SELF-DIRECTED IRA FOR REAL ESTATE
For investors ready to manage their own money in a tax-advantaged vehicle, nothing makes
as much sense as a self-directed IRA. A self-directed IRA is an account in which an IRA
owner can select assets for investment purposes (allowable by the IRS) of their choice.
There is no legal distinction between a self-directed IRA and any other type of IRA.
Allowable assets can include, but are not limited to:
Notes and Mortgages
Tax Liens/Tax Deeds
LLC's and LP's
Stocks, Bonds & Mutual Funds
Which Accounts Can Be Self-Directed?
Self-direction is open to the following types of retirement and tax-advantaged savings plans:
401(k) or Individual K
Defined Benefit & Defined Contribution Plans
One of the benefits of investing in what you already know and understand is controlling your
investment returns. The other benefit is watching those gains compound and grow tax-
deferred or tax-free!
