Can I Use My IRA To Buy Land?
This is Huntin’ Land, the podcast for landowners and land hunters. If you like to stay up to date on hunting tactics, land management, land values, and land market dynamics, this is the podcast for you.
On this episode, Joe and Clint talk with Carla McEwen of IRA Innovations about what we can and can’t do with our retirement accounts and land Investments to buy land. Carla deep dives into all of the rules, regs, and who is considered a disqualified person. Also, where do you start, and what questions that you should ask an advisor when considering investing your retirement account or self-directed IRA in land.
As a landowner, it is important to know what your land is worth. You may find yourself asking the questions like, “how much is my land worth today,” “how much is my land worth per acre,” “how much is timberland worth,” “what is my farmland worth,” “how much is agricultural land worth,” and other such questions. Many factors go in to determining the value of land and seeking out the wisdom of experts is a great place to find the answers to your questions.
Each week, on the Huntin’ Land Podcast, we will bring in various experts to help provide answers to the important questions landowners have. For this week’s Timber Market Update, we talk to TimberMart South.
