Private lending transactions allow self-directed IRAs to essentially 'be the bank' in extending loans for mortgages, trust deeds, secured and unsecured notes, and even for things such as judgments and structured settlements.
Tampa, Florida (PRWEB) August 13, 2014
“Private lending transactions allow self-directed IRAs to essentially “be the bank” in extending loans for mortgages, trust deeds, secured and unsecured notes, and even for things such as judgments and structured settlements,” says Jack Callahan, Managing Partner of Advanta IRA Services in Largo, Florida. Savvy investors use these accounts to acquire investments in nearly any type of lending transaction they deem might prove to be potentially successful.
The account owner determines the terms of the loan made by the self-directed plan based on his or her own comfort level. The IRA owner has the freedom to choose the loan recipient, dictates the terms of the loan, and also decides whether to provide a secured or unsecured loan. Secured loans are backed by collateral to protect from default. For example, if a note is extended for a mortgage and the borrower defaults, the IRA can take possession of the home. Unsecured loans typically are offered at a higher rate of interest in lieu of collateral. Profit from private lending is largely gained through earnings on interest rates and this income flows directly into a self-directed IRA on a tax-free or tax-deferred basis.
“Private lending through a self-directed IRA offers benefits for the borrower, as well,” says Callahan. The private lender (IRA) is able to provide a loan to the borrower much faster and possibly with more accommodating terms than traditional lending institutions.
Advanta IRA Services is holding this webinar on August 19th to educate investors on how to successfully use self-directed IRAs to invest in private loans. Investors of all levels are invited and encouraged to attend.
