Don’t FSBO your Financial Plan
Develop an understanding of self-directed IRAs to build your retirement and close more client deals.
Real Estate Agents Retirement Plans + Business Growth StrategyWith a self-directed IRA, your clients can invest in single- and multi-family homes, commercial and rental properties, mortgage notes, international property, land, and more. As their investment options significantly increase, your opportunities to close additional deals increases, too.
You come across the deals first: use your experience to build retirement wealth for yourself. You help secure the future for others. Isn't time you took care of yours?
Whether for yourself or for your clients, the process is the same:
Opening the account:This is done by completing a form online. All that is needed is identification and a form of payment for the $100 fee to establish the account.
Funding the Account:If you have an existing IRA at a financial institution or an old 401(k), you can move them to a self-directed IRA. If you are starting a retirement savings account, you can do so by making a cash contribution to the IRA. This may lower your taxable income.
Purchasing the Property:There are several investment strategies that you can use for small and large IRAs. You can use other people’s money by partnering your IRA with another IRA or with personal funds. You can also get a non-recourse loan or establish an LLC. In fact, you can combine all of these strategies.
However, it's important that you follow the rules. Understanding disqualified persons and prohibited transactions in an IRA will help keep your account compliant.
Open an Account and Lower Your Taxable Income
Don’t wait for a client to tell you about self-directed IRAs. The best way to understand how a self-directed IRA works and how it can help you significantly grow wealth is to open your own SDIRA.
Small business owners can put away more money in a retirement savings plan, taking advantage of the tax benefits associated with these tax-deferred accounts. Some accounts, like SEP IRA and Solo 401(k), have high contribution limits that you can use for real estate investing. The money you save may also be tax deductible.
There are two other types of accounts that are popular with individual investors: Traditional IRA (pre-tax) or a Roth IRA (pay taxes up front).
Book an Event for Your Group
