IRA and Foreclosures

Real Estate Agent with Frank Rubi Real Estate
Just saw a story about IRA's and foreclosures.  You can actually use your IRA to buy a foreclosure and do a lease purchase back to the renter/buyer.  The money is still in an IRA so you can't write off any loses.  You also can't do this for a immediate family member.  The man in the story had bought his friends house and was leasing it back to him until he could get a mortgage and buy it back.  Be careful as you can lose a good friend if things don't work out.

Using your IRA for RE investments is a great tool, but you have to know the tax law to use it well.  You will get awesome apprication n your IRA tax free if you put the cash flow back into your IRA.

I could be a way to make untaxed gains for your IRA. You've go to set it up properly though.
