It almost sounds too good to be true. The fact that IRA holders can use their retirement funds before retirement age to purchase real estate without incurring penalties or taxes might be news to some. However, increasing numbers of people are discovering the benefits of investing in real estate with their retirement funds.
Ways to Purchase Real Estate with your Self-Directed IRA
A self-directed Individual Retirement Account (IRA) is similar to other IRAs but allows a broader range of investment opportunities, including real estate and grants the owner the right to make the investment decisions and not a brokerage firm. A self-directed IRA needs to be set up with a custodian who is experienced in administering such an account, such as Advanta IRA.
1. Cash Purchase – If you have sufficient funds in your self-directed IRA to cover the entire real estate purchase, including closing costs, taxes, fees and insurance you may make the purchase outright using your self-directed IRA. All ongoing expenses relating to the real estate investment must be paid out of your self-directed IRA. In addition, all income or gains relating to your real estate investment must be returned to your self-directed IRA.
2. Percentage Ownership – You can multiply your buying power by partnering with others. Just because you don’t have enough cash in your IRA does not mean you cannot buy real estate. All income and expenses would be allocated to the parties in relation to their percentage of ownership in the property.
3. Nonrecourse Loan – This option allows the IRA to borrow money to purchase real estate. An IRA can borrow money, but it must receive a nonrecourse loan. This means the IRA holder cannot personally guarantee the loan, only the property will be used as collateral.
4. Checkbook Control – With a slightly different structure, the IRA is set up as a self-directed IRA LLC. An LLC is created for your money to be held and for you to invest at your discretion. A custodian is not required to execute each transaction.
Know the Rules
• Any property purchased by an IRA is owned by the IRA…not an individual.
• Any money used to purchase a property with an IRA must come directly from an IRA, not an individual.
• You cannot be reimbursed by your IRA.
• Any expenses or repairs must be paid directly by the IRA. An IRA custodian can assist with this.
• Any income generated from the property must go back into the IRA.
• Purchases made with an IRA need to be for investment, not personal use.
• The real estate you buy must be an investment property(personal use is prohibited).
• An IRA cannot do business with family members which includes you, a spouse, parents, children, grandparents, grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
• Use of an LLC custodian is required by the IRS since you are unable to personally renovate or actively manage the property yourself.
For those interested in investing retirement funds in real estate, the great news is there is something for just about everyone. The opportunities to invest in real estate right now are incredible…especially when you combine this with the ability to use a self-directed IRA.
We at Absync Realty are uniquely positioned to assist you with this investment strategy. We have personal experience in purchasing, renovating, leasing and selling IRA investment properties. Our property management arm allows you to use this unique and profitable investment strategy without any of the headaches often associated with real estate. We handle everything and ACH the funds directly into your IRA each month.
Give us a call at 239-963-4811. We are anxious to share with you the benefits and personal success stories from self-directed IRA real estate investing.

Nationwide, inventory of foreclosed homes fell 32 percent in July compared to a year ago, which might be a sign that the foreclosure crisis may be coming to an end. According, to CoreLogic’s latest foreclosure report. CoreLogic is a leading residential property information, analytic and services provider.
Florida is still among the five states that had the highest foreclosure inventory along with New Jersey, New York, Connecticut and Maine. However, it was also shared that in July, 949,000 homes were in some stage of foreclosure, which is down from 1.4 million a year ago.
It also shared that in July, there were 49,000 completed foreclosures, down from 65,000 a year ago. Prior to the housing crisis, completed foreclosures were averaging 21,000 a month. This must mean that the number of foreclosures up for sale nationwide is gradually decreasing.
As the housing market continues to recover and improve, banks are starting to clear out their distressed property inventories. Fewer foreclosures flooding the housing market are positive for both borrowers and homeowners as these homes have brought property values down. The fewer that are around, the stronger prices will become.
With the improvement of the housing market and prices rising, this could relieve many households from negative equity. This all sounds like positive news for Southwest Florida!
What are your thoughts?
While home-builder stocks have made great strides in the past year, they have become volatile recently as investors deal with mixed economic housing data and rising mortgage rates. Investors have started to question the housing recovery and interest rates are putting pressure on home-builder stocks. But take a close look at the data, this just might be a great buying opportunity for investors if they can plan long-term and weather the “re-adjustment” period.
As you see, the National Association of Homebuilders (NAHB) reported that sentiment is up and confidence has risen to a seven-year high as the housing market makes a recovery, but the Dow Jones U.S. Home Construction Index is down. This is creating a huge gap between sentiment and performance. Homebuilders’ sentiment and home-builders’ stocks traditionally move in sync with one another. But that is not happening right now.
Homebuilders are enthusiastic. The latest reading of the National Association of Homebuilders (NAHB) sentiment index jumped to 59, its highest reading in almost eight years. Single-family home starts in July were up 15.4% over last year according to the U.S. Census Bureau and building permits were up 12.4% above July 2012. Building permits are traditionally viewed as a gauge for future demand. In fact, builders report they are seeing more and more motivated buyers according to NAHB chairman, Rick Judson.
With all this enthusiasm among homebuilders, you’d think investors would be feeling the same. However, investors are staying clear. Higher interest rates make mortgage loans more expensive, which in turn weakens the demand for new homes. This explains why new home sales in July dropped 13.4%. This is one of the main reasons why home-builder stocks have taken a plunge over the recent weeks. With this news, the outlook looks positive considering new home sales are still up 6.8% from a year ago. Despite concerns over the rising interest rates, the recent dip in home-builder stocks could be considered a good opportunity to tap into them now as homebuilders are geared for continued strong growth and momentum into 2014. Long-term trends in the home-building sector may be promising.
So who’s right, the investors or homebuilders? Are investors’ fears over real estate investments justified or do homebuilders know best? It will be interesting to see what happens. Comment and let us know what you think or contact us at 239-963-4811.
Cash really is king, especially when it comes to buying a home in Southwest Florida. The number of homes bought with cash has rapidly increased over the past few years. Cash deals in Florida comprised 57% of home sales during the month of June, according to RealtyTrac. FHA conforming loans have become more restrictive and expensive and some loans require private mortgage insurance that adds $200 a month to one’s monthly payment.With the rise in interest rates, cash buyers have a huge advantage and don’t need to be concerned with higher interest rates at all. Not everyone has the financial means to pay cash, so many have had to downscale because of the higher cost of financing.
People have been watching the market and are aware that prices are moving up and they want to jump in before prices push even higher. They are pulling the trigger early because it’s only going to get more expensive in the future. A recent survey of the Fort Myers market indicated home prices were up 36% during the second quarter of this year compared to last year, the third largest rebound in the country. If you can pay cash, now is the time to buy. The housing market is slowly but surely moving toward a more normalized pattern and prices are only forecasted to increase.

Both Cape Coral-Fort Myers and Naples saw rising home prices for single-family homes during the second quarter of this year. This increase was so significant that both made the Top 10 list of cities for the fastest rising home prices in the U.S during the second quarter of 2013 compared to 2012.
Why is this statistic important? Well considering the Cape Coral-Fort Myers and Naples areas were hit so hard during the downturn, it’s reassurance that the housing industry in Southwest Florida is on the rebound. A National Association of Realtors survey showed that the Cape Coral-Fort Myers median existing single-family home price was up 36.1% to $177,900 compared to a year earlier and 3rd nationwide. Naples was 7th nationwide, with a 29.3% increase to $346,600. Overall, home prices continue to rise nationally and showed the strongest gain in 7 1/2 years during the second quarter according to the survey.
This continues to be a sellers market in the Cape Coral-Fort Myers and Naples areas as well as nationwide as the inventory of homes decrease. Lawrence Yun, NAR chief economist, said “tight inventory is continuing to drive home prices.” There continue to be more buyers than sellers, and that is placing pressure on home prices, with multiple bids common in some areas of the country,” he said. “Higher interest rates are now causing sales to level out, but the tight supply conditions look to be with us for the balance of the year in most of the country. Areas with tighter supplies generally are seeing the strongest price growth, including markets such as Sacramento, Atlanta, Las Vegas Naples, San Francisco and Los Angeles.”
This news is a positive sign for the housing market and especially the Cape Coral-Fort Myers and Naples area. Homeowners are finally able to sell their homes at a decent price.

Our housing market has shown even more signs of strength and reports indicate this trend is likely to continue. Home prices are on the rise, mortgage rates are increasing, new construction and new home sales are up and inventory levels are the lowest they have been in 7 years. This is certainly refreshing to hear since historically the housing market is one of the best leading indicators for our economy.
Home prices continue to rise and have shown a gain of 12% over the past year according to Scott Grannis, former Chief Economist for Western Asset Management Company. The higher mortgage rates we have been witnessing lately are a positive sign that the housing market is rebounding.
The spike in new construction and new home sales are again another step in the right direction. New home sales in May exceeded expectations (476K vs. 460K) and are up 75% from their lows, states Scott Grannis.
The diminishing level of inventory is causing a strong demand in our housing market. For the past 7 years, inventory levels have been at their highest and now we are faced with a relatively shortage of homes for sale. This is an encouraging sign that our housing market is improving.
We’ve been in an ongoing recovery period for quite some time, but the future of our housing market looks bright. Right now sales are increasing and we anticipate that to continue. If you’d like to search the available inventory in our market, please click HERE or feel free to contact us at 239-963-4811 with any questions.
