A 401k is an employer sponsored plan and the guidelines for employee investments are limited by the plan. If you really want to invest in real estate and it is not an approved investment, there are (2) options:
1. Check to see if there is a "Brokerage Option" which may give you access to pull the funds into a self managed IRA (this is somewhat rare).
2. Termination-separation from service will allow you to roll the funds to an IRA.
