Quora Answer: Are REITs a Good Investment?
The following question was asked on Quora and answered on the 30th September, 2015.
Question: Are REITs a good investment?
Answer: As to whether it is a good investment, that is impossible to answer because like any form of security, “good” and “bad” depends on many factors. As to whether it can be a good investment, on the other hand, the short answer is yes. REITs provide a liquid stake in an illiquid investment. This allows smaller investors an opportunity to participate in an investment that would normally be out of their reach. Also, depending on the market you invest in, there may be tax breaks as well.
