Now Featuring SSL and More!

Now Featuring SSL

For the longest time, we’ve been wanting to add more security to the site, but not something that would be too technical, nor expensive. As we may have mentioned, we’re a big fan of Linux, and our prime system is Linux Mint. Thus, when ever possible, we like to use Free and Open Resource Software. For a while, we were trying some Word Press Plugins, but they just weren’t working.

Finally, there were two options. The first is Let’s Encrypt. A number of the WP Plugins seem to use this, as it’s free. However, it didn’t seem to be working, and after trying a few options, looked at another option.

That option is SSL For Free. This allows the creation of the SSL certificates needed, and to create them in a simple text file, where it can then be taken into the C-Panel, go into the security section, and copy-paste the needed information. Now, 100K Investing, LLC, has a secured site. Thus, when going through the pages, and especially on the submission forms, they are secure. Previously, the secured forms were SSL were hosted on other servers.We’re leaving a few external forms, but most are now hosted locally. We did have to go through, and recheck the http urls are now https, and we believe we have that accomplished. If you see a page that has that url, from our site, please contact us, so we may fix it.


We now have an affiliate section, for those who are interested in promoting our Equity Share program. Affiliates will earn 1% of the money loaned to home owners. So, if a home’s worth $250,000 × 15% (amount loaned) = $37,500 to the home owner. $37,500 × 1% = $375 to the affiliate, upon closing.

For second/vacation homes, and rentals, in certain states, affiliates will earn a flat fee of $100.

When an affiliate refers another affiliate, that affiliate receives $50 for each primary home owner transaction closed, and for second/vacation homes, and rentals, in certain states, a flat fee of $25, and the referred affiliate receives their fee, as outlined above.

We will also be looking to open an affiliate program to our retirement account affiliations.

Equity Sharing News

Leverage your house to invest, no monthly payments nor interest!

In this last blog post, we introduced you to an alternative to HELOCs, HELs, and Cash-Out ReFis.

Since the initial information, we have added new pages to add information about How Equity Sharing Works, Looking Beyond Your Credit Score, Repaying Equity Sharing and Fees, and even have an Affiliate Program set up, for affiliate marketers. Even if you’re not an affiliate marketer, but know someone who may wish to have a loan based on the appraisal of their house, for no monthly payments nor interest, we can still offer you a referral fee.

There are two investor firms we work with. The main differences are that one will offer Equity Sharing on second/vacation homes, and rentals, and the other doesn’t; only in CA and WA. The other is that one works in more states than the other. The full list of states that Equity Sharing is currently available in are:

New Jersey
New York
North Carolina
District of Columbia / Washington D.C.

An affiliate does not need to live in one of these states, only the home owner does. Currently, we are only accepting affiliates in the US, but as we continue to grow, we are looking to offer the program to affiliates anywhere that PayPal works.
