Foreclosure Squeeze Impacting Self-Directed Real Estate IRA Investors

 Stiff new foreclosure rules limiting real estate opportunities for self-directed IRA investors

IRA Financial Group, the leading provider of self-directed real estate IRA solutions announces the findings of a new report which shows self directed IRA investors across the country being impacted by the lack of available real estate inventory due to the recent stricter foreclosure rules. Based on interviews with a number of IRA Financial Group clients across the country, the number of available homes has plunged after state laws have subjected lenders to stiff new foreclosure rules and penalties. According to one IRA Financial Group client, “with banks reluctant to pursue foreclosure actions, many homeowners—including those seriously negligent on their loans—have been allowed to remain in their home.” Accordingly, many of the self-directed IRA clients have reported that there is little on the market at a time when real-estate investors are anxious to tap both cheap prices and low-interest mortgages.”

According to several IRA Financial Group clients, the new stricter foreclosure laws being adopted in many states, such as Florida and Nevada, which were intended to cure foreclosure-processing abuses, has actually backfired. “What has in essence happened is that some owners who are behind on payments aren’t maintaining their homes as banks refrain from eviction proceedings, which has created real estate Inventory shortages,“ stated Adam Bergman, a tax attorney with the IRA Financial Group.
