Customer Review

on March 30, 2009
Since 1960 individual investors have pooled their money together to purchase REITs (real estate investment trusts); a stable investment tool that combines the risk of real-estate ownership and the tidiness of trusts. In the United States there are three types of REITs, equity, mortgage, and hybrid and unlike other investments the company must return at least 90% of its annual taxable income to shareholders through dividends. Often this return competes with, and can even outperform stocks, mutual funds, and bonds.
Many in the investment community view the inherent risk involved in REITs as significantly less than many other investments and the returns are predictable over both the long and the short term. And the buy-and-hold strategy tends to work well with a blue-chip portfolio of REITs.
This book's goal is to help the REIT investor outperform the market by teaching the principles unique to this type of investment. There are detailed explanations concerning what to do before entering this market. While there are risks in any investment a majority of the industry's observers agree that REITs, both as a sector and as individual companies, will grown significantly over the next ten years.
An encyclopedic glossary is included to help those interested in investing in REITs. This is an excellent book.
