Are Private Placements (PPM’s) Riskier than Wall Street?

March 6, 2018

Let’s take a look and see what actually happens behind the curtains.

In the case of a REIT (Real Estate Investment Trust) the market makers at Wall Street are between the investor and the deal and they take a healthy premium.

They typically take heavy fees and they often have a specific time-frame from when they enter the deal to when they exit. In this case they may sell into an unfavorable market.

Many investors invest in REIT’s, life insurance companies, pension plans or other large institution type funds. These funds typically invest in real estate, apartment buildings, self-storage and other assets very similar to the assets that are in a normal private placement. Continue reading…

Investing in Agriculture with your Self-Directed IRA

March 5, 2018

One of the many alternatives available for self-directed IRA investors is agriculture. Agriculture investments can help your retirement funds grow in two ways: First, a farm produces crops, and these crops generate income when sold. In addition, the value of the land may increase over time, resulting in tax-deferred capital gains. Investing in agriculture has become more popular in the past ten years. TIAA, a Fortune 100 financial services organization and the leading retirement investor for the academic community, owned no agricultural land in 2007. Today, they have more than $8 billion worth of farmland, including investments on behalf of itself and other institutional investors.

Commercial Real Estate: How to Profit During Inflation

March 1, 2018

Uncertainty in the public markets continues to cause unrest among global and domestic investors, with inflation being one of the main economic theories circulating among financial analysts about the cause of the next market crash.

What exactly is inflation? The economic definition of inflation is “a general increase in prices and fall in the purchasing value of money.” In reality, this translates to ordinary expenses, like groceries or gas, are going to cost more — and in some instances much more than one is accustomed — without a relative increase in work related income.

Investing in “hard assets” such as gold or other precious metals, oil or other natural resources, and even art have historically been protective investment vehicles to both protect against inflation, and in some instances, turn a future profit. When an economic shift happens, investors seek alternative investments like commercial real estate to their traditional public stock, bond and cash portfolios.

Can IRA’s Get Married? NO…But…

Partner Lending with an IRA

I Now Pronounce You Partners in Lending!  Ok, that really wasn’t what the pastor said on the day we got married but who knew 29 years ago that one day my wife’s IRA and my IRA would be able to partner with one another.

Our Roth IRAs have been lenders to a number of real estate investors and rehabbers looking to buy, renovate and sell properties.  There have been a number of occasions where we could fund the loan in one account or the other but there have been times when we were actually able to have our IRA’s partner be each owning an undivided interest in a first position note.

The Payoffs of Private Lending – NuView Client Success Story

January 9, 2018

“The first month I saw the payments going into my NuView account I knew I had made the right decision. Several borrowers paid off the loans ahead of time. I just needed to see the money coming in to believe it.”


Our featured client of the month, Jim, had been investing in the 401K his company provided for him in the telecom sector since the early 90s. According to Jim, “The return wasn’t great but the employer matching was enticing.”

In 2013, he left the corporate world to go full-time into real estate and had a small amount of funds he wanted to rollover into something but was not sure of the best option. When his accountant suggested a self-directed IRA with NuView he was intrigued with the idea. Jim had never heard of a self-directed retirement account before then and took some time to research and consider this is an option. Jim’s accountant had several clients that were also clients of NuView Trust and she highly recommended NuView as the best self-directed IRA custodian to work with. In early 2014, Jim finally pulled the trigger and opened up an account with NuView Trust rolling his funds over to reap the benefits of self-direction.
