Investment Approach



STEP #1:

Borrower obtains a mortgage from his/her local bank.


STEP #2:

Mortgage changes from performing to non-performing due to hardships such as job loss.


STEP #3:

Bank wants the non-performing mortgage off their books.


STEP #4:

We buy mortgage as part of a pool from the bank, at a deeply discounted price.



STEP #5:

Our servicer restructures to affordable levels,keeping the borrower in their home via modification and refinancing.


STEP #6:

We season and later sell the mortgages as a re-performing loan with significant profit.There is positive social impact for the family and foreclosure rates remain low.


STEP #7:

We use low-cost capital & experienced underwriting to create homeownership opportunities in undeserved markets via affordable financing & affordable housing creation.


STEP #8:

We season and sell loan originations and acquistions.

Market Opportunity

Pricing, competition, and the economy have created an opportunity to make very attractive returns in the distressed mortgage market.

Historically low homeownership rates & tight lending standards put pressure on banks & government sponspered entities to increase afforadable financing.

These factors have created an opportunity for DRI to earn attractive returns by participating in this market.
