Realtors who are positioned to advise clients looking for investment real estate options can further serve clients by understanding the benefits self-directed plans offer in this realm.
Atlanta, Georgia (PRWEB) May 10, 2016
Advanta IRA is committed to the education of investors—and professionals like realtors who serve them—regarding all elements of using self-directed IRAs to build retirement income.
Many investors use self-directed accounts to acquire alternative assets such as gold, private equity and stock, crowdfunding ventures, futures and forex trading, and much more. However, investment real estate is the most popular asset in IRAs.
In addition to property, private lending options are permissible in these accounts. This is key, as some potential homeowners may not meet stringent requirements of traditional mortgage companies. Realtors who understand how self-directed plans can invest in private notes and mortgages above and beyond physical property can connect certain clients to achieve a win-win situation for all.
Real estate is often considered a safe hedge against stocks on the market and the right piece of property may build quite a nest egg towards retirement. “Realtors who are positioned to advise clients looking for investment real estate options can further serve clients by understanding the benefits self-directed plans offer in this realm,” says Jack Callahan, managing partner of Advanta IRA in Atlanta, Georgia.
Realtors interested in becoming a more valuable asset to their clients are encouraged to attend this seminar to learn more about self-directed IRAs, rules and regulations, and just how easy it is for investors to use these accounts. The course provides three hours of continuing education in their field, at no cost.
Seating is limited for this popular seminar and spaces must be reserved in advance.
