What is a real estate investment trust?
A real estate investment trust (REIT) is an entity that owns and maintains a portfolio of income-producing real estate properties. Investors own shares in these properties without needing to manage the properties themselves.
However, many REITs expect investors to remain invested for an extended period. That lack of liquidity can make REITs unsuitable for some investors.
