Introduction – REITs
REITs are most often thought about as income-producing investments. Although this is generally a true statement, REITs can also be great builders of wealth if invested correctly. To invest in REITs correctly, it is imperative that the investor understand the true nature of the beast. Furthermore, it is also critical to pay attention to valuation when considering REITs for your portfolio.
Due to the dilutive nature of REITs, they are not generally known or thought of as fast growers. On the other hand, they are renowned for the consistency of their dividend growth and for the prodigious amount of income, they produce for shareholders over time. Due to these factors, investors seeking reliable growth of capital coupled with a prodigious and growing income stream can utilize REITs as a predictable and important part of their long-term retirement planning.
