Southfield Business Owners learn about Real Estate IRAs from Retirement Planning Expert

Troy, MI (PressExposure) October 14, 2009 -- Self-Directed IRAs have been around for many years; yet most real estate investors are not aware of this option. A self-directed IRA allows investors to diversify their portfolio with investments you understand and trust.

Retirement planning expert, Michael McGee, recently spoke at a meeting for small business owners in Southfield. “Real estate has a history of being a very good investment; many people are more comfortable with something tangible that produces income and has the potential to appreciate in value,” said McGee.

“A real estate IRA is a self-directed IRA that invests in real estate,” explained McGee. “It is a qualified retirement plan that allows investors to invest in assets other than traditional stocks, bonds or CDs. Types of retirement plans that are eligible to become self-directed include Traditional IRAs, Roth IRAs, SIMPLE IRAs, SEP IRAs and some 401K plans.”

Michael advised the group to work with a professional, attorney, CPA or financial advisor if they are considering a real estate IRA. “Self Directed or Real Estate IRAs open the door to a world of investment opportunities. As the owner of the IRA, you need to be aware of the limitations set by the IRS. The IRS closely scrutinizes real estate IRAs to be sure all rules and guidelines are being followed.” Read Michael’s complete article at
