Self Directed IRA Investing | Memphis Real Estate Makes Sense!

By Chris Clothier on Wed, Dec 15, 2010

I talk to real estate investors every single week who are interested in investing in Memphis real estate with MemphisInvest.com for a lot of different reasons.  Some of the most interesting investors I talk to though, are those who are highly diversified in other markets.  They own stock portfolios or invest in Bonds and Mutual Funds.  They have spent years with financial planners preparing for a day that now seems in jeopardy:  Retirement!  Most of these investors are turning to a tool that their "advisors" failed to teach them about - Self Directed Retirement Accounts.  With the right real estate investments at all time values, the focus to investing in real estate with your retirement account could not have come at a better time.

LIsten up Memphis real estate investors...

By Chris Clothier on Fri, Oct 1, 2010

"Don't Throw out the Bicycle for the Bumps in the Road"!

I love expressions like this.  They speak to the real emotions that real estate investors face everyday and carry that folksy remedy that our parents used as an approach to tough situations.

Today, real estate investors are facing more and more tough situations and some are tougher than others.  The obstacles we face as real estate investors, especially Memphis investors wanting to buy discount properties in Memphis with leverage, seem to come out of nowhere right when we get to the finish line.  We often have that feeling that the road gets a little bumpier just as things appear to be going smoother.  The bumps are getting a little bumpier too!
