The amount of principal and interest paid each month over the duration of the loan/mortgage. 

Amortization is a financial term often used in the real estate industry and refers to the process of gradually paying off a debt, such as a mortgage, over a specified period.

What is Amortization?

Amortization is the process of paying off a debt over time, usually through a series of regular payments. In the context of real estate, it typically refers to the process of paying off a mortgage loan. Mortgage loans are often repaid over a long period, usually between 15 and 30 years, with the borrower making regular payments to the lender.

Why Does Amortization Matter in Real Estate?

Amortization is an essential concept in real estate because it affects the amount of interest and principal that a borrower pays on a mortgage. The amount of interest paid on a mortgage decreases over time as the principal balance is reduced, while the amount of principal paid increases. This means that the borrower will pay less interest over the life of the loan and more toward the principal, which ultimately reduces the debt owed.

For example

Let's say a real estate investor purchases a property for $500,000 with a 30-year mortgage loan at a fixed interest rate of 4%. The monthly mortgage payment, including the principal and interest, would be approximately $2,387. Over the first few years of the mortgage, the majority of the payments will go towards interest payments, with a smaller portion going toward the principal. However, as the principal balance is gradually reduced over time, the amount of interest paid on the mortgage will also decrease, while the portion of the payment that goes towards the principal will increase.

How Does Amortization Work in Real Estate?

Amortization schedules are calculated using complex mathematical formulas that take into account the loan amount, interest rate, and loan term. An amortization schedule will show the borrower the breakdown of each mortgage payment, including the portion that goes toward the principal and the portion that goes toward interest.

Amortization schedules are an essential tool for borrowers to understand their mortgage payments and plan for the future. By looking at an amortization schedule, borrowers can see how their mortgage payments will change over time and how much of their payment will go towards paying down the principal balance.

Amortization is a critical concept in real estate that refers to the process of paying off a mortgage loan over time

It affects the amount of interest and principal that a borrower pays on a mortgage, and it is an essential tool for borrowers to understand their mortgage payments and plan for the future. Real estate investors should take the time to understand how amortization works and how it affects their investments to make informed decisions and achieve their financial goals.

From time to time, Landa Holdings may organize limited liability companies or series limited liability companies, such as Landa App LLC and Landa App 2 LLC, and will raise funds for these entities through the App by relying on offerings exempt from registration requirements pursuant to Regulation A under the Securities Act of 1933 (“Regulation A”). Such companies shall be collectively referred to herein as “Landa App”.

Neither Landa Holdings nor Landa App is a broker-dealer or an investment advisor.

All securities (“Shares”) are being offered by one or more series (“Series”) registered under Landa App. Investing in securities involves risks, and there is always the potential of losing money when you invest in securities. Past performance is no guarantee of future results. Investments such as those offered by Landa App are speculative and involve substantial risks to consider before investing, outlined in the respective offering materials and including, but not limited to, illiquidity, lack of diversification, and complete loss of capital. An investment in an offering constitutes only an investment in a particular Series and not in Landa Holdings, Landa App, or any of the underlying asset(s). investors should carefully review the risks located in the respective offering materials for a more comprehensive discussion of risks.

You should speak with your financial advisor, accountant, and/or attorney when evaluating any offering of securities. Neither Landa Holdings, Landa App, nor Dalmore makes any recommendations or provides advice about investments, and no communication, through this website or in any other medium, should be construed as a recommendation for any security offered on or off this investment platform. Nothing in this material should be construed as investment or tax advice, or a solicitation or offer, or a recommendation to buy or sell any securities. The Site and/or the App may make forward-looking statements.

Landa Holdings intends to conduct a securities offering by each Series registered under Landa App pursuant to Regulation A.  From time to time, Landa App will seek to qualify additional Series offerings of securities under Regulation A. For offerings that have not yet been qualified, no money or other consideration is being solicited and, if sent in response, will not be accepted. No offer to buy Shares of a particular offering can be accepted, and no part of the purchase price can be received until an offering statement filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC") relating to that Series has been qualified by the SEC. Any such offer may be withdrawn or revoked, without obligation or commitment of any kind, at any time before notice of acceptance given after the date of qualification by the SEC. An indication of interest involves no obligation or commitment of any kind.

Investment overviews contained on the Site and/or the App contain summaries of the purpose and the principal business terms of the investment opportunities. Such summaries are intended for informational purposes only and do not purport to be complete, and each is qualified in its entirety by reference to the more detailed discussions contained in the applicable offering circular filed with the SEC. Neither Landa Holdings nor Landa App offers refunds after an investment has been made. Please review the relevant offering materials and subscription documentation for more information.

All Shares will be issued in electronic form only and will not be listed or quoted on any securities exchange. We expect that after a Series’ offering has concluded, the Public Private Execution Network Alternative Trading System, or PPEX ATS (the “Secondary Trading Platform”), which is registered with the SEC and operated by North Capital Private Securities Corporation (“North Capital”), will be a venue available for the resale of such Shares through Dalmore, as a broker-dealer member of the Secondary Trading Platform; provided, however, any such resale of Shares will be subject to federal and state securities laws and the restrictions in the Series’ Operating Agreement, and there can be no assurance that an active market for any Shares will develop on the Secondary Trading Platform, that the Secondary Trading Platform will be available to allow resales of Shares to residents of all states, or that the Secondary Trading Platform will be available at all. For these reasons, investors must be prepared to hold their Shares indefinitely.
