Investing in Real Estate Syndications with Your IRA



“Can I invest in a real estate syndication with my IRA?”


The short answer is “Yes.”

“A self-directed IRA provides the opportunity to invest in alternative investments – not just traditional stocks, bonds and mutual funds. Self-directed IRA custodians offer a variety of investments for retirement accounts, including real estate […] and both non-publicly and publicly traded securities.” (1)

However, although the procedures involved in making a private investment with your IRA are straightforward, many first-time investors may be confused by the role of custodians and the widely varying fees they chargeThe good news is we can help!

As illustrated below, the custodial fees for a $50,000 private investment held for 5 years in a retirement account could differ by more than a factor of 10 depending on the custodian utilized for the investment. (2)
