How Our Client Used Her SHIRA™’s As Real Estate Investing Machines

Let me tell you about how our client has used her two SAFE HARBOR®-Directed IRA’s™ (SHIRA™) to help buy two properties and qualify for a loan when she ran into problems with debt to income ratio.

Lizzy had been interested in using her IRA to purchase real estate before, but wasn’t satisfied with the Self Directed option because of the many prohibited transactions that come with it, the most important prohibited transaction being that she and her family couldn’t personally use the real estate. 

She discovered us through an airline magazine.  Lizzy was skeptical because she had been told that personally using real estate purchased with an IRA wasn’t possible, so she had her trusted CPA give us a call to learn more. After speaking to Lizzy’s CPA, he was impressed and found our IRA Real Estate to Occupy strategy to be valuable and the right solution for Lizzy’s IRA investment wishes. 

By setting up two SHIRA™’s, Lizzy has been able to direct her retirement funds to help support the purchase of two houses (one in California and the other in Utah) that she and her husband could personally use and enjoy.  And just two years ago, we restructured one of her SHIRA™’s to help her qualify for the debt to income ratio on an equity loan!  Because our program offers flexibility and control, Lizzy was able to structure her SHIRA(™s) with her wants and needs in real time and as they were evolving. 

Not only has Lizzy been able to use her SHIRA™ to create wealth through real estate that she can personally use and take advantage of the real estate tax write-offs, resulting in money saved, she has also enjoyed total peace of mind knowing that her SHIRA™ monies are safe from any downturn in the stock market and with upside potential for when the market does well.

Today, Lizzy is actually looking to expand on her SHIRA™’s and our program.
