Successful investor and possibility thinker who knew there had to be a better way.
Rolled over former employer 401K into Self-Directed IRA for investments in Real Estate. (aka Real Estate IRA).
Seems complicated but it's not brain surgery. You just need to follow simple IRS rules.
While stocks lost over 40% in 2008, my Real Estate value has held steady or slightly increased during the downturn.
Oh did I mention my properties cash flow right back into my IRA?
No more excuses folks: Yes you can! Yes you do have sources of funds you didn't think you did! and Yes there are ways to get loans as high as 70% LTV on deals if so you can leverage the purchase.
