"Given your combined $1 million in 401(k) accounts, incorporating Roth IRAs into your retirement strategy is wise. Planning for retirement and making smart investment choices are vital steps for securing long-term financial stability." said Dutch Mendenhall, CEO of RAD Diversified. But Mendenhall also warns that it’s important to understand the rules around your various retirement options. Specifically, if you switch from traditional 401(k) contributions to a Roth 401(k) or Roth IRA, your taxes will increase. This is because you’ll lose the tax deduction for your original portfolio contributions, meaning you pay taxes on any money that goes into the Roth accounts. Now, this effect could be modest depending on the rest of your tax situation, but it should be accounted for.

Inventory is also low, around 46% less than the historical average going back to 1999.

Investors are finding a variety of entry points into farmland investments, including publicly listed REITs, such as Gladstone Land Corp. (LAND) and Farmland Partners Inc. (FPI), as private equity funds and offerings. RAD Diversified is a non-traded REIT that dipped a toe into the farmland arena in 2020 with the purchase of its first farm for $8 million. "More people ask us about farmland than any other investment that we do," says Dutch Mendenhall, founder and CEO of RAD Diversified. The company has Reg A and Reg D offerings that are open to accredited and non-accredited investors with minimum investments of $1,000. Investors like farmland for a variety of reasons, including the fact that there is a scarcity component, he says. "What I like about land is that it is not just land that you buy and sit on, which is the case with a lot of land investments. It's an income tool," he adds. RAD Diversified is both a buyer and hands-on operator of the farms it acquires. RAD Diversified has realized value by making improvements to farms that allow it to produce a more optimum yield, as well as investing in things like technology that can improve efficiency. "I think self-managing the farms has been a really valuable tool for us," he says. RAD Diversified now owns farms in Idaho, Arkansas and Tennessee and expects to launch a non-traded REIT specializing in farmland later this summer.

If the Fed does raise rates again next month, home buyers will be scared of purchasing for several reasons, Dutch Mendenhall, founder at RAD Diversified REIT, noted. Because there is still a relative low inventory of houses for sale, higher interest rates with higher home prices mean buyers may not find the house they want in the current price range. "Additionally, higher rates create higher debt-to-income ratio calculation, resulting in qualifying for lower mortgage amounts," Mendenhall said. However, a higher interest rate environment can provide more opportunity for cash buyers. "Without having to worry about interest rates, cash buyers can be very attractive to sellers, as they know they can go to quickly, and as a result, cash buyers can find themselves in a much better position to negotiate a better sale price," he noted.

Investor Dutch Mendenhall, CEO of RAD Diversified, says it often makes better sense from an investment standpoint to choose an adjustable-rate loan, such as a 7/1 ARM. "Here, you can take advantage of a lower rate for the first seven years while the property appreciates. From there, you can refinance, cash out on your investment and reset the term with another variable or fixed-rate loan per market conditions at the time," says Mendenhall
