5 Secrets Every Real Estate Investor Should Know to Build Wealth

by Yvonne Garcia, CMO on (July 2, 2020)

Imagine— a future where your retirement is secured by physical property. A future where you know that no matter what the stock market looks like, there is a tangible asset you can rely on. Investing in real estate is a popular strategy for many of those reasons. Unlike stocks, bonds, and mutual funds, it’s something you can touch, something you can feel, something you can drive up to and say, “I own that piece of property.” Most investors use personal funds or loans to buy real estate, and aren’t aware that you can make the same type of investment with your retirement savings. With the housing market rising steadily at 5-6% on average per-year since the 2008 market crash (according to the Case-Shiller Index), it’s no wonder more and more investors are looking at real estate to ground their retirement portfolios.

by IRAR Trust Company on (June 13, 2020)

Many of you have been humming along at your jobs, contributing to employer-sponsored retirement plans and happy with that. But not all plans are equal and not all employers match your contributions. Some plans are great: You contribute up to the max allowable to bulk up your retirement and create a better quality of life when you are ready to hang it up. Others may not have such a great retirement plan, but you don't know any better and you don't have an investment professional proposing other options.

5 Reasons Every REALTOR® Should Have a Self-Directed IRA

by Yvonne Garcia, CMO on (May 27, 2020)

Self-Directed IRAs (SDIRAs) come with a lot of benefits, if you follow the rules and conduct due diligence on your investments. Real estate professionals are well-poised to take advantage of these benefits. Their real estate knowledge, experience, and access to good deals can be leveraged to reap the benefits of SDIRAs. But most aren’t taking advantage of the opportunity to build retirement wealth and grow their business at the same time.

How to Rollover Your Old 401(k) to Invest in Real Estate

by Jason Craig, President on (April 14, 2020)

If you have changed jobs or retired and have left savings in a former employer's retirement plan (e.g. 401(k), 403(b), governmental 457 (b)), you can move these funds to a self-directed IRA and invest in real estate without loss or penalty. Real estate investments in self-directed IRAs grow tax-deferred or tax-free until withdrawal. This means that when your property generates income or is sold, these profits are not taxed at the time because they go back to the IRA. It is not until you start taking distributions at retirement that the income will be taxed, depending on the type of plan you have.

Don't Fall For The Wrong Self-Directed IRA, Fees Will Break Your Heart!

by Yvonne Garcia, CMO on (February 13, 2020)

During the month of February, there’s a lot of focus on love, hearts, friendship, and— yes, self-directed IRAs. Besides googling what to buy your significant other, everyone’s researching how to open an account to get that tax break before April 15th rolls around or how to transfer their account to save on high fees. As a marketer, I’m always curious what people are looking for during holidays and national events— they influence people in ways you wouldn’t expect. It’s interesting to see what influences search trends, but what does this have to do with self-directed IRAs and fees?

5 Examples of Prohibited Transactions in a Self-Directed IRA

by IRAR Trust Company on (December 27, 2019)

You’ve got a lot of freedom with a self-directed IRA, but you do have a few rules you need to follow. Investing in real estate with your self-directed IRA is a lot like investing in real estate outside of your IRA— except the IRS prohibits a few things (per IRC Section 4975). These investment rules are really the biggest differences between IRA investing and the traditional real estate purchase— aside from the incredible tax benefits.

How to Take a Distribution or RMD from your Real Estate IRA

by IRAR Trust Company on (November 16, 2019)

Investing in real estate is one of the most popular strategies for IRA Investors. Because of the tax-advantages of rental income, more and more investors are looking to plant their money in physical property. However, once you reach 70 ½ you may be subject to Required Minimum Distributions, or perhaps you have plans for the property in your IRA. To get the property into your name instead of the name of the IRA, you will have to distribute the property— and pay the associated taxes, which often isn’t feasible in one lump sum. We sat down with our experienced Real Estate IRA Experts to get a step-by-step breakdown of this process, as well as some tips to help you best plan your retirement strategy.
