In private lending transactions, the self-directed IRA is in essence the bank, extending loans to qualified individuals or entities for things such as new home purchases or for business start-up or expansion capital.
Atlanta, Georgia (PRWEB) November 18, 2013
Self-directed IRAs allow account owners to decide how to invest their own funds instead of relying on third parties to choose investments for them. One of the most popular alternative investments allowed within self-directed IRAs is private lending. “In private lending transactions, the self-directed IRA is in essence the bank, extending loans to qualified individuals or entities for things such as new home purchases or for business start-up or expansion capital,” says Jack Callahan, Managing Partner of Advanta IRA Administration. Private loans are also made to other investors to use for their own investment choices. These loans are hard money types and involve repayment over a predetermined period of time, with a set interest rate on the amount of money loaned.
The amount of interest charged is how the IRA or other self-directed plan earns a profit. Typically, when loaning funds for a mortgage for either personal or commercial property, the loan is secured with that piece of property. “If the mortgagee defaults, the IRA takes possession of that property at which point the IRA owner can decide to sell it or lease it out…which builds additional funds within the IRA,” says Callahan. If there is any equity in the property, the loan can be secured by that equity, as well.
