Does investing your money in a retirement plan seem risky to you? In today’s market, having blind faith in an investor or a mutual fund can feel akin to playing roulette in a casino. However, you do not have to leave your money in the hands of a stranger. Modern investment options are actually more diverse than in the past, and individual retirement accounts can be as unique as their owners.
Self-directed IRAs, one of the best individual retirement accounts, will put you in control of your money. This means you will know exactly where all of your money is going and how it is invested. Some of the best self-directed options include:
- Real Estate IRA: This type of retirement account allows you to purchase real estate for investment purposes. For example, you could purchase a home through your IRA and rent it out, bringing in tax-free and/or tax-deferred rental income.
- Gold IRA: Precious metals never go out of style. When you open a gold IRA, you can purchase bars and bullion in a variety of metals, including gold, silver, platinum or palladium. This can allow you to retain tangible wealth that you can hold on to.
- Solo 401k: This self-directed 401k helps individuals who are self-employed or sole proprietors save money for retirement, while allowing them to stay in control. American IRA will act as your record keeper, making you the trustee to oversee your plan and decide how and when to invest.
- Private IRA Lending: Did you know that you can actually lend out the money in your IRA to help people who are trying to get into a home or start a business? When you have a self-directed IRA, you can make dreams happen for other people, and earn a profit at the same time!
