IRA Advantage was created to empower the investors we have worked with since 1991. Over the years we have fielded questions on IRAs and have received numerous inquiries for help with Self-directed IRA products and their investment in real estate.
As we entered 2008 financing grew tighter and investors watched their retirement savings shrink, the demand for our service only increased. It was clear that we had to create a solution to our client’s needs. IRA Advantage, a sister company of Equity Advantage, Incorporated, is the result. We created a service that effectively creates a “conduit” out of the stocks and bonds that a traditionally held into real estate and other alternative investments and to make those investments simply by writing a check. The firm’s mission is simple-to provide Opportunities and Solutions to the people we work with.
The principles of the firm are David and Thomas Moore. The Moore brothers have been pillars of the Investment Real Estate Community since 1991 when they founded Equity Advantage, a 1031 Exchange Facilitation company. The brothers are known for their ability to get the difficult deal done, they are often called in as consultants before deals are struck or to clean up deals that are going astray. It is the thorough working knowledge of how to get the deal done that now empowers clients through IRA Advantage.
You’ve worked hard for your money, we’ll make it work hard for you.
