About 98% of the people that come to me are not aware that they can invest in real estate from their RIA or 401k. Investing with your IRA or 401k brings enormous tax advantages, and therefore growth advantages, but there is quite a bit you need to know before you get started.
This episode is part 2 of my interview with Attorney, Accountant, and Real Estate Investor John Hyre. In this episode, John covers a few advantages and disadvantages of various retirement investing plans and the pitfalls of prohibited transactions which can easily blow up your IRA and cost you 50%-60% of the account value.
John has a course on this topic that I have reviewed on my website: http://www.themichaelblank.com/ira. For a limited time, John is offering this course and the live conference footage (discussed in this episode) for only $1,197 (Regular Pricing: $2,391).
