Real Estate in a Self Directed IRA

Real Estate in a Self Directed IRA

Under IRS rules, an IRA may purchase real estate and preserve its tax favored (deferred) status. An IRA can purchase residential real estate, commercial real estate, vacant land, an option to buy land, or farming/agricultural land, among other types of real estate assets. The IRA must be a self directed account, and can generate returns from rental income, price appreciation from a buy and hold strategy or the profits generated from a strategy of purchasing properties, renovating and then selling the property for a short-term profit (“flipping”).
