Real Estate Investment Trust
  • All about REITs
  • A company that owns income- producing real estate

  • It may  focus on a particular type of property, for example offices, apartments, shopping malls, strip centers or industrial properties
  • Its revenue is the total rent coming in from the tenants
  • Its profit is what remains after the property managers, janitors, lighting companies, mortgage companies, and local units of government have been paid
  • To be a REIT, a company must distribute at least 90% of its taxable income to shareholders annually in the form of dividends
