I am an active real estate agent and appraiser in the Tampa Bay area. That knowledge gives me an edge in making real estate investments. I capitalize on my experience when determining real estate investments in our self-directed IRA.
Tampa, Florida (PRWEB) November 15, 2014
Advanta IRA Services provides self-directed account administration to clients nationwide. With a local office in the Tampa, Florida area, Advanta IRA holds many educational events designed to teach investors how to use self-directed IRAs to build wealth for retirement. Dave Shaw, area real estate investor, uses his self-directed plan to do exactly that—and has achieved success in doing so.
Self-directed accounts provide plan owners control over making their own investment decisions, based on things they know and understand. Additionally, these plans allow a myriad of alternative investments—such as real estate—that build wealth for retirement on a tax-free or tax-deferred basis.
Shaw self-directs his account and is so supportive of self-direction that he recently attended and graduated from Advanta IRA University (Advanta U), receiving the designation of self-directed IRA specialist. Advanta U offers specialized curriculum to teach professionals such as realtors, attorneys, and CPAs how these plans work using alternative investments outside the traditional stock, bond, or mutual fund.
“Ups and downs can happen in the housing market, too,” says Shaw. “However, when you self-direct and YOU choose your investments wisely and make your decisions based on what you know and understand, you can mitigate the impact on your portfolio.” Shaw has 14 years of experience as a Certified Property Appraiser. “I am an active real estate agent and appraiser in the Tampa Bay area. That knowledge gives me an edge in making real estate investments. I capitalize on my experience when determining real estate investments in our self-directed IRA,” adds Shaw.
