involved.
