ASHEVILLE, NC / ACCESSWIRE / July 8, 2019 / For those investors who are wary of the stock market, there's another potential path to retirement success: real estate. Investing in real estate with a Self-Directed IRA is not as difficult as many might portray it, according to a recent post at American IRA. In the post, the Self-Directed IRA administration firm explains the process of getting started with investing in real estate within a retirement account and answers some basic questions about how to proceed.

The post begins by explaining why real estate can be such a fundamental aspect of a retirement investor's portfolio. Because the stock market is consistent over long periods but not necessarily predictable in the short-term, real estate provides a valid hedge for maintaining a lot of value even in the midst of economic downturns and even crises. In addition, using a Self-Directed IRA for real estate can create a more diversified portfolio, which adds stability to the retirement plan and increases peace of mind for investors who are worried about the markets. That confidence does not have a price tag.

The process of investing in real estate through a Self-Directed IRA, as the post notes, can be surprisingly simple. After opening a Self-Directed IRA, the investor will then open a checking account associated with said IRA. The checking account, set up at the investor's bank, is then the platform "through which you then purchase and manage your investment properties." That can even include using non-recourse loans to enhance the ability to grow the overall value of the retirement account.

"Many people do not realize that there's a completely viable, alternative form of investing for retirement available at their fingertips," said Jim Hitt, CEO of American IRA. "We wanted people to know, with this post, that they can easily open up a Self-Directed IRA with the intent of investing in real estate. The process is not scary or intimidating. It's surprisingly simple."
