Can I Invest In REITs Through A Retirement Account?

Learning Center Menu

Yes, it is possible to invest in REITs (Real Estate Investment Trusts) through a retirement account, such as an Individual Retirement Account (IRA) or 401(k). Many brokerage firms and investment companies offer REITs as an investment option within retirement accounts.

Investing in REITs through a retirement account can have certain tax benefits. For example, if you hold REITs in a traditional IRA, you may be able to deduct your contributions from your taxable income, and your investments will grow tax-deferred until you withdraw them in retirement. If you hold REITs in a Roth IRA, you won't get a tax deduction for your contributions, but your investments will grow tax-free, and you won't have to pay taxes on your withdrawals in retirement.

Before investing in REITs or any other investment through a retirement account, it's important to do your research and consult with a financial advisor to ensure that it aligns with your overall investment strategy and retirement goals.
