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.

There are more than 1,100 U.S. REITs registered with the IRS that have filed tax returns. These include 225 that trade on one of the major stock exchanges.

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. Also, whenever interest rates rise, REITs have the risk of losing value. So read the document and risk factors before investing.
