Investing in Multifamily Real Estate Using a Self-Directed IRA

Monday, June 19, 2023

Investing with a self-directed IRA offers many potential benefits. First, it allows you to diversify your portfolio by investing in non-traditional assets including real estate. Second, it gives you greater control over investments since you are the one making decisions about how and where your money is invested. Finally, when done correctly, investing with a self-directed IRA can provide tax advantages that make it more attractive than investing outside of your retirement account.

Now that you’ve learned the benefits of investing with a self-directed IRA, let’s get you started with setting up your account:

1. Set up a self-directed IRA

The first step in using a self-directed IRA for investing in multifamily real estate is to set up the IRA account. You'll need to work with a custodian that specializes in self-directed IRA accounts. The custodian will handle the administrative duties associated with the IRA and will be responsible for holding the assets on behalf of the account holder. It's important to choose a reputable custodian with experience in self-directed IRA investing.

2. Transfer funds into the IRA

Once you've set up the self-directed IRA account, you'll need to transfer funds into it. You can transfer funds from an existing IRA account or other retirement account. It's important to note that the funds transferred into the self-directed IRA must be from a tax-advantaged retirement account.

3. Find a multifamily syndicator:

Once you have funds in your self-directed IRA, you can start working with a multifamily syndicator. It’s important to vet the syndicator as if you were giving them your life savings…because you are.

4. Conduct Due Diligence

Once you've identified the right multifamily syndicator and project that meets your investment criteria and have conducted due diligence, you can make the investment using funds from your self-directed IRA. The investment will be made in the name of the IRA, and all income and expenses associated with the property will flow to and from your IRA.

5. Make The Investment

Once you've identified the right multifamily syndicator and project that meets your investment criteria and have conducted due diligence, you can make the investment using funds from your self-directed IRA.

6. Collect Your Money

Now, this is the fun part. Sit back and enjoy your cashflow.
