Should a Self Directed Roth IRA with Check Book Control invest in a beach house that rents for $5k month seasonally, or an in-town condo that rents for $1500?

It’s a matter of choice as to which one fits into your retirement plan – for example: The couple buying the beach house with their Roth IRA’s may be planning to take the house as a tax free distribution at retirement. That makes great sense, however the average return on that house by the sea could be as much as 30% less than the $1500 per month condo you rented to the working couple who need a year round dwelling. Worse, gross revenues will be about the same.

The costs associated with vacation rentals average 65% to 75% of revenues, compared to 30% to 40% with a long term rental to that working couple in our example. Obviously, over the long term the best choice is the long term condo rental. With the postive returns, capital appreciation, combined with tax free distributions from a Roth IRA you can avoid the hassel and lower returns of seasonal renting and buy that beach house with your tax free cash!
