The good news is IRAs can purchase real estate the same way you can outside of an IRA – with cash, through entities, or a mortgage. The choice is yours.

Private entity investments are made to non-publicly traded companies, such as small to mid-size businesses and startups. They are structured in a variety of ways – private placements, private funds, limited partnerships, LLCs and private stock, just to name a few.
