Now that the stock market has hit an all time high and real estate is just starting the most significant recovery since the great depression, a lot of investors are looking to allocate some of their capital to alternative investments such as real estate.
The question is....Can you do this in your IRA?
Technically, yes you can move your IRA funds to a self directed account and then invest in many alternative asset classes such as real estate (see our Blog on some of the advantages at http://reicapitalusa.com/blog/).The big financial institutions that act as custodians for most IRAs generally limit investments to publicly traded stock, bonds, mutual funds and bank CDs. Why? Mainly because that is where they make a huge profit on managing your retirement funds-- regardless whether you have a profit or loss!
So to gain complete control over your IRA fund investments, you’ll first need to move your IRA to one of about two dozen smaller custodians offering self-directed IRAs. Once you have a self directed IRA, you can then begin to place funds into real estate investments which can yeild tremendous returns-- if managed correctly.

Last year Forbes.com published an article titled "Go Rogue With Your IRA" where they described how some IRA holders have found very creative alternatives to investing with their self directed IRA funds classes ranging from private equity and promissory notes to gold, oil and gas and even livestock.
