Those are two very different markets, as I'm sure you know - and probably have horror stories to boot.Yes indeed... and my devil's advocacy was really a back-arsed way of further supporting your point. Direct lending small amounts (under $5 MM, say) for yield is a very hard row to hoe, and far moreso since private lending to residential borrowers is functionally outlawed. An individual who may want to lend secured on real estate is hard-pressed to find good borrowers (its not like there's an easily accessed high-volume market of borrowers to choose from & write loans to.)At present, those who really wish to do this are getting just 2-4% from sophisticated residential real estate portfolio investors... and even that is very much "up in the air" gray area in the current regulatory environment.Dave DonhoffLeverage Planner
