Purchase Real Estate with a Self Directed IRA or Solo 401(k)
It’s a little-known fact that people can purchase Real Estate with retirement funds. When using a Self-Directed IRA LLC or Solo 401(k) for investments in real estate, your profits are tax-deferred back into your retirement account. Additionally, if you have full checkbook control over your Self-Directed IRA LLC or Solo 401(k), you can make the purchase on the spot as fast as you can write a check. In the case of a Self-Directed Roth IRA LLC, your gains are tax-free, and you can take personal ownership of the property tax-free at the age of 59 1/2.
The purchase of Real Estate in today’s marketplace is a surprisingly advantageous investment for a Self-Directed IRA LLC or Solo 401(k). The best deals are typically foreclosures, short sales and estate sales. These characteristics make a perfect investment climate for individuals with full checkbook control of an IRA Financial Group IRA LLC or Solo 401(k). In fact, the use of a Self-Directed IRA LLC is one of the most tax efficient ways to finance your real estate purchase.
The Solo 401(k) Plan offers a highly attractive loan feature allowing for the purchase of real estate. Under the Solo 401(k) Plan, a participant can borrow up to either $50,000 or 50% of their account value – whichever is less.
