There are many different assets investors acquire using real estate IRAs and the point of self-direction is that account owners make their own decisions as to which investments they want to make.
Atlanta, Georgia (PRWEB) October 19, 2014
Self-directed IRAs are powerful investment accounts that allow owners total control over their investment funds and decisions to build wealth for retirement on a tax-free or tax-deferred basis. The most popular investment in these accounts is real estate. Commonly called real estate IRAs, these plans can hold commercial and residential properties, raw land, private lending investments, and much more.
Realtors are encouraged to learn why more individuals are choosing to use these accounts. Attendees learn how these plans work, investments that are permissible, and how they can apply this knowledge within their profession to become informational powerhouses for clients who are investors.
“There are many different assets investors acquire using real estate IRAs and the point of self-direction is that account owners make their own decisions as to which investments they want to make,” says Jack Callahan, managing partner of Advanta IRA Administration in Atlanta, Georgia.
Investments permissible in self-directed accounts include:
- Rehab-and-flip projects
- Commercial and rental property
- Single and multi-family homes
- Improved and unimproved land
- Notes and mortgages
- Tax liens and deeds
As one of the nation’s leading self-directed plan administrators, Advanta IRA does not sell investments or give advice pertaining to investments. “We do provide weekly educational events designed not only for investors but for professions that serve investors to learn about self-directed IRAs and the large pool of alternative investments allowed in these accounts,” says Callahan.
Realtors who want to learn more about real estate IRAs can attend this class and receive three hours of continuing education. Participants gain knowledge in all areas of self-direction including:
- What a real estate IRA is and how it works
- How these accounts can attract clients and grow commission for realtors
- How knowledge of self-directed IRAs can benefit their own portfolios
- What types of retirement accounts can be self-directed
- Types of investments and transactions that are not permitted in these plans
There are only a few days left to register for this popular event and spacing is limited. Those who wish to attend are highly encouraged to reserve their spots today!
