“You can’t negotiate fact”
Tired of watching the high rollers hit the real estate jackpot? Just because you’re cash poor doesn’t mean you can’t play the game. In fact, your own Individual Retirement Account, invested in real estate, can potentially build wealth for your retirement faster than the most lucrative investments on Wall Street. Because the income and gains flow back into your IRA tax-free, even a small IRA, structured as a selfdirected IRA LLC, can unlock the door to a sizable real estate portfolio.
If your IRA isn’t large enough to purchase a bargain basement deal on your own, you don’t have to go it alone. An IRA can partner with other investors, with other IRAs, or even with the IRA holder’s personal funds to purchase an asset. A husband and wife, for example, could pool their IRAs and buy a rental property together, and split the ownership according to the amount each contributed. Two or more people could form a partnership and buy an expensive office building, eachpurchasing fractional shares of the property. In this case, the IRA might purchase fifty percent of the building and the partners would purchase the balance. All income and expenses would then be divided based on the percentage of ownership.
BORROWING MONEY THROUGH YOUR IRA
Perhaps you don’t want to take on partners but need additional capital to purchase a property. If your IRA has at least 30%-40% of the purchase price, it should be able to secure a non-recourse loan for the balance. Because your IRA—not you personally–is the borrower, the lender cannot rely on your personal assets as collateral. In the event of default, the lender’s only recourse would be the property–not you or the balance of your IRA funds. But as long as you’re buying at fire-sale prices and the investment property yields a positive cash flow, your retirement savings could provide a cost-effective bridge to financial independence.
LENDING MONEY THROUGH YOUR IRA
Your IRA can also lend funds to people unable to secure loans through banks and mortgage companies. As the foreclosure rate continues to grow and financing opportunities dwindle, many people are willing to pay interest rates of 10%-15% or more for short-term loans. The majority of these loans are related to real estate, but lots of small business owners are also willing to pay hefty rates to keep their livelihoods afloat until the economy turns around.
SETTING UP THE LLC
Self-directed IRA LLCs offer innovative options for building a retirement nest egg, but make sure you have a good attorney and a reputable custodian to set up your self-directed IRA. Your attorney will establish the LLC, including filing and publication of Articles of Organization, and draft the operating agreement. The operating agreement is a key part of the set-up, and will be required for a custodian to accept your account. This document must contain very specific tax language and management provisions not found in standard LLC operating agreements. Your existing IRA account will be rolled over into a new LLC bank account and you, as manager of the LLC, will then have check-book control to invest in not only real estate, but also tax liens, loans, precious metals, stocks and bonds, businesses, and the list goes on and on. The only investments not considered permissible under the Internal Revenue Code are life insurance and collectibles.
