How to Build Wealth with Real Estate Investment Trusts

Between 2001 and 2015, real estate investment trusts (REITs) delivered average annual total returns of 11 percent—significantly outperforming the five percent average annual total returns achieved by the S&P 500 and NASDAQ indexes. In September 2016, 'Real Estate' will become the eleventh investment sector tracked by Standard & Poor's—a watershed event that is already attracting new investors and greater fund flows into REITs. Investors need to learn how to invest wisely in this unique, new investment class. The Intelligent REIT Investor is the ultimate, clear, and concise guide for achieving investment success.

Using easy-to-understand language and simple examples to illustrate industry-specific concepts, The Intelligent REIT Investor enables even novice investors to quickly gain fluency in REIT industry terminology and valuation techniques. Moreover, because it focuses on the most pertinent risks and rewards of REIT investing, The Intelligent REIT Investor can be read cover-to-cover in a few hours.
