Make your hard-earned retirement money work for you. Gain potential tax advantages by investing in commercial real estate through your retirement account.
Commercial real estate can serve as a low-correlated diversifier to a traditional stock and bond retirement portfolio. Given it’s historical performance as a higher-risk, higher-yield asset class. And if you’re investing in a qualified tax-sheltered retirement account, you can enjoy potential tax advantages as well.
While it is possible to invest in a Real Estate Investment Trust (REIT) in an Individual Retirement Account (IRA) from an online brokerage account, you may not have insight into the specific properties you’re investing in.
In reality, you’re at the mercy of a fund manager’s discretion. So whatever property classes in whatever regions they feel like investing, that’s what you’re getting.
You can use retirement funds from your Self-Directed IRA (SDIRA) to invest in the properties where you want to put your hard-earned money.
You can be more proactive with your retirement portfolio over traditional methods such as Real Estate Investment Trusts (REITs), where you don’t necessarily have insight into the specific properties or geographies you’re investing in, and you’re at the mercy of a fund manager’s discretion.
