Atlanta, Georgia (PRWEB) November 02, 2015 -- A self-directed IRA gives account owners total control over their investment funds and decisions, allowing them to acquire a long list of alternative investments to build retirement income. Real estate investing is the most popular transaction in these plans. Advanta IRA is holding these complimentary educational events to teach investors how the process works.
There are several different real estate-related assets the firm has seen clients acquire:
• Single and multi-family homes
• Improved and unimproved land
• Private mortgages
• Tax liens and deeds
• Foreign land
“Real estate may be purchased and sold within self-directed retirement plans without incurring the typical tax implications individuals who personally invest in these assets have to pay,” says Jack Callahan, managing partner of Advanta IRA Administration in Georgia and of Advanta IRA Services in Florida. Funds do not have to be taken or otherwise distributed from the IRA first. Account owners simply acquire the asset(s) underneath the IRA umbrella, thus avoiding any taxes or penalties, and preserving more capital to invest.
These events are offered at no cost to investors, individuals, and industry professionals, like realtors, who wish to learn more about self-directed retirement plans and the real estate investing opportunities the accounts present.
Participants can expect to learn:
• How the process works
• What steps are involved
• The rules and regulations that govern these transactions
• Other investments permissible in self-directed plans
Both seminars offer credits towards those seeking the designation of self-directed IRA specialist through Advanta IRA University. Advanta U in Florida and in Georgia provide powerful knowledge to professionals (realtors, CPAs, attorneys) that help them better serve existing and potential clients who are investors.
