Self-directed retirement plans are allowed to hold many different types of real estate as assets. Rentals are one way investors choose to build retirement income.
How it Works
- Rental investment options include single and multi-family homes, condos, townhomes, commercial, and offshore property.
- Returns on investments are made through the cost charges for rent and are deposited directly into the IRA.
- All expenses must be paid with funds from the retirement plan.
- Repairs, maintenance, and property management must be performed by third parties.
- Due diligence must be performed by the IRA owner. This includes investigating the property and surrounding area to ensure it’s viable rental income producing property.
- You are able to partner your IRA’s funds with personal funds, or with another person or IRA to acquire more lucrative rental investments.
- One caveat is the fact that you can earn retirement income over a period of time through rental income, wait for the property value to appreciate over time and then sell it for an additional gain in your IRA.
