The Self-Directed IRA was created by the Federal Government in 1974 to enable investors to have flexibility and greater control of their investments.  With a self-directed IRA account you are able to select alternative investments like real estate and commodities.  You are not strictly limited to Wall Street stocks, bonds, ETFs and mutual funds.  

You can diversify your holdings within your self-directed IRA to include residential real estate and commercial real estate.  The process to create a self-directed account is not complicated and the costs are modest.

If you have any questions regarding self-directed IRAs, we can offer assistance and refer you to a self-directed IRA custodian professional.
