I didn't hear the Berg comments, but there are a couple of ways I know of to use Real Estate in an IRA (you're correct about tangible assets being generally excluded from IRA's). REITS provide a gateway to real estate, since they are comapnies that usually purchase real estate. Another avenue is through use of a trust deed filed with an IRA custodian (usually a trust company)who will accept it in an IRA. Often times charges for such holdings can be considerable higher that for "securitized" IRAs.One thing to be aware of is prohibited transactions, such as putting your vacation property into your IRA. The service tends to frown on that.Hope this helps.GDC
