Buying your own home in the ROTH would be self dealing. Second it would not be needed since ther is a lifetime exclusion big enough to handle most gain on the ultimate sale. Third, you could not then take the deduction on your personal taxes for interest and property taxes. Finally, as I commented below, there is not the privacy because they title it FBO your name.

Does anyone know why more people aren’t buying investment properties using IRA money?

A self-directed ROTH IRA would be tax free. BKs and other lawsuits would have a difficult time getting to IRA assets.

An IRA trustee also offers privacy protection from the
outside world.

Property title also recorded under trustee name.

No land trust needed. No trust needed period.

A couple points worth mentioning . . .

#1) An IRA is fairly easy to break as a creditor; there is little protection under state law for IRAs

#2) An IRA is not a substitute for a land trust, but rather in conjunction with (buy in land trust, beneficiary is IRA trustee).

#3) Buying an HOLDING real estate in an IRA is not very safe from a liability standpoint because it subjects ALL of your IRA assets to collection if suit is filed against it.
