IRA Can be Individual Retirement Abode
Anyone seeking a second home might consider buying it as an IRA -- Individual Retirement Abode. One company, Sum Total Financial Management of Chicago, says you can buy a place “outside” of an IRA while using funds from an IRA to pay for it. "This program complies with all legislative and IRA/Tax laws," the company declares. (When property is purchased “inside” the IRA it cannot be enjoyed or occupied by the investor.)
