Holding Land in your Retirement Account

I’ve written about the virtues of holding land in an IRA before, but I ran across an article today while researching the subject that I think does a great job.  It was written by Andrew Waite for Personal Real Estate Investor Magazine last fall.  The article really goes into some detail about methods of utilizing your retirement account funds to hold real estate as one of the assets in your trust.  There is also a method detailed where you can use those funds to own the real estate and be able to use part of the real estate as well.  This “Safe Harbor” method has been tested in court and by IRS audit, according to the article.  Its a great read for anyone interested in this method of investing.  Anyone considering buying timber land, farm land, or other property in Alabama should take a look.    Access the article here:  IRA article
