"I have owned my own business for 25 years and have contributed to my IRA annually. A few years ago I had an opportunity to buy an investment property, but it was in disrepair and not mortgageable. I did not have the funds available to purchase it as cash, but I did have the money saved in my IRA. I did some research online and found Broad Financial; it seemed like a good fit for what we wanted to do. Through the guidance of Broad Financial and our accountant, we switched our IRA that was somewhat stagnant to a self-directed IRA and purchased our first investment property. That property was so successful, that my wife did the same thing and now we own two. The amount of money that our self-directed IRAs make is significantly more than when it was sitting and we actually have two houses to show for it now. We would highly recommend anyone that has an opportunity to buy real estate, but may not have the funds available, to consider contacting Broad Financial and their accountant to discuss options. We are very happy with our decisions and our children will benefit as well."
