Atlanta, Georgia (PRWEB) May 23, 2014
Self-directed plans provide investors tax-free or tax-deferred income towards retirement. The most important advantage these retirement plans offer account owners is total control in making their own investment decisions. These accounts also provide a large pool of alternative investments such as real estate (including raw land), private loans and mortgages, LLCs, precious metals, foreign exchange, oil and gas opportunities and much more.
One of the most popular investments within self-directed IRAs is real estate, hence the more common term “real estate IRA.” Realtors who are familiar with the benefits self-directed IRAs offer can in turn provide advice to clients who are also investors. Jack Callahan, Managing Partner of Advanta IRA Administration, says, “Realtors with knowledge of real estate IRAs can also cultivate a new client base of investors in addition to their typical clients who are purchasing homes to live in.”
Realtors can gain abundant knowledge when educated in the realm of self-directed IRAs. Advanta IRA Administration holds these classes every month because the demand for this knowledge is becoming more popular. “Advanta IRA has clients who use their IRAs to make investments in other real estate related assets including extending private mortgages, acquiring tax liens and certificates, and purchasing properties to use as rentals in order to build wealth towards retirement,” says Callahan.
Advanta IRA Administration is hosting a three-hour continuing education class at no cost for realtors designed to empower real estate professionals in the knowledge of self-directed IRAs.
