  • With a 401k, you pay interest on the loan out of your own pocket and into your own 401k account.
  • The interest on a 401k may be lower than what you could obtain through a commercial lender, line of credit, or a credit card, making the loan payment more affordable.
  • There are generally no qualifying requirements for taking a 401k loan, which can help employees who may not qualify for a commercial loan based on credit history or current financial status.
  • The 401k Loan Application process is generally easier and faster than going through a commercial lender and does not go on your credit report.
  • If you are taking a loan to buy a home, you can have up to 10 years to repay the loan with interest.
5. HOME EQUITY LOAN OR HELOC

    ALL YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT

    Buying land with your IRA

    Did you know that income from land purchased with a self-directed IRA flows back into that retirement account tax-deferred?

    Buying land investments with your IRA diversifies your retirement portfolio and can offer better returns on investments.

    1. IDENTIFY

    Identify your investment property and agree to terms with the seller.

    2. OPEN AN ACCOUNT

    Establish an account by choosing a traditional, Roth, SEP, or Simple IRA. The banking entity will deposit income and pay expenses through the IRA at your direction. The banking entity provides record keeping and tax reporting for the account.

    3. FUND YOUR ACCOUNT

    Transfer funds from an existing IRA, rollover funds from a former employer’s plan (like a 401k), or make a contribution.

    4. COMPLETE THE PURCHASE

    Send final closing documents and required paperwork to your Trust. Your IRA owns the asset once purchased.

    5. MONITOR YOUR ACCOUNT

    Use the banking entity’s online portal to monitor your account. You can make contributions, request distributions, view statements, tax documents, and pay bills on behalf of the IRA. They also provide a secure document upload feature for time-sensitive delivery of important papers.
