Use Your IRA to Invest in a Clearwater Beach  Vacation Home

A lot of people recognize that waterfront and beach property prices in Clearwater Beach and surrounding areas are experiencing lower real estate prices than they have  in a awhile.

Are you one of the savvy real estate investors looking to cash in on one of these beach bargains. 5 single family homes have sold on the North end of Clearwater Beach (in Mandalay and Carlouel neighborhoods) this past month. Here is a creative tip on how to use your IRA to buy that property.

Your IRA and Clearwater Beach Real Estate

I am talking about a Self-Directed IRA because it gives you many options for purchasing real estate, and for many people purchasing real estate is their investment vehicle of choice. Professionals believe this is a great time to be thinking about setting up a Self-Directed IRA to purchase Clearwater Beach property because the prices have recently fallen.

Of course, the rules and regulations for investing in real estate with an IRA are complex and you need expert advice from a knowledgable advisor.

Don’t you think now would be a great time to find out how to use a Self-Directed IRA to accomplish your investment goals? Just realize that the way you setup your Self-Directed IRA makes a big difference in how your taxes are handled and thus your profitability.

    Wow- what a great idea Cyndee. I think you left out a name. I would have never thought to use my retirement money to buy my retirement home. It makes such perfect sense! I love coming here to find out things about Florida real estate- and, of course, to see your sunsets. Nothing like them here up north. 🙂

    Ginger 🙂

  3. Self directed IRAs are a hot item now. I can see it being a great investment vehicle, especially with the current low prices of Clearwater condos. I have a plan to set up a self directed IRA to use for financing fixer uppers. Just make sure to get an expert to set one up and follow the rules. Good post Cyndee. A lot of people don’t know about using IRAs in this way. Thanks – Karl
