Self-Directed IRAs

self_directed_ira_653189094Providing for your needs in retirement is a responsibility you cannot ignore.  These accounts are protected from creditors and allow you to compound the dollars within these accounts, tax-free.

In our fast paced society it’s important to visualize the retirement you want and the assets you require to have the lifestyle you desire.

It’s important to realize that assets need to convert to a monthly cash flow to provide for your expenses.

That’s why we like self-directed IRAs that allow you to make investments in assets like free and clear houses that can provide a predictable cash flow.

An exercise that I’ve used over and over is how many houses do I need to provide for my retirement?  Here’s what I did and what you can do:  If a house for $75,000 provides a net of $700 per month and you desire $10,000 a month, how many houses do you need?

It’s simple:

$10,000 / $700 = 14.29 houses

So round it up to 15 houses x $75,000 = $1,125,000

So if you could buy 15 well located houses for $1,125,000 than you will receive approximately $10,000 net each month.

Does that work for you?

Look at what your monthly income goals are and do the math for yourself.
