Get a boost on your IRA investing for 2013 with a self-directed IRA from Silverstone.net.
Seattle, Washington (PRWEB) April 03, 2013
With tax season in full swing, self-directed IRA provider Silverstone.net announces a significant discount for setting up self-directed retirement account prior to the end of the 2012 tax season. “Tax season is the time of year when investors have IRA contributions top-of-mind,” says Troy Jenkins, VP of marketing. “Because tax season can be a busy time for many investors, we like to incentivize IRA or 401(k) conversion into an IRA LLC.” Both Roth and Traditional self-directed IRAs provide some unique benefits not available to standard retirement account holders.
Retirement Risk Mitigation
Often referred to as an IRA LLC, the self-directed retirement account provides a number of unique benefits to investors. First, the accounts are less limited by custodial delays. That is, investors who may find a time-sensitive investment opportunity will not have to wait for custodial approval to have funds transferred. For the properly-structured IRA, the investor can simply write a check to pay for down payments, mortgage payments and financial notes.
Second, the accounts provide tax-free investment growth. Not only can investors maximize returns by having Roth IRA checkbook control within the accounts, but all growth can be achieved without the need to pay any capital gains or personal income taxes, ever.
A third benefit to setting up a self-directed Roth IRA LLC is the ability invest in assets outside the realm of most money market accounts and mutual funds. Most current IRAs and 401(k)s have been hit fairly dramatically by the rampant market swings in recent years. Luckily with an IRA LLC, the investor has more localized control over how the money is spent on very specific private investments.
Real Estate & More
The power of self-directed retirement accounts has benefited investors for decades, but in recent years the cost to setup such accounts has significantly diminished, making the barrier smaller for even the most common investor. With the barriers significantly lower, individual investors can take advantage of alternative assets with IRA funds. For instance, the a self-directed account can be used to invest in things like precious metals, financial paper, private business, private placement and even real estate. For the real estate IRA investor, checkbook control means distressed properties can transfer into your hands almost immediately and be flipped for a profit with no tax liability.
In addition, many are currently using their self-directed IRA as a hedge against potential inflation by investing in precious metals like gold and silver. Often referred to as a gold IRA, the IRA can help provide some security when interest rates begin to rise and the value of the dollar falls. “In essence, gold and real estate IRAs can help to mitigate against the retirement risk of rampant inflationary pressure on the Fiat currency held in your IRA,” says Jenkins.
Other, sometimes more sophisticated and connected investors, even use their self-directed account to invest in private equity and private placement opportunities. “As long as investors play within the self-directed IRA rules, the possibilities and returns can be substantial,” Jenkins says.
