Top 100 REITs Stocks List (2021) US Real Estate Investment Trusts


US Real Estate Investment Trusts

A real estate investment trust (REIT) is a type of company that owns or finances real estate. It’s just like mutual funds (which accept funds from individual investors). Instead of giving their owners interest in one or more specific securities, and provide investors with an interest in a group of “real estate investment properties.

REITs have been around in the United States for more than 60 years and most REITs specialize in certain types of markets, such as apartments, office buildings, and hotels.

Many companies are also part of the S&P 500 List and that’s why more than 145 million Americans own REITs. But do you know how a company qualifies as a REIT?

To qualify as a Real Estate Investment Trust (REIT) a company must:

  • Invest at least 75% of its total assets in real estate.
  • Derive at least 75% of its gross income from rents from real property, interest on mortgages financing real property or from sales of real estate.
  • Pay at least 90% of its taxable income in the form of shareholder dividends each year.
  • Be an entity that is taxable as a corporation.
  • Be managed by a board of directors or trustees.
  • Have a minimum of 100 shareholders.
  • Have no more than 50% of its shares held by five or fewer individuals.

How many reits are there in United State?

Is it safe to buy REIT stocks?


Most of the REITs are a safe investment but not all. Because many REITs have cut or suspended their dividends because they couldn’t withstand the financial volatility of the market.
