What is a real estate investment trust?

Real estate investment trusts (“REITs”) allow individuals to invest in large-scale, income-producing real estate which may include office buildings, shopping malls, apartments, hotels, resorts, self-storage facilities, warehouses, and mortgages or loans.
A REIT is a company that owns and operates income-producing real estate, but they do not develop real estate properties to resell them. REITs provide a way for individual investors to earn a share of the income produced through commercial real estate ownership – without actually having to go out, buy or develop commercial real estate.   Types of REITs
