Have you ever wished for the safety of bonds, but the return potential...
The residential real estate market may be capturing headlines with its red-hot growth, but the commercial real estate market is close behind. With the economy re-opening, rents have stabilized, and real estate investment trusts (REITs) have reported strong growth.
According to Nareit’s Quarterly REIT Performance Data, equity REITs grew at an 8.3% pace during the first quarter—their fastest rate since the second quarter of 2020. Retail and Lodging/Resorts outperformed Residential by more than 5% during the quarter, continuing their strong gains from the fourth quarter of 2020.
