Using IRAs and 401(k)s to Buy and/or Fund Real Estate Investments

Learn to recognize and capitalize on the trillions of dollars accessible through IRA/401(k) accounts.

The vast majority of IRA and 401(k) accounts are invested exclusively in Wall Street products: stocks, bonds and mutual funds. The account holders typically have no idea that they can invest their tax-advantaged IRA and/or 401(k) monies in alternative assets such as real estate, private loans, private placements, etc.; let alone how they would go about doing so. The same limited outlook often holds true for their current advisors. This topic is designed to provide a road map for IRA and 401(k) investors, together with their legal, tax, financial and real estate professionals, to recognize and capitalize on the trillions of dollars accessible through IRA/401(k) accounts, the full spectrum of alternative asset investment opportunities, the beneficial tax-advantaged strategies and the effective asset protection techniques available for real estate-related investments using fully self-directed IRAs and 401(k)s.

  • You will be able to differentiate the rules related to contributions and distributions
