Perhaps the biggest advantage self-directed IRAs offer is the ability to invest in what you knowFor many Entrust clients, that means real estateMore Entrust clients invest in real estate than in any other asset. Their reasons for investing in real estate include the desire to diversify their investment portfolios; benefit from long-term, tax-advantaged market value growth; and generate an ongoing revenue stream while they own the asset. Every year, Entrust produces a report that describes trends and activity among their real estate investorsThis article highlights their 2016 real estate purchases Content Square 1. Where Entrust Clients Bought Real Estate California, Texas, Colorado, Florida, and Arizona are the top five states where clients bought property in 2016This has been consistent for several years. Looking at the list of 12 states where Entrust clients bought real estate, purchases in Missouri increased nearly 4 percent over 2015And for the first time, clients bought property in Ohio, Tennessee, Indiana, and WashingtonCalifornia, however, remained the top choice, with one-quarter of all purchases made there. Taking a broader look at the regional level, purchases in the West actually declined by 7 percentIt may have been that higher prices discouraged investors from buying thereThe decline in purchases in the West was more than made up for in increases in the Midwest (up 4 percent) and South (up 5 percent)This may have been the result of investors seeking property in other, less-expensive regional markets Content Square 2. Where clients buy is closely related to where they liveFloridians and Arizonans, for example, maintained their solid, 100 percent preference for local real estate, and Coloradans increased their in-state purchases by 8 percent, from 72 percent in 2015 to 80 percent in 2016. Californians (57 percent) and Texans (88 percent) were more willing to buy out of state in 2016 than in 2015This may have to do with the hot property markets in those two states, with investors looking for better deals a bit farther afield.
