Why invest through a SD-IRA?

Self-Directed IRAs (SD-IRAs) offer unique advantages for investors looking for flexibility and control over their retirement funds.


With an SD-IRA, you are not confined to traditional investment options such as stocks, bonds, and mutual funds.

SD-IRAs allow you to diversify your retirement portfolio into alternative investments like private real estate.

Tax Benefits

Depending on the type of SD-IRA you have (traditional or Roth), you can either defer your tax payment until retirement or avoid it altogether.

In a traditional SD-IRA, your contributions are often tax-deductible, and you pay taxes upon withdrawal.


SD-IRAs provide you a greater degree of control over your investments.

You choose exactly where your money is invested, allowing you to personally manage risk and reward based on your investment knowledge and comfort level.

What to be aware of when using your SD-IRA

While SD-IRAs are supported, it is important to consider the following

Provider Compatibility
  • Confirm that your IRA provider supports private real estate investments

  • If this is not the case, consider transitioning to a provider that does as there are many more asset classes outside of stocks and bonds

Custodian Process
  • The procedures associated with investing through an SD-IRA can differ among custodians

  • Some custodians may allow investors to execute closing documents, while others necessitate signing on the investor's behalf

  • Familiarize yourself with these processes to ensure a smooth investment procedure.

Funding Deadline
  • When investing with an SD-IRA, compliance with the investment's funding deadline is paramount

  • Please note that the signing process may be conducted offline for certain IRA investors due to unique custodian requirements.

Do I need to be an accredited investor to invest with an SD-IRA?

Yes. Regardless of the investment vehicle, you must verify your status as an accredited investor on the HoneyBricks platform.

This status verifies that you possess the financial stability to accommodate the potential risks associated with these investments.

For more information about accreditation and other eligibility conditions, we encourage you to visit our HoneyBricks Platform Eligibility page.
