Self-Directed 401ks: Flexibility in Your Retirement Fund

self-directed-401ks

Do you own a small business and would like to benefit from having a 401k retirement plan? Do you like knowing exactly where your retirement money is being invested? Consider self-directed 401ks!

When you work as a paid employee for another company, your employer can automatically enroll you in a 401k plan. These plans often use default funds and rates and have limited flexibility unless they are specifically altered. Although this type of 401k plan may feel simple and hassle-free, it is often not available to certain types of small businesses and might not allow your contributions to grow as much as you want them to.

As a self-employed individual, you have the sole responsibility of putting together your own 401k plan. Although contributions to your 401k plan used to be limited in the past, the Economic Growth and Tax Relief Reconciliation Act of 2001 allowed small businesses to have higher contribution limits. This means that you may be qualified to take advantage of self-directed 401ks that give you total control over where your money goes.

When you choose to open a self-directed 401k, you can specify exactly which types of investments you want to make, and which ones you don’t. For example, would you rather see your retirement money grow in precious metals rather than in mutual funds? Are you interested in investing in tax liens or real estate instead of stocks? With self-directed 401ks you can!

American IRA is a leader in self-directed 401ks, so they can help you feel secure and confident in your retirement fund. Click here for more information on self-directed 401k programs, or call 1-866-7500-IRA(472).

However, when you decide to trust your money with a company who offers self directed IRA services, such as American IRA, you are in the driver’s seat.

A company with self directed IRA services allows you to decide where your money goes and gives you total control over which investments you want to make, and it doesn’t just stop there.

Self-Directed IRA Services: Your Key to a Brand New Nest Egg

Self-Directed IRA ServicesIs your retirement fund feeling a little stale with the same limited portfolio diversification you’ve come to expect over the years? Are stocks and bonds getting old? Are you looking for something a little different?

Self-directed IRA services with American IRA offer a different approach; an alternative way to invest in what you know best! There are many different investment possibilities out there beyond your traditional options. In fact, self-directed IRAs are a fantastic way to put your hard-earned savings to work in various tax-reduced or even tax-free accounts!

Whether you’re interested in real estate investing, starting up an LLC, or mastering tax liens and deeds, self-directed IRA services with American IRA facilitate your investing imagination. There is one “caveat” however: once you start with self-directed IRAs, it’s hard to go back to traditional accounts!

Fortunately, a self-directed IRA is more about the possibilities than the restrictions. For example, you can invest in gold, act as a private lender, or rent out a property by implementing a buy and hold real estate strategy to name just a few more options at your fingertips. While the IRS does specify certain rules on what you can’t invest in, this is a very limited list.

Have you ever wondered if you could somehow tie an education savings account to your IRA? Self-directed IRA services once again unlock even this capability. If you want to embrace the future of IRA investing, contact us and we’ll be happy to provide you with more information!

If you have any questions about opening a new account, contact us at 1-866-7500-IRA(472) or info@americanira.com. If you’d like to transfer your existing portfolio, contact us at 1-866-7500-IRA(472) or transactions@americanira.comClick here for more information on both topics.

Tax Lien Investing and Tax Sales – The Government Collects for You!

The government collects lots of taxes from you, but did you know they will also collect profits for you? With tax lien investing, that is exactly what happens! Your self directed IRA purchases a tax lien and sits back while the local tax collector collects the profits on your self directed IRA’s behalf.

Benefits of Tax lien Investing

Many investors enjoy purchasing tax liens and collecting the higher than normal interest rates. Investors also enjoy the possibility that the property owner might not redeem the property which means, in many states, that the investor becomes the owner of the property by foreclosing on the first position tax lien. In most states, tax liens are in first position even if there is a first mortgage or deed of trust currently on the property.

What About Foreclosures?

Investors enjoy the creativity of tax liens as, in the case of foreclosure, they can decide whether to sell the property for a profit and/or hold the property and enjoy the income generated by the rent they collect.

Experts Needed

Remember, in all cases, it is good to consults with professionals. In this case, it would be a good idea to consult with a realtor and/or appraiser to assess the value of the property prior to bidding on its tax lien. It is also advisable to consult with your attorney to make sure you have a full understanding of the tax lien law in the state you plan to purchase tax liens in. Remember, tax lien investing is a lot like purchasing a piece of real estate: check the location, the current market value, and make sure you have an exit strategy.

American IRA, a National Provider of Self-Directed Real Estate IRAs, Celebrates the Success of Yet Another Client on a ‘Fix and Flip’ Real Estate Purchase

American IRA, a national provider of self-directed real estate IRAs, celebrates the success of yet another client on a ‘Fix and Flip’ real estate purchase! This ‘Fix and Flip’ netted the client’s real estate IRA $28,500 in just six months.

The client used their real estate IRA to purchase the property for $50,000. In this case, the property needed about $15,000 in work. It wasn’t a huge rehab project but certainly one that many of the people reading this article have done themselves. Also keep in mind, once again, the holding costs. In this case, it was $1,500. HOAs, taxes, insurance and things of that nature are included in that number.

After 6 months, the client sold the property for $95,000. Once again their real estate IRA owns the asset, so depending upon the account the gains are going to be tax free or tax deferred. The property sold price was $95,000, the purchase price was $50,000, rehab costs were $15,000, and the holding costs were $1,500. The total profit was $28,500 ($95,000-$50,000-$15,000-$1,500=$28,500).

What a fantastic outcome: $28,500 in just six months!

Some words of caution:

People need to make sure that they are not exhausting all of the money from their real estate IRA when making a purchase. They need to have a substantial amount left over for any sort of incidental costs.

Also they need to keep in mind that their real estate IRA owns the asset, so all the cash flows in and out of their real estate IRA. When they’re paying the contractor for the work that’s done on the property, they’re going to instruct the American IRA, LLC office to actually cut that check from their real estate IRA to whatever appropriate parties for the acquisition.

The American IRA, LLC team can’t stress this enough. Do not cut it this close. The American IRA, LLC office probably gets two calls a week from a client panicked because they bought too much house, they don’t have enough money in the account, and at the end of the day the only option they really have is to make that contribution for the year to cover that balance.

As is always the case, the account holder needs to do the ‘due diligence’ on the asset that they’re purchasing.
