Frequently Asked Questions About Real Estate Investment Trusts
The following are some frequently asked questions about real estate investment trusts:

What is a real estate investment trust?
A real estate investment trust is a corporation that focuses on capitalizing off of property transactions. In other words, these companies make a business out of investing in real estate. Tax regulations require that a business classified as a REIT has to distribute nearly all, or about 90 percent, of its taxable income to its investors.

How do real estate investment trusts earn money?
One way in which REITs earn money is by owning real estate that generates an ongoing profit, like buildings for commercial use and other locations that are typically rented out. Businesses that turn a profit through rent money are known as equity REITs. Mortgage REITs focus on loaning potential property owners the money they need to purchase a home. The loan is secured by the title to the property. There are also hybrid REITs, which combine the practices of both equity and mortgage REITs.

How does a REIT differ from traditional real estate investing?
A real estate investment trust is a cumulative venture. This makes it a lot like a mutual fund. There are numerous investors who pool their money together to invest in property. This means that a REIT may be easier to invest in because participants may not need as much money to begin with as they would with many other investments. Having multiple shareholders reduces the financial risk that one person has to face when investing alone. Additionally, investment companies with many shareholders are able to diversify their investments more, which also help decrease investment risks. This does mean that any profit is shared among the investors, though.

When choosing the best real estate investment trust (REIT) or investment agent, research the company's background carefully, noting how long the entity has been in business, any affiliations, and contact information. Visit with a few companies to see which one can meet your needs. Keep in mind that there are three different types of REITs: mortgage, equity, and hybrid. REITs are essentially a tax designation for a corporation that chooses to invest in real estate through loans or cash. Consider which type of REIT is right for you and your business. Real estate can include rental property, land purchase, capital, developments, office parks, and malls. Sometimes, real estate is sold through foreclosure at a bargain profit at auction. Make sure you do your research beforehand on how a real estate investment trust can take, hold, and dispose of any estate or interest in property in its name; find out how REITs work and typical return on investment (ROI); learn about publicly and privately held companies as well as loans; find out about investor ownership and management; check out the state of the market value today; learn about seller financing for property and private mortgages; find out how REITs loan money for mortgages and loans; learn about due diligence and attorneys; and look into how REITs might be a solid income source for your business. Check out the company's physical location. Speak with investment agents and advisers to get a feel for the company and what it offers. Are they courteous and on time? Do they reflect a positive business attitude? If so, it may be a good fit. Ask whether the company is local, national or international, with several offices or one.
