Many years ago when I was just getting started in real estate, I went to a Ron LeGrand seminar.  I heard Mr. Ron say that you can open a Roth IRA and buy and sell real estate from it TAX FREE!  I came back from that seminar so excited I could not sleep!  I went over to talk with my older cousin, who is a long-time and well-respected Certified Financial Planner in this area.  I thought, “Surely he will be as excited as I am, because now he can earn his clients much higher returns...
