You probably know that an IRA is a great way to save for the future. You may even be making contributions to one set up through your work. But did you also know that an IRA can serve as a great investment vehicle? Investors use IRAs to hold a variety of assets, but many don’t know that you can invest in real estate with an IRA too. A self-directed IRA provides a lot of flexibility for real estate investing.
This episode is a special one for Invest Florida. We’ll be covering the many ways to invest in real estate with an IRA in front of our first-ever LIVE audience!

Scott Maurer joined Advanta out of college. He has since become the Director of Business Development and regularly educates investors on the many advantages to investing through self-directed IRAs.
Dave Shaw is a real estate appraiser-turned investor who uses his self-direct IRA as a lending vehicle.
