Self Directed IRA Investing in Real Estate as a Private Bank

The market is always changing and as such, I have learned that I too need to always be changing or at least growing. With that being said, for the past 3-4 months, I have been doing a lot of reading on self directed IRAs. More specifically, the "Private Bank Concept" within the self directed IRA industry. Honestly, this concept amazes me, in fact, I am struggling to understand why more of us in the REO industry aren't cornering this market.

I guess first off, I had to…
