 Raw or vacant land— another way many investors chose to diversify their retirement, compounding the flexibility of a self-directed IRA with the flexibility of untapped potential.

Prohibited Transactions in Your Real Estate IRA - Examples and Explanations

by Veronica Alvizar, Real Estate Associate on (May 25, 2018)

Investing in real estate with your self-directed IRA is a lot like traditional real estate, but there are a few big differences. The biggest difference? You’re not allowed to do a few things within a self-directed IRA, according to the IRC Section 4975. The IRS, by banning these situations and investments, known as prohibited transactions, is aiming to prevent you (or you, through your family) from benefiting directly from the IRA— at least until you’ve retired.

Update the Fair Market Value (FMV) of Your Real Estate IRA

by Veronica Alvizar, Real Estate Associate on (May 17, 2018)

Are you transferring, selling, or distributing your self-directed assets? Are you taking your yearly required minimum distribution? Is it December and your IRA custodian is asking for an updated “FMV”?

If so— you’ll need to update the fair market value of your IRA’s assets. It’s a simple process, especially at IRAR, but it must be done annually (and whenever you do a “taxable event”, like a sale or distribution).

Is it Required to Hire a Property Manager for my Self-Directed IRA?

by Veronica Alvizar, Real Estate Associate on (September 1, 2017)

The IRS doesn’t always make itself the easiest to understand. Do you need to hire a property manager for your self-directed IRA rental properties? We hear this from real estate investors all the time (particularly if using a direct purchase strategy to fund their deals). Though you’re not required to hire a property manager, the IRS does have rules about who you can and can’t conduct transactions with. The rules also state that you aren’t allowed do any “sweat equity”, or provide benefits due to your work on the property. Investors have worried that this implies a property manager is required, an added expense not all investors want to deal with. This is not to imply that having a property manager is bad— in fact, a property management company or manager can be a huge benefit to an investor, as long as it fits your investment strategy.

How to Invest in Real Estate using a Non-Recourse Loan

by Veronica Alvizar, Real Estate Associate on (July 28, 2017)

If you don’t have the funds in your IRA to make a real estate investment, one available option is a non-recourse loan. With this process, the borrower is the IRA itself, not the IRA owner. Non-recourse loans are not offered by most banks— though there are some banks and private lenders willing to grant this type of loan.  Due to the uncommon nature of this funding, not every IRA provider, lender, or real estate professional may be familiar with the process.
