Self-directed IRA to Buy Probate Properties


Today I want to talk about a little known strategy for buying probate properties, and that is using your self-direct IRA to buy probate properties.  As you probably know, when a property that is part of an estate is in probate, that property must be sold. It must be converted to cash. Once that happens, the assets in the estate will first be used to pay the creditors then the heirs get what’s left. They will finally get what they are inheriting.


Do you think this turns ordinary sellers into motivated sellers?  You bet it does.

Real estate investors often don’t know how to come up with the cash to close on these properties.  In my state, wholesalers can do a double closing (or simultaneous closing) using your end buyer’s funds, but that’s not the case in every state.  Other times, the investor will just assign contact. Either one of these strategies works well for a wholesaler.


What if you Must Actually Close on the Property?

If you are a rehabber or a buy and hold landlord, you’re going to have to close on the deal which means you need cash. Using your self-directed IRA is one of the ways you can do that.  And, if you have a Roth Self-Directed IRA, your profits can flow back into your IRA tax-free forever.  Think about that for just a minute. This is one of the secrets to building wealth in record time if you are a real estate investor.
