Funding Sources: IRA's, 401k, Trusts
One of the best ways to enhance your retirement portfolio is to set up and use a self-directed IRA, 401k, or form a Trust to invest in real estate secured Trust Deeds. The idea here is to put control back in your hands... if your IRA isn't performing well, your old 401k has taken a hit with the recession, or you have funds that are just sitting there earning little or no interest, in most cases you can convert those funds into an investment account or company that you control. Using these funds to invest in Trust Deeds is a great way to maximize your return without all the typical fees involved with a financial planner. Alternatively, if you have set up a family trust (usually revocable) or are thinking about creating one for a tax advantage, in most cases you can control the trust (as the trustee) and use it as an investment vehicle to get into Trust Deeds.
You'll want to keep in mind there are some very specific rules to the self direction of IRA's, 401k's and Trusts. The best advice I can give you on this subject is to talk to your accountant or an attorney that specializes in real estate. Creating one of these is an area Secure Deeds prefers to refer out to a professional that specializes in this area, and there are several companies that can help you convert retirement funds you already have into a working asset that you can control.
