Managing Your Finances

by : ira123

It is now possible to control your retirement investments. You can now determine for yourself what the best investment option is for your retirement funds. By making the decision to setup a self directed IRA you gain complete checkbook control over your IRA. Meaning your IRA funds will be placed into a checking account, so you are ready to invest.

When this process of setting up a self directed IRA is done by yourself it can be extremely daunting, time consuming, and expensive when you pay for lawyers and accountants. Time is also lost money, so the more time you spend on setting up a self directed IRA the more you are spending. A Retirement Account Facilitator should provide you with a "no-hassle" solution for setting up an IRA, which is also known as a checkbook IRA.

The Retirement Account Facilitator should dot every "I" and cross every "t" and they will basically hold your hand through this process. They will save you all of that money with accountants and lawyers.

When they consult with you the Retirement Account Facilitator will advise you on whether to setup your IRA funds into an LLC (Limited Liability Company) or a C-Corporation. Here are a few examples of the types of investment that you would choose in your LLC:

Real Estate - rental and commercial property, raw land, lease options, foreclosures and tax liens.

Financial Paper - business loans, mortgages, factoring and promissory notes.

Stock Market - stocks, mutual funds, futures, bonds.

Setting up your IRA funds under a C-Corporation will allow you to fund your own business.

They will handle all of the difficult paper work associated with setting up these business structures.

After your free consultatoin here is a simple break down of what will happen. Your old IRA, 401(k), SEP, or other retirement account is rolled into a new self directed account. Cash from the self directed IRA is placed into the LLC in exchange for the member units or shares. A checkbook is issued making the funds immediately available. The LLC or C-Corp that you setup is able to make all kinds of investments which often offer higher rates of returns from the typical IRA. These can include real estate, businesses, franchises, tax liens, and more.

Keep in mind that a good Retirement Account Facilitator will guide you step-by-step until the process is completed, and you have checkbook control over your IRA.
