Should You BUY REITS in 2021? Top REITs to BUY
Over the past year, REITs have fallen over 50% in value from the highs. REITs that owned
apartment buildings, shopping malls, hotels, or office buildings, investors got worried about
collecting rent. Many people think that REITs will not recover for years, but I think differently.
I think a 50% sell-off brings an opportunity for the investor. I think that some REITs will take
some time to recover but if you understand the REITs holding you will be fine and still make
some money. Some REITs have outperformed the major indexes.
