Pre-Funding Note Fund

The Pre-Funding Note Fund, LLC (PFNF) is a line of credit that funds every project originated by Fund That Flip. The unique, short duration of PFNF provides minimal exposure to economic and cultural shifts that may affect the real estate properties’ values.

Passive real estate investment PFNF

When you invest capital through a series note issued by PFNF, you receive a series note in exchange (this is a debt instrument, not an equity investment in PFNF). PFNF invests capital raised via series notes into a prefunding line of credit. Principal in the line of credit is used to fund first-position mortgage loans secured by residential real estate.

Your series note has a fixed maturity date, as well as a fixed interest rate. PFNF generates income from the monthly interest paid by borrowers related to the underlying mortgages secured by the line of credit. Additionally, PFNF generates liquidity to repay the principal on the series note(s) through repayment of the line of credit as FTF Lending, LLC. (a wholly owned subsidiary of Fund That Flip) sells loans on the Fund That Flip Platform or to institutional loan buyers.

Why Invest in Real Estate?

There are plenty of ways to earn passive income. And like any investment, real estate comes with risk, pros, and cons. But in the last two decades, only returns from investing in private real estate have performed better than equities on a risk-adjusted and absolute basis.

One of the key benefits of investing in real estate is that even in an economic downturn, the asset is tangible and still holds value. Moreover, real estate prices/values have historically surpassed inflation rates. Additional benefits from real estate investing include:

  • Protection against inflation
  • Better historical performance than equities
  • Passive income opportunities
  • Tax advantages
  • Diversification due to lower correlation to public markets

What are the risks of investing with Fund That Flip?

Like any investment, there are risks involved with investing in real estate debt. There are also mitigating factors to help cushion those debts.

For example. the market value of the property could drop significantly, reducing opportunity for the developer to make a profit. However, the property is most likely located in a stable market and was purchased at a discount providing downside protection in a falling-price environment.

Or the developer may be unable to finish the property in the allotted term length. For this situation, Fund That Flip builds in an optional 3-month extension, approved only if the project is advancing at a satisfactory pace. The extension corresponds with an additional fee to be shared on a pro-rata basis with investors.

Prior to investing, you should fully diligence each deal,  as well as consult your investment, tax and legal advisors prior to investing. Additional risks for each deal will be outlined with the Offering Materials.

What is passive real estate investing?

Passive real estate investing is what our lenders do: They invest money into an asset with the expectation of generating income. It’s the traditional definition of an investment. The lender’s time is not required to manage or operate that real estate asset. The asset (like a distressed home) is backed by a note and a first-position lien.

On the flip side, active real estate investing, or what our borrowers do, means investing both equity and time into an asset to generate income, such as being a landlord or rehabbing a home. Active real estate investors are responsible for any of the following: Sourcing properties for acquisition, getting financing, overseeing construction and contractor teams, and/or managing tenants.

+

What is an accredited investor?

Accredited investors must meet this criteria:

A net worth of at least $1 million, either alone or together with a spouse or spousal equivalent (excluding the value of the person's primary residence), or

Earned an income that exceeded $200,000 (or $300,000 together with a spouse or spousal equivalent) in each of the prior two years, and reasonably expects the same for the current year, or

A Series 7, 65, or 82 license in good standing.
