A self-directed IRA gives plan owners total control over their investment funds and decisions, allowing them to invest in what they know best—using assets such as real estate to build retirement income.
Atlanta, Georgia (PRWEB) August 09, 2015
Many individuals are under the mistaken assumption that in order to use an IRA for real estate investing, they must pull the funds out of the account, pay the taxes and penalties and then invest. However, by using a self-directed IRA, account owners acquire the asset(s) underneath the IRA umbrella, thus avoiding any taxes or penalties, and preserving more capital to invest. Income derived from assets held in retirement accounts grows on a tax-deferred or tax-free basis. These accounts are popular with people who wish to avoid the potential hazards of the stock market and seek to acquire alternative investments that can potentially present a more certain and steady growth towards retirement.
“A self-directed IRA gives plan owners total control over their investment funds and decisions, allowing them to invest in what they know best—using assets such as real estate to build retirement income,” says Jack Callahan, managing partner of Advanta IRA Administration in Atlanta, Georgia.
The firm is hosting this lunch and learn on August 12 from 12:00 – 1:30 pm, which is offered at no cost to investors, individuals, and industry professionals who wish to learn more about self-direction and the opportunities these account structures represent. Real estate is the most common asset held in these plans, so this seminar will focus on the different types of real estate investments permissible within them.
Attendees learn about how the process works, what steps to take, and the rules and regulations that govern these transactions. The class will also touch on other types of investments that can be made with a self-directed IRA.
Those interested in earning the designation of self-directed IRA specialist can attend and receive credit towards the required curriculum of Advanta IRA University. Real estate and other professionals find this a valuable tool in becoming an informational powerhouse for clients and potential clients.
