Real Estate Investment Trust

A Real Estate Investment Trust (REIT) is an entity that owns, operates, or finances income-generating commercial real estate assets. REITs pool the capital of numerous investors who do not have to purchase or manage the properties themselves. In exchange, the real estate investors in REITs earn dividends from their investments.

There are various types of REITs that are either publicly traded, privately traded, or privately held. REITs must follow specialized operating rules for receiving special tax advantages.
