Any good investment requires planning ahead and a good strategy in order to work and maximize gains. When these are absent, an investment can quickly go bad, or in the best case, generate minimal returns. Getting it all right as an individual with no guidance or experience is next to impossible. As an investor with a self-directed IRA, one would want to have a group of experienced professional to help achieve optimal results and provide maximum returns. City Capital Corporation has a board of people who fit that description perfectly.

When an individual decides to join City Capital's program, the first step is to convert his or her IRA into a self-directed IRA. This does not require any difficult steps and there aren't any fees for the conversion. After a Personal Portfolio Review has been done to determine eligibility, the next step is to establish a company. City Capital helps the client through the process, where a Limited Liability Company, or LLC, is created. This company is controlled solely by the owner of the IRA, unless he or she desires to add other people to the board. Though City Capital assists throughout the process, it has no influence on the newly created LLC.

The LLC is created "inside" the IRA. Basically this means that the funds move into the company, which is contained entirely in the IRA. Though this may seem like a premature withdrawal of funds, this is not the case, and this action does not incur penalties, fees, or taxes of any sort, and is rather common in real estate investing. This LLC, in turn, is used to "hire" the management team at City Capital to do all the work. Again, since the LLC belongs to the owner of the IRA, nothing is done without that individual's approval. All of City Capital's experience, inside knowledge, connections, and programs are then used for the benefit of the investor.

At that point, City Capitals begins its work. Homes and properties are bought, restored and remodeled, then sold again for profits which flow into the client's IRA. There is nothing the IRA holder needs to do at this point, other than watch the money come in, then get invested and reinvested. At any time the owner can stop a certain activity, since he or she has exclusive rights to the respective LLC.

The difference between this setup and a traditional IRA is astounding. Instead of having someone else run everything and collect fee after fee for providing modest returns, City Capital Corporation does the work for an investor while providing much higher gains. Yet the account holder remains on top of everything, with full control over all investments. Combined with the "community renaissance" and new opportunities for blue collar families which are created by City Capital, is it difficult to imagine why anyone would want to stay with the old way of running an Individual Retirement Account. No other company provides such high returns coupled with the community benefits for investors.
