Absolutely. While probably no more than 3% of retirement accounts are invested into non-traditional investments such as real estate, that is changing. It is important to remember that when an IRA LLC or 401(k) or 401(k) LLC invests into the property, the property is titled in the name of the retirement plan (and, possibly, LLC), never in your personal name.
More and more individuals are becoming more and more frustrated with the options offered by their current custodians. Further, even if you enjoy your current investment options, most people would agree that it makes sense to a single retirement plan where they can combine their retirement plan accounts (if possible) and have one account where they can invest into both traditional AND non-traditional investments.
Within the broad category or Real Estate there are many options for investment:
- Residential Rentals
- Commercial Properties
- Mobile Homes
- Raw Land
- Real Estate in Foreign Countries
- Trust Deeds / Mortgages, and Mortgage Pools
