The Self-Directed Real Estate IRA is one of the most powerful ways to build wealth

Using a Real Estate Self-Directed IRA can be an effective way for retirement investors to put aside money for the long term while building sizeable returns. But according to a recent post at American IRA, there are plenty of benefits for approaching real estate in a unique way: investors who partner with their own Self-Directed Real Estate.

Many investors worry about conflicts of interest that could put their funds in jeopardy. According to the article, “since your Real Estate Self-Directed IRA is a separate legal entity, the perfect, completely trustworthy partner who is guaranteed to have compatible goals is always available – yourself.” The article notes that partnering with oneself allows for greater access to capital, which can make certain investments possible that otherwise might not be possible.

The article notes that while income going to the Real Estate Self-Directed IRA will enjoy the same protections as it always would, one downside to partnering with a Self-Directed IRA is that taxable money would still be exposed. For instance, a portion of rent generated by a property would then be taxed, whereas using a Real Estate Self-Directed IRA exclusively can help this money to grow tax-free.

According to Jim Hitt, CEO of American IRA, investors will naturally have questions about these arrangements. “The Real Estate Self-Directed IRA is one of the most powerful ways to build wealth,” said Jim Hitt. “And people really want to maximize their potential returns, as any prudent retirement investor might want. Naturally, they have some questions. That is why we put out this post at the American IRA blog to explain.”

The post also notes the limitations of such an arrangement—for example, investors are not allowed to use the property for their personal benefit. The same rules that apply to holding real estate within a Self-Directed IRA hold true when the Self-Directed IRA is just one partner in a real estate holding.
