Subject:  How to fund a property purchase? Date:  6/26/2020  10:57 AM
Author:  t0bes Number:  14293 of 14304

As I approach retirement, I’d like to purchase a second property (for my family’s use, not rental). I’d assumed I’d fund it by withdrawing a lump sum from my IRA when I pass the 59½ age limit, however, since I’ll still be working, I realize I’d then incur a significant tax bill.
Is there a more efficient way to fund the purchase, such as taking out a mortgage and then paying it back from my IRA over a few years?
Thanks in advance for any suggestions!
