I always recommend that everyone should have a Self-Directed IRA account. At the time I am writing this the stock market is at a record high.
The higher the stock market goes, the more important it is to diversify into real estate and other asset classes. If you didn’t know a Self-Directed Real IRA provides important tax advantages, while still preserving the diversification benefit, income, long-term capital appreciation and access to leverage that real estate investing historically provides.
Asset protection: While any given stock on Wall Street can become worthless almost overnight.
A house and land has tangible value that, absent a eruption by a volcano, almost never goes to zero. People will always need a place to live, businesses will always need a place to operate. And that’s true no matter what the stock market does. Even an out and out market crash like seen back in 1929 did not destroy the market for housing – people needed to live somewhere.
And that’s the logic of real estate investing.
********************************* If you are reading my blog for the first time, let me inform you that… My company buys single-family houses and I write this blog weekly which is primarily directed to educate 1 group of individuals:
Individuals who are losing their shirt as a result of the “roller coaster” volatility of the stock market and low paying rate of other traditional investments, i.e. people that are looking for an opportunity that’ll provide a secured place to put their money to get it working for them to earn better than average returns.
However, often times, homeowners that need to sell their house, stop by to take a peek because they are curious and wondering how and/or where we get the funding to purchase houses. And if they stick around long enough, they begin to understand why individuals partner with us to provide the funding which empowers us to be able to purchase real estate on a continual basis. Simple, it’s because we teach them a secured way to earn better rates of return than they are currently earning.
So everybody wins. It’s a WIN-WIN-WIN !!!
