Even in a sluggish economy, bed-and-breakfasts are a popular choice for tourists seeking lodging off the beaten path. They offer guests the opportunity to socialize with other travelers in a more intimate setting. Many countries offer a variation of the bed-and-breakfast, but most are small lodging establishments with fewer than 10 bedrooms available to rent out. For retirees who love to provide hospitality, they also offer post-retirement job opportunities. And with their rebounding popularity, bed-and-breakfasts may also be an excellent investment opportunity for your self-directed IRA.
While it generally requires significant legal guidance to invest your self-directed IRA in a business you’re personally going to run, investors who want to avoid self-dealing can do so by investing in a business owned by someone else; perhaps a trusted colleague with great business sense. This helps you avoid prohibited transactions.
If you are interested in building your retirement portfolio, think about investing your self-directed IRA in nontraditional assets, whether it’s a bed-and-breakfast or another investment you’re interested in. We won’t tell you what to invest in—the beauty of self-directed IRAs is the freedom they offer you as the investor. Give us a call so we can help you get started with investing today. Now’s the time!
