Buying Real Estate within your Retirement account. - Posted by Melinda

I heard that you can buy Real Estate within your retirement account… Not a RIET!!! For example if you have money in a 401K or IRA (either roth or regular) you can put that money as a down payment say 10% and buy real estate. Does anyone know more about this?

I am not talking about borrowing from the retirement account or taking it out early but accually using the money in the accout as an investment on a perticular property.
