Atlanta, Georgia (PRWEB) June 17, 2014
Self-directed IRAs provide many advantages for investors who use them. The most important benefit for account owners is total control in making their own investment decisions. Self-directed accounts also provide a large pool of alternative investments such as real estate, private loans and mortgages, tax liens and certificates, LLCs, precious metals, foreign exchange, oil and gas opportunities and many more permissible assets that may build retirement income.
“One of the most popular investments within a self-directed IRA is real estate—hence the term ‘real estate IRA,’” says Jack Callahan, Managing Partner of Advanta IRA Administration. Realtors who are familiar with the benefits self-directed IRAs offer can in turn provide advice to clients who are also investors. Realtors with knowledge of real estate IRAs can also cultivate a new client base of investors in addition to their typical clients who are purchasing homes to live in.
“Advanta IRA has clients who use their IRAs to make investments in other real estate related assets including extending private mortgages, acquiring tax liens and certificates, and purchasing properties to use as rentals in order to build wealth towards retirement,” says Callahan. It is obvious why realtors become a more valuable resource to their clients when educated in this realm.
Advanta IRA Administration is hosting a three-hour continuing education class at no cost for realtors designed to empower real estate professionals in the knowledge of real estate IRAs. For more information regarding Advanta IRA, visit http://www.AdvantaIRA.com/georgia.
