A Self-Directed IRA is a fund that is considered an entity independent of its owner. That makes it easy for investors to partner these funds together, according to a recent post at American IRA.

A Self-Directed IRA is a powerful tool for building a retirement nest egg, but it can also be a flexible one. As a recent post at American IRA ( noted, investors can partner Self-Directed IRA funds with other Self-Directed IRA funds for investments. These funds can then function just like any other investment stakes—for example, a Self-Directed IRA can fund 30% of an investment and handle 30% of the expenses, receiving 30% of the income.

Why would an investor want to partner their Self-Directed IRA with another? The post at American IRA went into detail into the benefits of partnering, noting that these arrangements can “open the door to the many possibilities of real-estate investing, including buying the property through direct purchase or investing in a promissory note.” Through these arrangements, an investor can gain access to arrangements for which they would otherwise not have sufficient funds.

“There is a lot of flexibility here,” notes Jim Hitt, CEO of American IRA. “When an investor partners their Self-Directed IRA with someone else’s Self-Directed IRA, it creates more overall capital. That capital can then be used in the market for a variety of things, including real estate deals that either individual would not be able to partake in—not without partnering. The act of partnering increases flexibility and freedom and can secure lots of future payments through investments such as real estate.”

Partnering does not alter the essential rules of owning a Self-Directed IRA, the article notes. However, investors should be careful not to break the “Disqualified Persons” rule. But on a “new transaction, you can partner with anyone you choose,” writes the article, “even those who are on the list of disqualified persons.” This applies to new transactions and first purchases of a real estate property.

“These can be tough waters to navigate,” Jim Hitt said. “But investors who do their homework will find there is a lot of freedom and flexibility when it comes to partnering.”
