APT transactions are funded by private investors.
For each application received, a separate
investor is sourced.
APT transactions are full-disclosure. Multiple
may be grouped into a single application.
General Property Acquisition
The APT Transaction is NOT a loan, and in no way
should it be construed as a loan.
However, certain aspects of an APT transaction are
structured similar to a loan or mortgage in that the
applicant is required to pay monthly amortized
payments and an interest rate that is determined by
the International Investor.
The APT transaction general property acquisition
program, requires a payment by the applicant of
20% of the purchase price.
Once an application is received, the international investor is
sourced, and an approval issued. documents are then prepared
and executed by all parties.
At closing, two (2) separate transactions are executed to conclude the
acquisition of the property.
First, the International Investor purchases the property and the
property is titled to the International Investor.
Second, within approximately 24 – 48 hours following the closing by
the International Investor, it conveys title of the property to a
specially created Trust and simultaneously the trust conveys to the
applicant, a first option to acquire the property from the Trust at an
agreed upon purchase price.
This purchase price is referred to as the trust balance .
Once the deed is conveyed to the trust, the property is owned by the
Neither the international investor, nor the applicant share in the
ownership of the property at that time,
however, the applicant will be conveyed an option to purchase the
property from the trust at any time prior to seven (7) years.
The time frame associated with the closing (s) is determined
exclusively by the international investor.
The trust is managed by a duly assigned fiduciary. This is typically
the attorney retained by our underwriter to conduct this portion of
The monthly payments on the trust balance are amortized much in
the same way a mortgage loan is amortized.
When the applicant exercises his option to purchase the property
back from the trust , all payments made to date will be credited to
the trust balance in the same way payments are credited to the
principal balance of a mortgage loan.
The only way an applicant may lose the property is by defaulting on
the monthly trust payments, much in the same way a mortgage loan
default would work.
this transaction is NOT a mortgage loan

Applicants of APT programs must be
agreeable to a higher cost in connection
with acquiring their property.
Yet others are specific to this program:
The APT analysis fee is charged to locate and place the transaction
with a private investor.
It serves no other purpose.
It is paid directly to American Property Trust at the same time the
application is submitted.
It is refundable only in the event that the application is
not approved or if the transaction cannot be completed on account of
the APT sourced investor.
The appraisal fee is contingent on the willingness
of the seller to carry this expense.
If payable, it is paid directly to the appraiser. The
sourced investor may or may not accept a dated

MAI appraisal. In any case, it is the sourced
investor that has the final word on appraisal

These funds must be in the form of cash.
Equity in any property may not substitute for cash
Cash consideration funds will be placed in a title escrow
and will be released at closing.
The investor fee is what the investor charges to perform on a qualifying
transaction. It is a small price to pay for an enormous individual
commitment on the part of the sourced investor.
The exact amount of the investor fee is determined by the transaction size
and the amount the investor has approved.
It is not possible to determine in advance of submitting an application
where the investor fee will precisely come in.
Therefore, applicants should base their decision to apply on the
maximum investor fee of 5-15%.
The investor fee is not paid out-of-pocket.
It is rolled into the trust balance .
The closing costs incurred by the APT sourced investor in
connection with purchasing the property is passed onto

though they will be detailed prior to completion of the
transaction. Applicants that need this information prior to
applying for the APT program should not apply.

transaction value and may at the discretion of the
sourced investor be
rolled-into the trust balance
Applicants should apply for an APT approval
only if they are agreeable to the potential
fees involved, only some of which are
known prior to the submission
of an application.

It is sometimes difficult to adjust to the idea that an
applicant will be approved regardless of credit score,
income, job status verification.
This, however, is definitely the case, as APT programs are
not loans and money is not being borrowed.
APT does not evaluate the applicant beyond personal
character references. Instead, the property and
appraised value are the central focus.
As long as minimal requirements are met, the application
will usually be approved by an sourced investor.

When carefully examined, the APT program is seamless
and easy to convey. In fact, the processing of an APT
application and closing is by far speedier and less
complex than financing via a mortgage loan.
The APT program is not exclusively suitable for individuals
with poor credit.
Interestingly, many of the applicants we receive are of
excellent credit standing, but prefer a discreet acquisition
process with a minimal paper trail.
