Real Estate Investment Trust

A type of investment company that is used to allow shareholders to share in the ownership and income of a portfolio of real estate properties is called a real estate investment trust or REIT.  REIT's trade the same as public stock and can be found on the New York Stock Exchange and other exchanges.

REIT's can specialize in in different types of real estate such as shopping centers, income property, warehouses, office buildings and others.  It can have the goal of income, growth or both income and growth.  Special rules for REIT's require that most income received by the REIT be distributed to shareholders.

The value of the shares of a real estate investment trust fluctuate with the prevailing market for the shares.  Generally they will fluctuate with the value of the real estate holdings held by the REIT and may sell for a premium or discount to that value depending upon market sentiment.
