<<<What else can you put in an IRA that isn't stock or mutual fund related?>>>

"Bonds. Pretty sure that's it. What did you have in mind? Real Estate is OUT."

No, it is theoreticallypossible to own real estate in an IRA, but it is expensive and requires dotting all the i's and crossing all the t's and avoidign prohibited transactions and excessive contributions to the IRA.

See. e.g.:
(and note the reference to Bernie Madoff)

I do not not, and am likely never to, own real estate inside an IRA.
