We have two of the hottest markets in the nation right now

Noting that Raleigh, NC recently took the #2 spot in this year’s Hottest Housing Markets for 2018 from Zillow, American IRA—itself based in North Carolina—noted recently that Self-Directed Real Estate IRA investors may want to pay attention to two key North Carolina real estate markets if they are to make the most of their retirement accounts. Charlotte, NC—rated the fourth hottest market in the country, according to Zillow—also fared well in recent lists.

But what does this mean for Self-Directed Real Estate IRA investors? Those local to the Raleigh or Charlotte markets may have plenty of opportunities to identify key investments they can hold within a Self-Directed IRA, according to Jim Hitt, CEO of American IRA. By identifying the key investments that can grow a portfolio for a long time, investors have access to more than simply stocks and bonds to enjoy a secure retirement.

“We have two of the hottest markets in the nation right now,” Jim Hitt said. “Not only is Raleigh one of the top-rated markets, but Charlotte made it in the top five for North Carolina. The only other state that could say that was California with Silicon Valley.”

Other familiar names—such as Dallas and Austin, TX—appeared on the list, pointing out that there are plenty of opportunities for those with a Self-Directed Real Estate IRA to identify local real estate investments. But Jim Hitt also points out that a real estate investment has to make sense for individual investors, whether or not it takes place in a “hot” market.

“There is more to real estate investing than simply going to the hot places,” said Jim Hitt. “A real estate investor has to do their due diligence. But what this list says to me is that there are plenty of opportunities for identifying great properties in North Carolina—and that is true almost everywhere you turn.”

With a Self-Directed Real Estate IRA, an investor could hold on to more money in the long-term, which in turn helps build a substantial retirement nest egg not entirely reliant on the stock market.
