Cash Flow Real Estate in Your IRA? You Betcha!

The folks on TV talk a lot about the importance of funding your IRA – and they’re always on about investing in stocks, bonds and mutual funds. Some of the more conservative pundits also mention annuities and CDs. But what if you’re not thrilled with the prospects for return in any of these assets?

After all, interest rates are still near record lows all along the length of the yield curve, and bonds may well not even keep up with inflation. Stocks, as an asset class, are limited by a slow outlook for growth – and stock dividends are nowhere near what they were a generation ago. Mutual funds? Well, you can’t get blood out of a stone. Fund returns are limited by the opportunities in the asset classes from which they come.

One option that is less well-known is this: Investing in real estate within your IRA. The tax code doesn’t restrict you to stocks, bonds, annuities and CDs in your IRA or any other retirement fund. In fact, with just a few restrictions on investing in life insurance, jewelry, gemstones, collectibles and certain forms of precious metals, you can take advantage of tax deferral in an IRA to invest in almost anything you can imagine.

Waffle House CoffeeEarlier this week, I met with a seller.  Over the past two years, we’ve probably gotten together four or five times.  He has a rental property he wants to sell.  Problem is, his asking price is too high for me. 

This time when he called, I said, “Let’s meet at Waffle House, get a cup of coffee and talk.”  He said, “Don’t you want to see the house?”  “No, I already know what it looks like.  I drive by it all the time,” I answered.

Here’s an interesting question for the real estate investors out there: When a seller or realtor calls you about a property for sale, what’s the MOST important thing you need to see? Read More→

Pete YoungsOn August 18th, 2011, we did a special “training opportunity” webcast with “Mr. Rehab” Pete Youngs.  Pete talked about how he got started in the business and how is business has evolved over the past 30 years, especially over the past few years in our weak economy and trouble real estate market. Pete talked about how he buys houses at 50 cents on the dollar or less, how he makes offers to banks on foreclosed properties, how he uses mold and lead-based paint tests to justify his offers and more.

Housing Market Ups & Downs“Down” and “depressed” – according to the news, that’s the real estate market these days. And thanks to continuing tight credit and sluggish job growth, the United States isn’t likely to see anything like a booming real estate market for many years. But although reports about today’s real estate market sound grim, here’s something you probably haven’t heard: there’s no such thing as a “bad” real estate market. Let’s take a look at some of the patterns the real estate market can fall into, who is hurt by them and who stands to benefit. Read More→

Russ HinerWholesaling is a great strategy for making quick cash, low risk, without the use of your credit, income, or money when done correctly. Wholesaling real estate is among the most popular investment strategies because anyone can do it — you don’t need a real estate license or a lot of money to start. And once you start, it’s nearly impossible to keep the money from pouring into your bank account.

This is the Atlanta REIA Wholesale 401 Workshop taught by Russ Hiner. We will teach you the 2011 wholesale strategies you need to succeed. There is no need for you to have money out of your pocket or credit, you do no repairs or work yourself and they are usually done in a few days or weeks.

We will take you step by step through the entire process of how to Wholesale real estate. All applicable forms and agreements with filled out examples are included.

The best part about wholesaling properties is that you don’t get bogged down with tenants, toilets, or holding costs. It’s all about finding a motivated seller, then selling them to motivated buyers for instant profit and moving on to the next big score. Find out how to get in on the action before it’s too late… register today!

Doug ShaddixAtlanta REIA is pleased to announce that Attorney Doug Shaddix will be our special guest speaker at our Atlanta REIA West Meeting on Monday, May23rd at 6:30 PM at the Marietta Fish Market located at 3185 Canton Road in Marietta, GA. Many of you recall that Doug was on our Attorney Panel at our Atlanta REIA Main Meeting. Doug is back this month to talk all about asset protection, estate planning and buying with entities such as trusts, LLCs, corporations and more!

If you have significant assets of any type, you are a target for a lawsuit!  You need to know more about asset protection.  Enjoy greater privacy, limits on your personal liability, as well as tax benefits through the use of entities such as LLC’s, corporations and trusts.

In today’s litigious society, you need only one person unhappy with your business, one injured tenant, one disgruntled individual to ruin all that you have worked for by going to a plaintiff’s lawyer to see how they can get to everything you own.  If you are sued, you could lose your business, its equipment and vehicles, your personal automobiles, your home, your rental properties . . . anything that you own in your own name.

Once in a Generation Opportunity Recently, while having lunch, I bumped into a realtor friend.  She asked how things were going.  Then, leaning forward, asked, “Are you and Kim going to survive this terrible real estate market?”  It’s funny how many times we’ve been asked this question.

Folks, Jack Miller– one of my primary real estate investing teachers (God rest his wise soul) – said it best: “This is a once-in-a-generation opportunity!”  By this, he means that there has never been a better time to buy investment real estate.

Think about it.  When was the last time you saw (1) So many homes sitting unsold on the market; (2) So few buyers looking for homes; (3) Home prices this low; (4) Interest rates this low; (5) Sellers this motivated; (6) Banks with so many properties in inventory; (7) This many foreclosures each month, and (8) Lenders so eager to agree to a Short Sale?  The simple answer is – NEVER!!!
