The Real Estate IRA is a fantastic investment vehicle

A Self-Directed IRA can be a powerful tool for retirees who want to build equity quick. That knowledge is nothing new to American IRA, a Self-Directed IRA administrator in Asheville, North Carolina. But USA Today recently expanded on Real Estate IRAs by explaining the five best suburbs in the southeast for Self-Directed IRA owners to retire to—and American IRA is weighing in.

In a recent blog post at the American IRA website, the Self-Directed IRA administration firm explained the variables that go into making real estate investing a success for retirement investors, including the cost of living, median home prices, and property tax rates. The post then went into USA Today’s selections (such as Bermuda Run, North Carolina and Plantation, Florida) to show that Self-Directed IRAs are alive and well throughout the southwest—and the country.

“The Real Estate IRA is a fantastic investment vehicle for those who want to take advantage of something other than stocks,” said Jim Hitt, CEO of American IRA. “Our goal with this post was to show people just how favorable the retirement ‘climates’ can be in the southeast, and how Self-Directed IRAs can be fantastic tools for handling retirement the right way.”

Real Estate IRAs are possible because the IRS allows a wide variety of investment types in Self-Directed IRAs. Though there are many restrictions when it comes to using Real Estate IRAs, such as an investor living in the home they already own, many investors find it possible to build a strong retirement nest egg by using real estate as a key strategy.

“If you want to retire, then location is always a consideration,” said Jim Hitt. “That is what USA Today pointed out. And we echo that fact. But there is also more to the story here. There are plenty of ways for people to retire the right way if they know the tools they have at their disposal. And this is where Self-Directed IRAs come in handy.
