If you’re tired of mutual funds, the stock market, and CDs that pay minimal interest, consider buying an investment property with your IRA or HSA. Real estate in an IRA produces returns with all the tax-advantages of your retirement account
Returns from IRA real estate can take two forms: rental income, and appreciation between the time you buy and the time you sell. So your investments can be producing a steady stream of cash, and be available to sell when the time is right.
Your IRA doesn’t have to have the entire purchase price of a property; the IRA can partner with a person, company/entity, another IRA, or it can secure a non-recourse loan to buy real estate.
There are several benefits of having Real Estate in an IRA. These benefits include:
•Real Estate is a tangible asset and one that understand.
•Investment properties can potentially yield rental return as well as market appreciation.
•You have strategic control over the properties that your retirement account owns.
•You can buy, sell, and exchange properties without tax consequence.
