Bellevue, Washington (PRWEB) June 05, 2013
Self-directed IRA provider, Silverstone.net, announces strategic partnership with commercial real estate investing experts. The recently inked partnership agreement is intended to enhance the client offerings for both companies. Real estate investors are able to rollover old IRA and 401(k) accounts so as to minimize tax liabilities otherwise incurred when investing passively. Current and new self-directed IRA holders are also provided broader investment options through reputable commercial real estate managers with an established and safe methodology for IRA investing in commercial real estate.
“The partnership represents a mutually-beneficial opportunity to provide greater returns with more fully mitigated risk to the individual investor,” says Troy Jenkins Silverstone Marketing Manager. “We recognize that private investments usually make us less diversified. For this reason, we only generally partner with reputable companies we feel help to enhance the options to our clients’ long-term goals and appetite for retirement investment risk.”
Unlike many of today’s real estate investors Silverstone’s commercial real estate partner works a proven system for avoiding some of the risks inherent in investing in commercial properties. First, each commercial property is purchased with cash. Lack of leverage means each property will not be the dispute of a foreclosure procedure. This helps to ensure any principle invested is not lost even in the unlikely event the property is not occupied. Secondly, a small number of investors take part in each investment. For instance, the average IRA investor contributes roughly $250,000 to any given commercial property. Most of the properties offered are under $3 million, meaning there are generally 10 individual investors or less that are invested in any particular commercial space. Finally, each property is generally new, has a great rental history and is filtered for other quality control factors. With most retirement investors seeking reliable returns and mitigated risk, the partnership represents a symbiotic approach to investing in real estate with retirement accounts.
Unfortunately, many retirement account holders are not fully aware of some of the investment options available to them. For instance, a truly self-directed IRA allows for investment in products outside of traditional mutual fund and money market accounts. In essence, a checkbook controlled retirement account allows individuals the ability to have more control and generally more options about where to invest for their retirement. For instance, IRA investors are free to invest in such things as commercial and residential real estate, private business and private equity or silver and gold.
“For the savvy investor, a truly self-directed IRA can help to maximize returns while still maintaining closer control over potential account risks,” says Jenkins. “It’s really the best of both worlds, especially for those seeking higher investment returns in a flat market. Our current commercial real estate investors are seeing much higher and steady returns from the improving commercial market. We not only expect this to continue, but trust that many of our IRA clients will be the beneficiaries.”
Silverstone facilitates the proper structuring and unique set-up of truly self-directed IRAs with checkbook control. Based in Bellevue, WA the company has helped countless individuals get started investing in alternative assets by using existing retirement funds. In particular, the company encourages investing in real estate, precious metals and private business with IRA funds. Silverstone also owns and operates a blog at RetirementCalculator.org, helping investors navigate the complexities by weighing the wants and needs required for safe retirement.
