Self-directed IRA owners know that investments in notes and mortgages can be considerable assets in their retirement portfolios and provide necessary diversity recommended for all investment accounts.
Tampa, Florida (PRWEB) November 16, 2014
Private mortgage lending is becoming increasingly popular among savvy investors who understand they can make these investments using a self-directed IRA to build wealth for retirement. Funding from traditional lending institutions to purchase homes continues to be challenging to acquire since the fall of the housing market years ago.
“Self-directed IRA owners know that investments in notes and mortgages can be considerable assets in their retirement portfolios and provide necessary diversity recommended for all investment accounts,” says Jack Callahan, managing partner of Advanta IRA Services in Largo, Florida. These transactions offer benefits for IRA owners and the borrowers they loan funds to.
Borrowers are grateful for the opportunity of being able to acquire funding for purchasing homes and of avoiding jumping through the hoops of traditional lending institutions. The retirement account accrues income on the interest rate assigned and other terms of the loan agreed upon by lender and borrower. “In cases of loan default, acquirement of the real estate asset can potentially garner hefty gains in an IRA at a future time of sale,” says Callahan.
Individual homes loans are not the only real estate assets allowed in self-directed IRAs and similar investment accounts. Other examples include:
- Raw/unimproved land
- Commercial property
- Multi-family homes (apartments, duplexes, condominiums)
- Rental properties
- Real estate purchase options
- Tax liens and certificates; tax deeds
Advanta IRA Services is holding this complementary lunch and learn to educate self-directed IRA owners on the potential of private mortgage lending ventures in these accounts. Topics covered include:
- Roles and responsibilities of the borrower and the IRA in these transactions
- Use of retirement funds from different accounts to make these investments
- Rules regarding disqualified persons and prohibited transactions
Investors of all levels are invited and encouraged to attend.
