Using a Self Direct IRA to Fund a Real Estate Holding LLC

2 Replies

Does anyone have resources on best practices for using a Self Directed IRA to fund a Real Estate Holding LLC?

I am interested in using the funds in my self directed IRA (& possibly those of a few close friends) as seed capital for purchasing rental properties through a real estate holding LLC.

Thanks in advance!

Hey Darnell there's a few IRA wonks on these forums. One that I've found very helpful is @Dmitriy Fomichenko

My limited understanding of this is something called a 'checkbook' IRA if my memory serves. Certainly a lot of the compliance standards for a self directed IRA limits one's ability to operate in the same way for real estate, outside of the IRA.
