Real estate can fund your retirement—but brace yourself for lots of risk and rules.
Self-directed individual retirement accounts allow people to diversify their investments into assets other than the traditional stocks, bonds and mutual funds that make up most retirement plans. Examples of alternative investments include real estate, precious metals and oil and gas holdings.

So far, only about two dozen companies in the U.S. can act as custodians of self-directed IRAs.
