Estimated reading time: 2 minutes(Last Updated On: January 14, 2020)

Your Self-Directed IRA is a powerful tool that provides you with flexible investment options in a variety of assets. Your retirement savings can go into investing in several types of companies. These companies may be limited liability companies, joint ventures, LPs, and more. And this also includes the ability to invest in commercial property.

Traditional real estate investing can be burdensome.

You can always try to buy real estate on your own using the traditional method of coming up with a deposit and getting a loan. However, this comes with headaches and obstacles such as getting approved for a mortgage, managing the property, maintenance, and ensuring that the rents come in. Though some investors choose to go down this route, you have more options and flexibility with a Self-Directed IRA.

With a Self-Directed IRA, you can invest in commercial property without the headaches, so you can bring in multiple income streams and achieve wealth accumulation. Of course, all this needs to be done right with the right amount of knowledge, so you are able to own assets properly and cultivate a successful portfolio. As with any type of investment, there are always risks involved. If you are not careful and are unsure of what you are doing, you run the risk of losing money no matter what type of asset you choose to purchase with your Self-Directed IRA. There are rules in investing: these can include limitations relating to disqualified persons and an Unrelated Business Income Tax (UBIT). As an investor, you will need to be aware of these rules and stipulations to avoid running into trouble.

Getting the right knowledge helps you stay out of trouble.
