In the face of the current economic climate, many people believe that anything related to real estate, the stock market and investing in general is poisoned water
New York City, NY - REITs and Real Estate Mutual Funds are an alternative way of investing in real estate. While it is true that the stock market and real estate investments have been through a hard time over the past year, there is a silver lining.
Earl E. Bird, III, spokesperson for REIT Buyer.com an online service for people to invest in real estate, was recently interviewed. He discussed the real estate market and how investing in REITs (Real Estate Investment Trusts) is a good opportunity to invest in real estate without the liability exposure and head aches of being a landlord.
Earl said, "While it is true that REITs had a rough year, there are still some of them out there that are getting a good return on their money. Look for preferred funds and take a close look at their track record. While they may not be making big double-digit gains right now, they are moving in a positive direction and some are also doing better than any other investment options you could be looking into. For example, some of the preferred REITs out there are seeing gains of 7, 9 or even up to 12 percent. That is much better than you are going to find in other offerings."
"Sure, times have changed," said Earl, "but as with everything else, this too shall pass. So, as you consider where you want to put your money, you may want to listen to the man who knows more about money than most of us, Donald Trump, who said, ‘What separates the winners from the losers is how a person reacts to each new twist of fate.' Essentially, we are in that time of reaction. You can let the credit crisis and last years tumbling investment market, stocks, funds and real estate prices get you down and they win or you can choose to pick yourself up and try again."
Earl Bird is confident that real estate values will rise again. As the interview was concluded, he said, "Real estate is always going to be hot. While things may be a little soft right now, there will always be people wanting to purchase new homes, others who are following their dreams and want to start a business of their own and those property investments that may be slow now will climb again. If you're vested with them that means those rises will translate to profits for you." Read more about REITs on Earl's blog at http://suntrustonlinebanking.blogspot.com
