Self Directed IRAs

Own Phoenix Investment Real Estate within a Self-Directed IRA


Select, purchase, manage and own Chandler real estate for sale, Gilbert homes AZ and Mesa homes for sale within your self directed IRA to let Phoenix investment real estate supercharge your IRA.

Benefits of having Phoenix Real Estate Investment property within your IRA are broader portfolio 1) diversification, 2) an excellent inflation hedge to protect the value of your IRA from the ravages of high inflation, 3) complete control over your real estate investments, 4) the use of leverage to buy multiple properties with little of your own money invested, 5) a tax shelter for rental income and 6) supercharged IRA rate of return well above that of most investments with less risk? Think about owning and managing your Phoenix residential and commercial investment real estate within your IRA?

Watch this video that explains what is a self-directed IRA.

How would you like the freedom to structure your self directed IRA as a ROTH IRA so real estate capital gains are TAX-FREE? You may also be able to qualify for purchase loans to acquire real estate assets and use the power of leverage to expand your real estate portfolio at a time when real estate will never be more affordable than it is now. By organizing an LLC within your Self Directed IRA, you are able to directly manage your Phoenix real estate investments with checkbook control of expenses.

All you need to do is open a self-directed IRA with a company that allows a full range of investment choices including the buy, rent and sale of Phoenix residential and commercial rental property investments located in Chandler, Gilbert, Mesa, Queen Creek, Scottsdale, Phoenix, and Tempe AZ.


Mesa, Gilbert and Chandler investment real estate for sale can be purchased within your self-directed in one of three ways:

ALL CASH purchase with 100% ownership within your IRA
Partnership purchase with another investor with partial ownership within your IRA
Leveraged purchase with cash down payment from your self directed IRA and the balance of the purchase price coming from a non-recourse loan with 100% ownership within your IRA. The investor does not qualify for the loan because there is no personal liability for recovery of losses beyond seizing the property.

The Non-Recourse lending decision is based solely upon the property being rentable and the rent survey that is part of the appraisal. Typically a 30% downpayment is required with 70% LTV loan for a Single Family home and 40% downpayment is required for a condo/flat/townhouse with 60% LTV loan. Multi-unit properties would require 35-40% downpayment, but this will vary based upon the rent survey. A triple net commercial property could generate more income with the downpayment being less than 30%.
