Realtors who are positioned to give advice to clients looking for investment properties can further serve these clients by having knowledge of the benefits of different types of retirement accounts, such as self-directed IRAs.
Atlanta, Georgia (PRWEB) October 05, 2015
Advanta IRA Administration is a self-directed retirement plan administrator serving clients across the nation. The firm is committed to the education of investors—and professionals like realtors who serve investors—regarding all elements of using self-directed IRAs. This continuing education course is being held at the North Atlanta Metro Association of Realtors® (NAMAR) on October 13 at no cost to realtors.
Many investors use self-directed accounts to acquire alternative investments such as real estate, tax liens and certificates, and to invest in private loans and mortgages. Additionally, some potential homeowners may not meet the stringent requirements of traditional mortgage companies. Realtors who understand how self-directed IRAs can invest in private notes and mortgages can connect certain clients to achieve a win-win situation for all.
These facts should be of great interest to real estate professionals across the nation. Real estate is considered a safe hedge against the sharp edge of the stock market and the right piece of property may build quite a nest egg towards retirement. “Realtors who are positioned to give advice to clients looking for investment properties can further serve these clients by having knowledge of the benefits of different types of retirement accounts, such as self-directed IRAs,” says Jack Callahan, managing partner of Advanta IRA Administration in Atlanta, Georgia.
Realtors interested in becoming a more valuable asset to their clients are encouraged to attend this continuing education class to learn more about real estate in self-directed IRAs, rules and regulations, and just how easy it is for investors to use these accounts.
Seating is limited and spaces must be reserved in advance by contacting NAMAR.
