Advanta IRA is seeing a growing number of clients using their self-directed IRAs to invest in real estate using private LLCs and trusts.
Tampa, Florida (PRWEB) November 18, 2014
Self-directed IRAs are used by savvy investors to gain complete control of their own investment funds and decisions. These accounts allow a large pool of alternative investments that grow retirement income on a tax-free or tax-deferred basis. Popular assets that account owners choose include oil and gas options, precious metals, private lending investments, foreign exchange, futures trading—and much more. However, real estate investments are the most favored among those who understand the wealth building potential these assets can present.
There are different ways self-directed plans can be structured for use in compliance with IRS rules that govern these accounts. In real estate transactions, most often the asset is held in the name of the retirement account. However, using LLCs and trusts to hold real estate in IRAs is also an allowed type of structure for these plans.
“Advanta IRA is seeing a growing number of clients using their self-directed IRAs to invest in real estate using private LLCs and trusts,” says Jack Callahan, managing partner at Advanta IRA Services in Florida. The details involved can certainly be a bit more intricate than the average acquisition of assets in an IRA.
“There are complexities involving these types of arrangements, which is why Advanta IRA is holding more seminars and webinars to educate investors about using their IRAs in this manner, which helps them determine if these structures are ones they should consider,” says Callahan.
Advanta IRA provides administration to clients across the nation who self-direct their retirement plans. In addition to the vast amount of alternative investments permissible in these accounts, there are different types of accounts that can be self-directed: traditional and Roth IRAs, SIMPLE and SEP IRAs, individual(k) plans, as well as health and educational savings plans.
Advanta IRA has tailored their November 21 event to investors who are unfamiliar with self-directed IRAs. Participants can expect to learn the pros and cons of self-direction in general, as well as how to use their self-directed IRAs to make real estate investments using private LLCs and trusts. Spaces are limited for this popular event, so those who wish to attend should reserve their spot today.
