Self-Directed IRA Investment Property

A self-directed IRA can be an excellent option for those who want to diversify their assets beyond traditional stocks, bonds and mutual funds. Diversification through a self-directed Individual Retirement Account (IRA) is one way to accumulate wealth, especially with a shaky stock market often yielding low returns.

Seasoned investors know that investing in real estate through self-directed IRAs allows real property to increase in value over time at a higher rate than many other investments.

While Advantage Real Estate team members are not IRA custodians or third party administrators, they are real estate professionals who specialize in locating and negotiating properties for their clients, including those with self-directed IRAs.

Tax Free (1031) Exchanges

The 1031 Tax Deferred Exchange allows investors to sell one or more appreciated assets -- generally rental or investment real estate -- and defer the capital gains tax payment by acquiring one or more replacement properties. That means a 1031 Tax Deferred Exchange allows you to keep all of your money (or equity) working for you instead of paying about one-third of it back to the IRS in taxes.

There are very specific requirements for real estate sales transactions to qualify for 1031 Tax Deferred Exchange treatment under Section 1031 of the Internal Revenue Code.

Because of the ever-changing IRS rules involved, successfully executing a tax-free exchange during a real-estate transaction can be complicated.
