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.
Tampa, Florida (PRWEB) October 07, 2014
“Private lending transactions allow self-directed IRAs to perform the same actions a bank or other lending institution does 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. A growing number of investors use these accounts to invest in in nearly any type of lending transaction they deem might prove to be potentially successful.
Self-directed IRAs allow account owners total and complete control in choosing their own investments in things they know and understand. Additionally, these accounts allow a myriad of alternative investments besides private lending options. Real estate, precious metals, oil, gas and timber options, foreign exchange and futures trading are just a few popular non-traditional assets used to build income for retirement. .
In private lending transactions, account owners determine the terms of the loan made by their plans—which is how the IRA makes money. The account owner fully vets and chooses the loan recipient, dictates the terms of the loan, and 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,” says Callahan.
Private lending through a self-directed IRA offers benefits for the borrower, as well. The IRA can often provide funds to the borrower much faster, with more accommodating terms than traditional lending institutions.
