Other considerations

Often times retirement funds will not allow you to personally sign for a note, so a non-recourse loan is required.

Two sides to the issue

In the past few years we’ve had a couple clients withdraw money from their retirement accounts and pay the taxes and penalties.


Once the money is out of your account you can now take losses on your investment properties to reduce your annual income.

You can also take money that would normally be taxed at a higher rate and invest in real estate and pay the reduce capital gains rate when you sell.
