You know that a real estate IRA opens the door to many investment opportunities not available with traditional IRA types, but you may not know exactly how many options you really have. This article will highlight some possible investment opportunities for holders of real estate IRAs. You may consider investing in commercial properties. Hotel development, a billion dollar business, is one such type of investment.
Your major concern should be occupancy and management, because, after all, there is no commerce if the rooms are empty. Years of planning and teams of investors go into the development of any hotel long any renovation or construction work begins, which will give you enough time to determine conclusively whether a particular investment is a good one for you.
Do not be so anxious to make a profit that you jump into this type, or any other type of investment deal without sufficient research and planning. Particularly if you have an interest in the sport, you might consider investing in the development of a golf course.
The key to making money with this type of investment is finding the right location or locations and the right backing. Be sure that you are investing in a course that will appeal to golfers of all skill levels and in turn, bring in tournaments and special events as well as have the capacity to generate premium greens fees. Make sure that the development addresses all of these concerns before you invest in it.

What you pay to the parent company is a franchise fee and a percentage of the profits, meaning that you essentially become a partner in the company.
These fees vary by franchise. Just be sure to research different franchises before you decide to invest. There are many other types of investments that are possible with a Real Estate IRA, including investing in residential properties. As with all types of investments, it is important to choose carefully and consult with your financial advisor. Remember, your IRA is your investment in your retirement and beyond, so think carefully and choose wisely before investing...
