A Self-Directed IRA is the best investing vehicle in the world in my opinion! But I am slightly biased because I have perfected my personal investing with a several Self-Directed IRA accounts. If you want to build wealth for retirement you can use a self-directed IRA because it is just like any other IRA…and is a tax-advantaged retirement account.
CONTROL Is A Benefit Of A Self-Directed IRA
1. With a self-directed IRA, you can take control of your financial future.
You are in control of all decisions for your account and have the freedom and flexibility to invest in what you know best and how you are most comfortable.
This will be your individual retirement account, so just like any other IRA, a self-directed IRA is not tied to an employer – with limited investment options such as some 401(k)s, 403(b)s, Thrift Savings Plans, pensions, etc.
Self-directed IRAs are unique because they offer the freedom and flexibility to invest in a wider range of assets beyond traditional investment options like stocks, bonds and mutual funds.
Not Limited To The Stock Market
2. With a Self-directed IRA, it allows you to invest beyond the stock market with more investment options.
The main difference between a self-directed retirement account and an IRA or other qualified retirement account at other financial institutions is the increased freedom and flexibility to invest in both alternative and traditional asset classes.
Most people don’t realize they aren’t limited to stocks, bonds and mutual funds and that it’s possible for their IRA to invest in real estate, notes, private equity, precious metals, private stock, and a wide variety of “alternative” investment opportunities as well.
Can You Say Tax-Free?
4. Self-directed IRAs can serve as an untapped source of investment capital with the potential to positively impact communities.
For real estate investors, business owners, and those currently investing in alternative assets outside their IRA – another potential benefit is realizing IRA, 401(k) or other qualified retirement funds (whether your own or others) can be used as an additional source of capital for their business or investment opportunities.
With over $9.2 trillion invested in IRAs across the country, there is an enormous amount of capital available in retirement plans that can be made available to entrepreneurs like myself.
While the primary purpose of a self-directed IRA is to build tax-advantaged wealth for retirement, it may also be possible for the investments to positively impact others.

********************************* 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 bi-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 !!!
