Many Real Estate Investors have heard that they can save big money on taxes and increase the value of their retirement funds by investing in real estate using a Self-Directed IRA, but they still haven't taken the steps necessary to make it happen.
On today's episode we talk with Edwin Kelly, one of the nation's top experts on Self-Directed Retirement accounts to learn why they're such a great tool & vehicle for building legacy wealth. Edwin also share's his Triple-D, three-step process: DECIDE that you want one and set it up properly, DEPOSIT the money you'll need to work with, and DIRECT that money into the investment vehicle of your choice.
Edwin does a great job of simplifying the process in a way that might finally get you to take action. He also shares stories of his clients who have used SDIRA's to eliminate their credit card debt, shield their wholesaling income from earned income tax, and created thousands of dollars in monthly retirement income off of an initial $4,000 investment.
We also bring the conversation to a higher level when Edwin answers my questions about investing in syndications through SDIRA's and the consequences of UBIT and UDFI taxation on leveraged investments.
I know you'll get a lot of great, action-able information from this conversation. Edwin will also be a featured speaker at the RPOA's Annual Real Estate Investors FREE Conference and Expo, which is taking place February 22 - 24, 2018 in Grand Rapids, Michigan.

At the age of 44, Hunter Carlile lost his corporate job and had to figure out how he would support his wife and three kids. That was over four years ago, and in that time Hunter has bought/sold or rented over 200 houses! And he's done it primarily through tax lien investing.
Today Hunter shares his tax lien and investing strategies. We'll talk about how he finds distressed properties, fixes them up, and either sells or holds as rentals. We'll also discuss the in's & out's of tax lien investing and the pitfalls investors need to be aware of.
Hunter also talks about his experiences using direct mail to find motivated sellers of distressed properties, why you should always avoid lender escrows for taxes and insurance, and how he relates to & works with home owners who find themselves in foreclosure.
Hunter has also developed software that tax lien investors can use to simplify the process, and he's a coach and trainer as well. You can find out more by going to his website or contacting him through email:
