Cheat Sheet / Updated 09-07-2023

A real estate investment trust (REIT) is a company that owns, manages, and/or finances real estate holdings. These holdings can be in the form of apartment buildings, hotels, shopping centers, self-storage facilities, warehouses, and even billboards, data centers, cell towers, woodlands, and many others. REITs have stock attributes (liquidity and transparency) and, at the same time, enable you to enjoy the benefits of owning income-producing real estate. With this Cheat Sheet, you get a quick primer on the benefits of REIT investment, how to add REITs to your portfolio, how to choose smart REITs, and how to become a virtual landlord without the aggravation of owning private real estate.
