Why do I talk about Real Estate investments and being a real estate investor, because here are the Numbers:
You can put $5,500 into your IRA per year. If you are making 5% (this is generous as the national average is 2.65%) in compound interest, you are my age (36) and you keep that IRA going for 34 years, you will have $491k at age 70 for retirement.
If you SELF DIRECT that money into something that pays you 10% over the same time, you will have $1.5MM at retirement.
No wonder why our investors are so happy. If you know anyone who would be interested in a return like this, have them reach out to me!
