Vinatge Filings is pleased to be a sponsor at today and tomorrow’s Information Management Network’s Ninth Annual New York Non Traded REIT Industry Symposium ( I simply call it the IMNNANYNTREITIS).
Retail investors like REITs – we’ve had CEOs from several REITs present (live, online roadshow) at RetailInvestorConferences.com.
What is a REIT? From Investopedia:
“A security that sells like a stock on the major exchanges and invests in real estate directly, either through properties or mortgages. REITs receive special tax considerations and typically offer investors high yields, as well as a highly liquid method of investing in real estate.
Individuals can invest in REITs either by purchasing their shares directly on an open exchange or by investing in a mutual fund that specializes in public real estate. An additional benefit to investing in REITs is the fact that many are accompanied by dividend reinvestment plans (DRIPs). Among other things, REITs invest in shopping malls, office buildings, apartments, warehouses and hotels. Some REITs will invest specifically in one area of real estate – shopping malls, for example – or in one specific region, state or country. Investing in REITs is a liquid, dividend-paying means of participating in the real estate market.”
Have a great day.
