A Self-Directed Roth IRA can be a powerful tool for building wealth, using taxes up front to fund a retirement with minimal taxes on the back end. But what about a Self-Directed Roth IRA? With self-directing, might investors be able to make even greater use of the Roth IRA’s tax mechanisms and potentially build an enormous nest egg for retirement?

According to a recent post at American IRA, that’s exactly what some investors can do. A Self-Directed Roth IRA comes with a number of benefits for those who invest in real estate, including the ability to grow money within the account tax-free. Putting in after-tax dollars into an account like this means the dollars then grow tax-free with the protections of an IRA. For someone holding a piece of real estate within a Self-Directed Roth IRA, collecting rental income through this vehicle would mean collecting them tax-free, which in turn creates faster returns for just about any real estate investment.

Is there a catch? According to the post, there are more responsibilities for investors who self-direct. And a real estate investment is not a guaranteed vehicle for returns; it takes wise investments and the prudent application of one’s taxable retirement funding to make full use of an arrangement that might include both a Self-Directed Roth IRA and real estate investments.

“We wanted to use this post to introduce people to the idea that a Self-Directed Roth IRA can really mean lots of freedom for tax-free growth,” said Jim Hitt, CEO of American IRA. “When most people think of Roth IRAs they are probably thinking of plug-and-use funds. You buy the same fund over and over until you retire. But with self-direction, there are plenty of opportunities for growth. And with the tax protections of a Self-Directed Roth IRA, that growth becomes even more substantial.”
