Benefits of Investing in an IRA

Investors use their self-directed IRA assets to invest in real estate for more than just diversification.

  • Tax-deferred increases in property value

  • Tax-deferred rental or lease income

  • Tax-free investment growth in a Roth IRA

  • Avoiding probate for IRA assets and beneficiaries

  • Ability to roll over high balance accounts from workplace retirement plans

  • Option to purchase 100% ownership or pool with multiple investors to create greater buying power

Once property is owned by the IRA, the IRA must pay all expenses related to the property and receive all related income.
