With the creation of the Individual Retirement Account (IRA) in 1975, it allowed Americans to broaden their investment options.  Although not widely publicized initially, the trend of investing with a self-directed IRA in non-traditional assets such as real estate is growing.  A self-directed IRA simply means that you have complete control over selecting and directing your own investments, allowing you to invest in non-traditional investments not offered through traditional retirement plans.

Below are Custodians/Administrators that offer self-directed IRAs:
