I am not an attorney or investment counselor. I am a real estate professional who is fully aware of the many ways to buy and sell real estate. This is closely related to the many more ways one can benefit in areas associated with real estate. You may find, as I have, that you could lose ALL THE BENFITS of an IRA by creating a situation where you DIRECTLY benefit, such as living in the property. Matter of fact, it must be greater that arms length to protect your interests. (see attached link below) OF course you will want to have a personal dissucssion with your tax adviser, accountant, investment advisor or attorney. They are the most available autorities on this subject.
You can also read the educational information available from The Entrust Group.
Best of success to you.
