Should you pull money out of retirement accounts or skip investing in retirement accounts in order to invest in real estate? No. With this pandemic and change in physician incomes, many have been looking at other sources of income outside their medical practice. I worry when someone is being told to pull money out of their retirement accounts before they need to spend it in retirement or before required to by the government. I think you need to be a little bit worried anytime someone is recommending against something that is so beneficial to you, like retirement accounts are for doctors. But I totally understand that real estate investing is really attractive to people. It is a great asset class with a lot of benefits. I never invested in real estate, outside of retirement accounts, until I had maxed out my retirement accounts. I recommend you do the same. In this episode I discuss why with the tax benefits, estate planning benefits and asset protection benefits provided you in retirement account contributions. But I also talk about what your other options are to still invest in real estate if you choose.
