Not a new possibility for investing but new to many investors is the ability to use an IRA fund as the Investment Tool for Real Estate. Using a Self Directed IRA for Real Estate expands your possibilities and probably your investment income for retirement.
Earning more from appreciation and rental income into your IRA than your are with mutual funds is a big possibility. There are alot of resources for information about IRA Investment into Real Estate.
I have studied Self Directed IRAs and IRA LLC checking accounts and love to share that information with clients that have IRAs that can benefit them as a source for investment.
