Self-directed retirement plans like the Solo 401k give participants several advantages in real estate investing. Also known as the Individual k or Owner-only 401k, the plan was designed for the self-employed and small business owner. As a 401k, the Solo 401k rules are the same as traditional 401k plans while affording additional options to its participants. The self-directed nature of the plan allows investments to be made and directed by the plan participant.
The advantages of the Solo 401k plan make it an attractive option for those interested in investing in real estate. The plan gives participants total or “checkbook” control over its funds; participants can make investments with the simplicity and ease of writing a check. Solo 401k rules also allow for a wide range of investment capabilities. Of these, investing in real estate is of particular interest to many given the current housing market. Custodian consent is not needed with the plan, enabling quick response to real estate investment opportunities. Income and gains from these investments go back to the retirement plan, tax-free.
