Self-Directed IRA

"Investing in real estate through your self-directed IRA may be the key to turning those dreams into reality.” Pensco Trust.

Most folks are familiar with Individual Retirement Accounts or IRA’s. Not many IRA participants are aware of Self-Directed IRA’s. As the name implies, A Self-Directed IRA allows you to determine where your monies are invested. And your investments can go beyond traditional stocks, bonds and mutual funds.

A self directed IRA allows for investing in non-publicly traded properties such as real estate.

Most brokerage houses and banks offer self directed IRA’s but usually limit your investments to what is of benefit to them. Penscoe Trust, a leading self-directed IRA custodian explains, “It’s simply a matter of money and business model. Broker dealers are not structured in a way that would allow them to profit from transactions outside of the public stock market.“

Self directed IRA’s doesn’t mean that you have to go it alone. IRS rules demand that a qualified custodian or trustee hold the IRA asset on your behalf. There are several businesses across the country that focus on administering these assets for folks like you.

Self directed IRA’s were designed to put the power and control of your investments in your hands. You decide where your money goes. And with the help of a custodian or administrator you can do just that.

Inner Banks Living has experience with Self-Directed IRA’s. Our purpose is to educate the public to the options available to them when it comes to the purchase of real estate. Although we are not a custodian or trustee, we do work closely with several firms that are.

Give us a call if you would like to explore this option further.
