How much time did you spend purchasing a vehicle? Was who or where you purchased from just as important as what you were purchasing? Buying a car or a truck is a major purchase and should be treated accordingly. You probably read reviews and comparisons, gathered the opinions of trusted friends and family about their
experiences with brands and dealerships. You used your personal knowledge and experiences as a guide while making this major purchase. Buying a vehicle is an investment.
The same is true for your self-directed IRA’s investments. The beauty of having a self-directed IRA is the freedom to use the resources you trust. Combining your knowledge, experience, and resources gives you a unique opportunity for investing for the future. It’s exciting, but not everyone takes full advantage of the resources available for smart investing. While it’s expected there will be ups and downs in any market, you shouldn’t be spending more time and energy on buying your next car than you do buying your next investment.
