The vast majority of families with annual incomes over $100,000 have money invested in the stock market. What’s amazing is that a very small percentage of the investing public (maybe 1%) practice private lending as an investment strategy. In other words, very few investors understand that you can “be the bank”.

For accredited investors, we provide an opportunity to invest in our loan fund, Avondale Private Lending LLC (“the fund”).  The overall objective of the fund is to deliver target returns of 8-12% per year (net of fees) to investors by originating first lien, business purpose loans that are collateralized by real estate.  Minimum investments are $50,000 and all types of IRAs (Traditional, Roth, SEP, SIMPLE) can be used through a self-directed IRA custodian.


Annual Income %

Benchmarks: Bankrate Money Market Accounts, Bankrate 2-Year CD, S&P 500 Dividend Yield, AAA Rated 10-Year Muni Bond. No standard benchmark for private loans.
Private lending is such an underutilized investment strategy. So many people invest in real estate, but very few people invest in loans that are secured by real estate. That is the opportunity.
— John Spears, Founder

An investment in our fund is ideal for income-oriented, accredited investors seeking one of the following:

  1. High yield income. Investors can earn annual returns of 8-12%.

  2. A secured investment. Each loan is secured by a Deed of Trust.

  3. An alternative investment. Unlike stocks and bonds, private loans are a niche asset class.

  4. A tangible investment. Investors can meet borrowers and visit properties related to the loans.

  5. Be the bank. Private lending allows you to participate in one of the oldest forms of finance.
