Real Estate Investment Trusts coming back into Vogue

Good to be back to Big Bear from Oahu, time to write and this is a little bit off topic, sorry about that…Oshrat Carmiel and Margaret Collins write that mutual funds that invest in U.S. real estate investment trusts are pulling in the most new capital since 2006 from buyers look for yield.
Incidentially for those considering some Big Bear real estate properties I can certainly endorse this top realty firm over there…
Carmiel and Collins note that, “Investors have added (nearly four billion) to Real estate investment trusts (so far) this year, stated a September 8 report done by none other than the highly respected in the industry Citigroup Global Markets, a unit of New York-based Citigroup Inc. Assets in the funds, including exchange-traded funds, are at a record (almost one hundred) billion……”
They quote Real estate investment trust strategist at Chicago-based research firm Morningstar Inc, Philip Martin, as saying, “Real estate investment trusts are (in and of themselves) attracting attention (due to the passive) income, the dividend yield (which is sometimes nearly twenty-five percent or so), and the fact that Real estate investment trusts do (in fact have some) hard assets, which offer inflation protection.” If you are in the state of Hawaii and are looking to obtain some quality Oahu Real estate then I can definetely suggest this company, Sotheby’s along with the other aforementioned realty firm in Big Bear, California.
Carmiel and Collins also cite Michael Bilerman, head of the real estate and lodging team at Citi Investment Research & Analysis and author of the firm’s Sept. 8 report, as saying that“ (real estate investment trusts) could continue (on this road for a while longer)..it will be interesting to see if this particular trend does indeed continue on.
