Reston, United States – June 21, 2020 /MarketersMedia/ —
Currently, the global stock market is making a lot of investors nervous. Rookies and experts alike are looking for answers, and the dramatic market swings (some as much as 10%) are preventing new investors from stepping into the marketplace. Because of this, many potential investors are looking for safe, lower risk options for investments.
Your Money Geek and The Money Mix writer Fred Leamnson recently put together an article about an investment that is typically considered to be relatively low-risk – the Real Estate Investment Trust, better known as the REIT. This article dives into what the best REITs currently are, and how an interested investor would be able to get involved in them.
Understanding REITs is an essential part of determining whether or not a REIT is a worthwhile investment for you to consider. These are real estate investment options that have been specially designed for those with lower investment capital so that they are able to “get in on” larger real estate investments without as much risk or capital.
Leamnson goes on to explain exactly how REITs work, why they exist, and how they can be utilized by common people in order to assist consumers when they are thinking about “dipping their toes” into real estate investments. Real estate can be an expensive thing to invest in, so having access via a group investment option like an REIT is going to make the process simpler and allow individuals to make an investment that works.
As Leamnson explains, these investments happen in a variety of contexts, including raw land, commercial properties, farmland, and residential options. If an individual feels passionate about a certain type of real estate investment, or they have a preference as to which they would like to pursue, many REITs make that a possibility.
According to Leamnson, ”You can do REIT investing via publicly-traded REITs via mutual funds or ETFs. You would buy and sell shares of these REITs like stocks, ETFs, or mutual funds. There are also publically non-traded REITs. These are less liquid than publicly-traded REITs. They don’t trade on national exchanges like mutual funds and ETFs. As such, they are not subject to the kinds of market fluctuations as publicly-traded REITs.”
The choice is completely up to the consumer, and the best REITs are the ones that they discover that are the most lucrative and the easiest for a consumer to access.
