A real estate IRA is not a special type of an IRA, but is just a common term for a self-directed IRA that holds real estate assets instead of public securities such as, stocks, bonds, and mutual funds.

Invest your IRA in real estate and grow your retirement income by achieving both rental income and value appreciation. A self-directed IRA can buy real estate, enter into partnerships that purchase real estate investments, or issue loans to buyers and secure the loans with property.

In order to maintain a tax-advantaged status, it is important for investors to understand the benefits of investing in real estate, the rules and guidelines associated with these assets, and the types of investments that are allowed within a self-directed IRA.
