Strongbrook Presents Unique Retirement Plan at Pittsburgh Real Estate Investors Association Meeting

Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania (PRWEB) April 01, 2013

Last evening’s meeting of the Western Pennsylvania Real Estate Investors Association may have caused a shift in the Pittsburgh real estate market. With over 125 real estate investors in attendance, the Strongbrook retirement seminar was nearly a standing room only event.

Members of the local real estate investing group were joined by other retirement investors from Ohio, New York, and West Virginia, as well as a host of traditional stock market investors. The commonality among the audience was the desire to learn about the unique approach that Strongbrook founder Kevin Clayson was presenting.

It was a coup for the membership of the Western PA REIA to attract a speaker like Mr. Clayson to a regular Tuesday meeting. It is rare that the founder of a company will travel from Utah to Pittsburgh PA, just to give away free stuff, and that is exactly what Kevin Clayson was in town to do.

Real estate investing has always been part of the American dream. Real estate offers several advantages over other forms of investing. For example, real estate is a hedge against inflation, in good time real estate appreciates, in bad times real estate is a vehicle to wealth. Real estate functions like a commodity, in that it can be advantageous in both good and bad economies, with the added advantage that real estate is not consumed as it is used. Real estate provides a constant flow of income to the savvy investor. For these reasons, real estate has created more millionaires than any other investment in American history.

The drawback to real estate investing is that it requires a significant education in the methods of investing to be successful.????Many novice investors lose money because they do not understand the market and how to use leverage, appreciation, depreciation, or any of the other advantages that real property offers.

Strongbrook has a unique model for creating the type of passive income that allows normal Americans to retire without worry in a way that no stock market fund offers. The program combines the advantages of real estate investing, with the done for you investing style of a standard mutual fund.

The disadvantages of stock investments stem from the fact that the investor has no control over the performance of the companies that form the basis of value for the stock price. Anyone who needs an example of this can simply Google companies like Lehman Brothers or Enron. By the time the average investor hears of a problem, they have already lost their entire investment.

Strongbrook offers clients a free, retirement road map, that shows perspective clients how working with Strongbrook can help them reach their retirement goals in a safe, investor controlled manner that does not require the expertise of traditional real estate investing.

Nationally known real estate investor Josh Caldwell of Caldwell Holdings LLC commented that I love the done for you approach, that Strongbrook offers, even a monkey can understand what they are doing. I also love the free retirement game plan, that way you get to see if they are a company that you want to work with before you even spend a penny. Many of the investors in the crowd seemed to agree with Mr. Caldwells assessment of Strongbrook.

IRA Financial Group Introduces Special Real Estate IRA LLC Solution to Flip Homes Tax-free using Retirement Funds

Miami, FL (PRWEB) January 31, 2013

IRA Financial Group, the leading provider of self-directed IRA LLC solutions, introduces the Real Estate IRA, a self-directed retirement solution for buying and selling rental properties tax-free.

The special Real Estate IRA LLC offers one the ability to use his or her retirement funds to make almost any type of investment on their own without requiring the consent of any custodian or person, including real estate. The IRS only describes the type of investments that are prohibited, which are very few.

The IRS has always permitted an IRA to purchase real estate, raw land, or flip homes. With IRA Financial Groups special real estate IRA LLC solution, buying and flipping rental properties is as simple as writing a check and is tax-free, stated Adam Bergman, a tax attorney with the IRA Financial Group. As the manager of your Real Estate IRA LLC, the IRA holder will have control over his or her IRA funds so that flipping a home can be made by simply writing a check, stated Mr. Bergman. One major advantage of buying rental properties with retirement funds is that all rental income generated by the property is tax-deferred until a distribution is taken (Traditional IRA distributions are not required until the IRA owner turns 70 1/2). In the case of a Self-Directed Roth IRA LLC, all gains are tax-free.

Unlike a conventional Self Directed IRA which requires custodian consent and requires high custodian fees, a real estate IRA LLC with Checkbook Control will allow one to buy real estate, including rental properties by simply writing a check. With a traditional custodian controlled self directed IRA, one will have total control to make a real estate purchase, pay for improvements, and then sell the property without ever talking to the IRA custodian. Since all the IRA funds will be held at a local bank in the name of the Real Estate IRA LLC, all one would need to do to engage in a house flipping transaction is write a check straight from the IRA LLC account or simply wire the funds from the Real Estate IRA LLC bank account. With IRA Financial Groups real estate IRA LLC solution, no longer would one need to ask the IRA custodian for permission or have the IRA custodian sign the real estate transaction documents. Instead, with a Checkbook Control IRA, as manager of the IRA LLC, the IRA holder, will be able to buy rental properties simply by writing a check.

The IRA Financial Group was founded by a group of top law firm tax and ERISA lawyers who have worked at some of the largest law firms in the United States, such as White & Case LLP, Dewey & LeBoeuf LLP, and Thelen LLP.

IRA Financial Group is the market’s leading checkbook control Self Directed IRA Facilitator. IRA Financial Group has helped thousands of clients take back control over their retirement funds while gaining the ability to invest in almost any type of investment, including real estate without custodian consent.
