Watch Yourself In Private REITs

Real estate has long been a great place for investors to find income and non-correlated returns for their portfolios. Historically, investing in real estate either meant buying a building or two outright or investing in publicly traded real estate investment trusts (REITS). Both offer plenty of pros and cons. There is a third choice, designed to bridge the gap between the two: private real estate funds.

These non-publicly traded REITs are designed to be long-haul vehicles, offering the benefits of owning a commercial building outright with the liquidity of publicly traded REITs.

That’s the theory anyway. But the recent real estate downturn is throwing some cold water on the private real estate market. All in all, it is a case of history repeating itself, and investors may want to consider other options when investing in the space.
