How should I invest extra cash?

I max out my 401k
The wife maxes out her traditional IRA
I am not able to invest in a roth due to income.

We already pay extra towards the house.
we are accumulating lots of extra cash that needs to earn interest somehow. Where should I stick it?

So you're income is too high to invest in a roth?

Do you want to contribute to a Roth IRA?
You can contribute to a traditional IRA. Then convert it to a Roth. It's a loop hole that essentially allows you to contribute to a Roth, but with an extra step.

If you qualify to be an accredited investor you can have all kinds of options. Wiki it to see what's involved.

Go get a fee based financial planner and start pumping your money into a taxable investment portfolio.

yep. without a doubt. markets are not all the same across the country. Sometimes you have to invest where the deals are.

My advisor says I will not be eligible for a traditional Ira because of my 401k plan. Is this accurate?

I already invest in real estate but took a beating on my last deal.

You can always contribute to a traditional Ira up to $5k if you're under 50 regardless of your 401k. What he may be talking about is that you can't deduct your contributions from taxes. People who don't participate in qualified retirement plans can deduct contributions to a traditional Ira.
