Residential vs Commercial Real Estate Investing
Commercial real estate and residential property investments are popular assets that are used to build tax-sheltered income in self-directed IRAs.
Both residential and commercial investments have the potential to garner desired returns but are unique in their benefits. Before deciding on which alternative to add to your retirement portfolio, explore the advantages of both.
Residential real estate investments include single and multi-family homes, rehabs, and rental property. Tax liens and deeds can be purchased with self-directed funds. Private mortgages are also a popular asset permissible in these plans.
Commercial real estate investments encompass office space, restaurants, strip malls, and condominiums, and more.
