Atlanta, Georgia (PRWEB) October 15, 2013
When a self-directed IRA participates in private lending transactions, the IRA plays the part a bank normally does by providing loans for mortgages and trust deeds, secured and unsecured notes, and even for things such as judgments and structured settlements. Smart investors make private loans to individuals or entities to potentially build wealth in their retirement accounts. “Profit from private lending is gained through earnings on interest rates and repayment terms of these loans and the income flows directly into a self-directed IRA on a tax-free or tax-deferred basis,” says Jack Callahan, Managing Partner of Advanta IRA Administration in Atlanta, Georgia.
Private lending through a self-directed IRA offers benefits for both the lender and borrower. “The private lender (IRA) provides capital to the borrower much faster and with more accommodating terms than traditional lending institutions,” says Callahan.
The IRA owner chooses the loan recipient, the type and terms of the loan, and also decides whether to provide secured or unsecured loans. Secured loans are backed by collateral to protect from default. Unsecured loans typically are offered at a higher rate of interest in lieu of collateral.
In an effort to educate investors nationwide on the benefits and risks of private lending, Advanta IRA Administration is holding a lunch and learn on October 18, 2013. Mark and Anne Lackey are successful real estate investors who will lead this event by providing their secrets to success. Investors of all levels are invited and encouraged to attend.
