This book contains some information about investing IRA money, but it is very biased. It does not discuss any negative points. It talks a lot about non-recourse loans (offered by the book writer’s bank). Such loans have very high interest rates, about 2X as much as those on conventional 15-year loans. So it is not worth the efforts. Most of the glowing reviews on the book’s cover are from people working for companies that benefit. This is simply a glorified infomercial.

Excellent book, very well written by a lender who is in the business and understands it. I read the book in 2 nights. The process for establishing an IRA account for real estate investments and other business investments is very well explained. Great if you have an existing 401K or IRA that you would like to transfer into a self directed IRA. I transferred my existing 401K and now the money is in my checking account at my local bank to use to purchase properties by cash or combine with non-recourse lending. I am making much more money on the properties than I was with stocks and money market in my 401K. It works. The author is also assessable to answer questions and assist with obtaining loans.

There is more than one way to plan for retirement and invest
IRA money. Although this is not the way that I typically recommend
for most people, that doesn't make it wrong.

I do have some clients who have used some of their IRA money to
invest in property and the affiliated companies referred to in
the book are very reputable.

For those with the energy, experience and time, this is
a little-known but potentially profitable way to use all or
part of your IRA savings to better prepare for retirement.

The book authors cover all one needs to know if they are
interested in exploring different ways to invest IRA funds.
If readers follow the letter of this book, they will stay
out of trouble with the IRS and have the best chances for
real estate success with IRA savings.

Format: Paperback
An excellent read. Well written and collaborated on by 4 professionals in the business who in my opinion can help expedite the process. I think it is important as well to have someone with a tax background as one of the collaborators. I spoke with Eric Winston, CPA. He is very easy to talk with in addition to being knowledgeable about the financial process from the IRS point of view. As a real estate broker and investment adviser, I know this concept makes "ALL THE SENSE" in the world. I do not advocate completely dislodging from securities markets, however I do advocate sincerely giving an educated look at self-directing your IRA with real estate or other tangible assets which are allowed for potential of higher secured ROI, and if a loan is needed to assist in the acquisition North American Savings Bank is the best source to help. This concept is here to stay. After this past few years of investment scams and after last Sunday's 60 minutes review of the Lehman Brothers scam, America had better consider that it is time to take some CONTROL of their retirement futures and cease and desist depending SOLELY on Wall Street.

This book gives a complete overview of the steps involved in using your IRA to own investment real estate. It was helpful to have details provided by people that are actually in the lending business. Wish that I had read it before paying cash for our first property.

This is a really good book that is written in plain English. It gives excellent examples and definitions as well as rudimentary game plans for IRA investing. Also has an extensive glossary for locating the required services one needs for Custodial IRA's. Highly recommended if you are considering Real Estate investments through your IRA.

When we recently purchased a condo, we wanted to use my IRA to pay for it. I couldn't find anyone or any information to answer my questions. This book answered all the questions I had, from could it be done to actually living in the condo I purchased and more. If you are thinking about investing in or buying real estate using your IRA, I would recommend you read this book first.
