Real Estate in IRAs
Little-Known Secret Allows Real Estate Investors to Create True Wealth
Historically, real estate has given many Americans with a stable investment vehicle that provides both income and appreciation. One of the greatest tools available to real estate investors is government-sponsored retirement plans, such as IRAs and 401(k)s.
Most investors believe that their only IRA investment options are bank CDs, the stock market, and mutual funds.
Few Americans realize that they have the option to self-direct their IRAs and other retirement plans into real estate—and that they can benefit from the tax advantages those plans provide. IRA investments earn tax-deferred/tax-free profits.
Imagine not having to pay taxes right away—or ever—on your real estate deals. Instead of paying 25%, or 30%, or even 50% of your profits to the government in taxes, you keep it.
Additional advantages of the real estate IRAs include:
- The power of compound interest
- A reduction of taxable income
- Asset protection
- Estate planning
If you're a successful real estate investor, or if you're just looking to diversify your retirement portfolio, the combination of real estate and your IRA can be very powerful.
