During the recession and when interest rates were at zero, investors looking for income had to go into a variety of asset classes in order to get anything close to a real yield.

Thanks to their tax structure, real estate investment trusts (REITs) were one of the top sectors to seek income. After all, many REITs have yields in the 4 to 7% range.

However, the party appears to be over. As REITs were loved during the falling interest rate environment, they are absolutely loathed during the rising rate environment. Shares have been hit hard over the last few months.

But that could be the opportunity income seekers are waiting for.

It turns out, research shows that REITs actually do quite well during periods of higher rates. And that could make the sector a huge winner for those still struggling to find income solutions.
