4 Reasons Why You Should Invest In Real Estate

Aug 13, 2008
A recent book titled: "Boomers-Bank Financial Intelligence for Real Estate Investing" explains clearly why you should invest in real estate using your retirement plan? In the book, the author discusses several concepts for buying real estate using IRAs and 401(k)s; the so called nontraditional investments.

In this article, I am going to take a look at four of the top reasons outlined in the book:

1. Tax Free Income

The book starts by asking what advantage is there to all of this? Why not just let your IRAs and 401(k)s sit around and do whatever it is they've always done? Well, you can secure tax-deferred or tax-free income for one thing. Anytime you have a profit or a gain, either you are not paying taxes on the gains until you start using the money, or if it is in a ROTH IRA, you aren't paying taxes at all.

2. Zero Capital Gains

By having real estate in a retirement plan, you are also avoiding what's known as capital gains every time you sell property.

3. Compounded Interest & Reinvestment Option In Troubled Times

Your money is allowed to accumulate and your interest will compound Moreover, you can put all of the money back into your next deal. However, you've got to bear in mind the current state of the economy. Money doesn't just sit around these days. In most parts of the world, the dollar is losing value at a pretty alarming rate.

The United States is a country at the edge of a financial and economic precipice, owing trillions of dollars to other countries and borrowing money against, well, the value of its existing borrowed money.

The infrastructure of the United States is at present rather unorganized. We aren't producing much and so we're importing more than we're exporting. It's basic mathematics. Notice how the prices of food and gas have been rising recently. That should give you a pretty clear idea of what's going on and what is likely to continue to happen.

4. Strength Of Non-traditional Investment

The main focus of this book, however, is to demonstrate the value of nontraditional investment choices for 401Ks. The goal is not only to introduce you to the reasons why these choices are advantageous, but it is also to explain the particulars of the related processes.

For the sake of helping you confront your financial advisor or accountant, the book discusses the various strategies for undertaking this type of investment. It also takes you through the processes for finding appropriate real estate to undertake the actual investment.

Since the property market can be a bit difficult to navigate, particularly if you're a beginner, you can benefit from the author's wealth of experience and wisdom on the subject that the book represents.
