American IRA Explains How Investors Can Do Real Estate Due Diligence in a Real Estate IRA

ASHEVILLE, NC / ACCESSWIRE / March 21, 2020 / Investing in real estate can be far different than other types of investments, notes a recent post at American IRA, which highlighted how to perform due diligence for a Real Estate IRA. The post notes that due diligence in real estate can be far different from looking at a stock or a bond, as real estate requires an understanding of local markets and a set of variables completely unique to real estate. In the post, these variables were explained in detail.

American IRA noted in the post that a Real Estate IRA can be a great way for experienced real estate investors to create extra wealth for retirement. Because real estate as an investment can be housed within a Real Estate IRA-another name for a Self-Directed IRA that holds real estate-experienced investors can allow wealth to accumulate in an IRA with the tax protections any other IRA holder would enjoy.

But because real estate is a highly independent form of investing, American IRA recommends that investors know how to perform what’s known as due diligence: researching the local neighborhoods, the location, the local job markets, and other variables that can dramatically impact the future value of a real estate investment. The post explores these variables in greater detail, although American IRA, as a Self-Directed IRA administration firm, cannot give specific investment advice such as which real estate to choose.

“Our role as a Self-Directed IRA administration firm is well defined,” said American IRA CEO Jim Hitt. “There are a lot of different ways that retirement investors can look at real estate. We wanted to make sure that from a broad perspective, investors understand these options. We also want them to know that it’s not all about their options-it’s about how they can identify good real estate investments by doing their homework. But what does that mean, exactly? That’s part of what the post sets out to explain.”
