The Self-Directed IRA/401(k) for Real Estate
There’s something called a Self-Directed IRA/401(k). They’ve been around for a while… and in the past several years, lots of people have realized that their retirement plans aren’t earning them a darn thing (sometimes even losing money). So, those people (maybe this is you) have started to look for other ways to earn better returns with that same retirement funds.
Enter the “self-directed accounts”.
A self-directed account is simple. It’s a retirement account that has the same tax benefits as a normal IRA/401(k)… but, you have more flexibility in deciding what you want your account to be invested in.
