The Real Estate IRA Is No Longer Your Grandma's Retirement Plan
Summary: As the stock market reaches its most volatile levels since the Great
Depression, people are looking for alternative ways to invest their retirement
funds. Many investors are discovering the real estate IRA as a alternative way to
invest their money as the real estate market at a low now stabilizes in some
Austin, Texas Nov 17, 2009 - With the stock market constantly proving itself to be
unstable, investors are turning to another method of investing for their retirement.
Truly Self Directed (www.IRALLCPartner.com) is a company that is providing
new options for investors by giving them safety from the volatile nature of today's
While some critics of this type of plan have stated that the market always
bounces back, the current recovery is seen as a reaction to the government
stimulus plan and, therefore, is not sustainable. Investors are now looking for
alternatives to the market and many of these people believe that real estate IRA
is the way to go.
Josh Moore of Truly Self Directed states that "there has been a significant
increase in the number of real estate IRA deals being done." This bodes well for
the future of this type of investments, "as many people are now choosing this
method over the stock market," Moore adds.
This is a direct backlash from the amount of money that has been lost in the
stock market over the past couple of years. Individuals have been forced to work
well beyond their perceived retirement date because their retirement funds have
In some cases, these individuals have seen their funds decrease by 50% in a
very short span, which "rarely happens around the median home priced real
estate market. People need a place to live no matter what is happening on Wall
Street. Even though the real estate market did go through some short term
problems, it has rebounded in many parts of the country and has truly stabilized,"
The Real estate IRA is meant to help people take control of their own destinies
by giving them some control over where their personal investments are placed.
"The days of relying on a big company or a large government pension is no
longer a sustainable strategy for retirees because these programs seem to
always receive cuts, especially during a recessionary period. It is wise therefore
for every investor to evaluate their investment strategy and take personal
responsibility for their own retirement plan," says Moore.
"In addition, we are starting to see a trend where younger investors are asking
about the Real Estate IRA at our company," states Moore.
The trend maybe increasing for a number of reasons:
1. Investors are seeking to truly diversify.
2. Many want control over where their retirement funds are invested.
3. Many realize homes will always be in demand.
4. Thirty and forty somethings realize there is not going to be a safety net for
them like Social Security so they must take the initiative now or face a
substandard lifestyle during their retirement years.
"Simply put, many wonder with the current state of the economy and the loses
suffered over the past year whether they will be able to retire," concludes Moore.
