Deep Dive: How to Start Investing in REITs

In a Nutshell...

A REIT or a Real Estate Investment Trust is an investment vehicle that owns, operates or finances income-producing real estate assets.
As an investor in REITs, you own a share of real estate and the income produced through real estate properties – without having to buy, manage, or finance the properties or portfolio.

Why Invest in REITs

High Returns

Historically, they produce competitive and reliable returns, whether the market is up or down.

Low Volatility

REITs are like stocks and bonds but with lower beta which means less volatility. You can also easily monitor listed REITs’ performances and outlook. This oversight provides investors with a measure of protection and a better idea of REIT's financial condition.

Easy to Understand

Focus on insights into real estate. You don’t need to be an expert on various industries to own shares of publicly listed REITs. It’s all about understanding the lifelong principles of what determines a property’s value. You co-own real estate that is easy to liquidate and that has no operational risk. No need to deal with plumbing issues, renovations or rent collection.

Portfolio Diversification

REITs offer access to the real estate market. Their comparatively low correlation with other assets makes them an excellent portfolio diversifier that can help reduce overall portfolio risk and increase returns.

Should You Invest in REITs?

REITs are recommended by 80% of registered investment advisors. Institutional investors like pension funds, endowments, foundations, insurance companies, and bank trust departments also invest in REITs.

You should invest in REITs if you…

are looking for low-volatility investments

want to gain exposure to real estate investments with low capital outlay

worry about inflation eating (or chipping) away at your savings

want to invest in real estate without the burden of managing the assets yourself

It is a fantastic software that easily broadens your perspectives on the various REITs as increased focus and attention can be devoted to its analysis rather than on the extremely cumbersome data entry of the REIT.
