Advantages to each option

1. Cash

A way to save money on the purchase

2. Conventional Bank Loan

We have done lots of research to find you great financing packages through banks. Call us for current best options.

3. Buying with an IRA (Individual Retirement Account)

Many don’t know this but real estate can be purchased with IRA funds without paying penalties and deferring taxes on the gains.

4. Borrowing against a 401k

You can borrow up to 50% of account value up to $50,000.

  • With a 401k, you pay interest on the loan out of your own pocket and into your own 401k account.
  • The interest on a 401k may be lower than what you could obtain through a commercial lender, line of credit, or a credit card, making the loan payment more affordable.
  • There are generally no qualifying requirements for taking a 401k loan, which can help employees who may not qualify for a commercial loan based on credit history or current financial status.
  • The 401k Loan Application process is generally easier and faster than going through a commercial lender and does not go on your credit report.
  • If you are taking a loan to buy a home, you can have up to 10 years to repay the loan with interest.
5. Home Equity Loan or HELOC

You can use the equity in your home to secure a loan. Generally faster and one can write off the interest.
