Will Stocks or Real Estate Make Better Returns Over the Next 10 Years?

Knowing what type of investments will perform best over the next decade can make all the difference between enjoying an amazing retirement or struggling to pay your bills after you stop working.

Why a Self Directed IRA Account is Better Than a 401(k)

Your investment advisor probably won’t tell you this (because it doesn’t pay a commission), but buying real estate with an IRA account – specifically a Self-Directed IRA – can easily beat the return on investment of a typical 401(k) or traditional retirement account. If you’re like most investors, you probably contribute money religiously to your current 401(k) or IRA, but have a hard time really quantifying the return on investment over time, due to complicated fees, commissions, etc.

Understanding Self-Directed IRA & 401(k) Beneficiary Rules

Investors with a 401(k) or IRA account might not be able to control stock market performance, but there are definitely other things that are totally within their realm of influence, including some of the most basic aspects of account management, like naming beneficiaries and handling rollovers when you retire or switch employers. While this might sound simple enough on the surface, many investors wind up unknowingly disinheriting their loved ones, or leaving investments in a stagnant 401(k) that is heavily invested in low-performing stocks and bonds.

Your 401k Will Suffer Over the Next 10 Years

Many people are considering buying a second or vacation home in Mexico and only want to spend a few weeks or part of the year in it. The financial opportunity exists to make enough rental income to cover the property's costs. A purely hands-off vacation home rental that doubles as an income producing investment property is extremely desirable.
