We provide cutting-edge curriculum specifically designed for investors to learn how self-directed IRAs can build tax-free or tax-deferred income—knowledge individuals need to confidently make their own investment choices.

Advanta IRA provides administration to clients who hold over $700 million in assets in self-directed IRAs and similar plans. Those who self-direct prefer to make their own investing decisions and enjoy the freedom of acquiring alternative investments based on their own knowledge and expertise. Real estate is the number one asset acquired by self-directed accounts—making this webinar an event savvy investors will not want to miss.

Scott Maurer of Advanta IRA Services hosts this event featuring Jim Smaldone and Steve Hope. Smaldone has over 30 years of experience in real estate as a broker in Rhode Island, Massachusetts. He is the president of Gibraltar Property Group, Inc., and also serves as a regional head for a division of Blackstone. Hope also has extensive real estate experience, primarily in the mortgage industry.

During this webinar, Smaldone and Hope will talk about:

  •     Identifying real estate deals
  •     How to bid on the courthouse steps
  •     Rehab-and-flips
  •     Financing
  •     Researching property if title insurance is unavailable
  •     The need to have inspectors and contractors arranged before a purchase

Maurer will focus on how a self-directed IRA can participate in real estate investing and what an individual must know about using these plans to acquire alternative investments. He will also discuss different types of real estate assets clients of Advanta IRA use to build wealth for retirement.

The self-directed account administrator neither sells investments nor gives investment advice, but offers events like this one to provide critical information about self-directed IRAs and alternative assets such as real estate. “We provide cutting-edge curriculum specifically designed for investors to learn how self-directed IRAs can build tax-free or tax-deferred income—knowledge individuals need to confidently make their own investment choices,” says Jack Callahan, managing partner of Advanta IRA Services in Florida and Advanta IRA Administration in Georgia.

The offers weekly events that often feature guest speakers such as Smaldone and Hope. “Sometimes, hearing success stories from others helps investors understand the risks as well as the value of various types of investment options,” says Callahan.
