American IRA recently published a list of five “offbeat” investments investors can hold when using a Self-Directed IRA for retirement.
ASHEVILLE, NC, US, November 11, 2023 /EINPresswire.com/ — Noting that the word “offbeat” doesn’t have to be a bad thing for investors, a recent post at American IRA recently highlighted the key assets investors can hold within a Self-Directed IRA. American IRA, a Self-Directed IRA administration firm based in Asheville, NC, regularly posts updates and information about Self-Directed IRA investing, noting that when investors use this unique retirement strategy, it opens up all sorts of alternatives for retirement investing beyond stocks and bonds.
In the first “offbeat” investment, American IRA highlighted real estate. Real estate is, of course, a relatively straightforward way for people to save for retirement. For example, an investor who holds a piece of property like a single-family home and rents it out can generate mostly passive income. This is one way investors can prepare for retirement because it means that even if a job goes away, the investor still has the income from the real estate investment.
However, the world of real estate is bigger than single family homes. There are all sorts of offbeat investments available within this asset class, from raw land and farmland to multi-unit apartment buildings. And they’re all potential assets within a Self-Directed IRA, which highlights just how versatile these accounts can be.
American IRA also used the post to highlight four other offbeat investments available when holding a Self-Directed IRA, including precious metals, private notes, and tax liens. The post pointed out that investments like private equity, or private stocks, can be powerful ways to invest because they allow for such astounding potential when it comes to returns.
But there’s one caveat for every asset class: with more power comes more responsibility on behalf of the IRA holder.
American IRA reiterates that investors should perform due diligence and research as thoroughly as possible. This is one way that investors can begin to take the “offbeat” path while forging ahead.
