Why Consider a Real Estate IRA?
Real estate is a real tangible asset. It will always be there regardless of what the financial markets are doing.
Rental properties provide a way of having two growth streams. One collected from potential rents and another from potential appreciation of the property. If the real estate is held in your IRA, this investment growth could be either tax-deferred or tax-free!
If you are familiar with real estate, or if you are a real estate investor, or if you are a real estate professional, you can leverage you knowledge by using your IRA funds as an additional source of capital for your real estate investments.
Because the real estate is held in a tax advantage retirement vehicle, there is no need to worry about using a 1031 exchange or other tax strategy when you buy or sell a property.
