(LOS ANGELES, May 12, 2016) — Modern Living with kathy ireland® announces an exclusive feature story about Ignite Funding, a company offering Americans crowd-funded investments secured through collateralized real estate.
Kathy Ireland interviewed Ignite Funding’s President, Carrie Cook, to learn more about their services and solutions.
Ms Cook commented on why so many investors steer clear of the real estate market during the segment. She said, “I would love to know the answer to that. Why would they? Real estate is a part, and should be a part, of everyone’s portfolio. It’s not just stocks and bonds and mutual funds. Real estate is very, very important.”
She continued by speaking on what her company is doing to mitigate the risks of investing in real estate. She said, “Mitigating the risk is making sure that you are underwriting and the valuation of those assets are done diligently and efficiently and that you walk all of the properties. Also, making sure that you do not lend 100% to anybody. Who would do that? So lending 75% of what the value of that property is, mitigates the risk for an investor if you have to take the property back, if you are foreclosed on.”
JL Haber, the show’s Vice President of Programming, added, “I have often wondered why people are so scared of investing in real estate and Carrie answered my question. It is great that she is changing the game for real estate investors and investments.”
