Real Estate Investment Trusts (REITs)

Real Estate Investment Trusts or REITs are a powerful and little known gem of an asset class that doesn’t even pop up on the radar of most property investors. Yet, it is one of the most profitable, accessible and affordable asset class to get involved in.

Why Consider Investing in Real Estate Investment Trusts - Especially in a Post Covid World

Investing in real estate is a safe way to make a long-term investment. This market typically carries profitable returns and allows you to diversify your portfolio if you’ve already invested in stocks and bonds.

However, investing in traditional real estate isn’t like trading regular financial products. Owning a property means you’ll have to pay taxes, cover maintenance costs, manage it, and put in many hours as a landlord. Besides, real estate isn’t liquid and carries some risks, since so much money is likely tied up in your property.

REITs Offer Access To The Real Estate Market Without Ever Buying The Property Itself

A Real Estate Investment Trust, or REIT, is an investment trust company that purchases properties.

The company that manages the fund takes care of maintaining the properties, managing, and renting them. Up to 90% of the profit from such activities is then distributed to shareholders who invested in the trust company.

By investing a publicly trading REITs an investor can have a stake in the Properties owned by the REIT, without ever owning the property itself or getting caught up in all the costs that come with owning a property.

Key Reasons Why You Should Consider Real Estate Investment Trusts (REITs)

If you’re new to real estate and aren’t sure how to find good investment properties, buying shares in a publicly traded REIT might be a fantastic way to get started in the world of property.

This is all the more true in a post Covid-19 world where delays with housing market data make it harder for investors to truly understand which way the property market is likely to go.

Because REITs are traded on the public stock exchange and because stock exchanges trade in real time, investors have a much better view of the direction a REIT stock is trending and thereby have the ability to either speculate or simply deploy the Dividend Capture Strategy.

There are several advantages to adding shares of one or more REITs to your portfolio:

Given what’s unfolding now in the aftermath of the Covid-19 crisis, political and economic rhetoric is likely to create significant volatility in the markets.

Because REITs are a real-time trading instrument on the stock exchange, if you know how to speculate, there’s significant money to be made.

REITs traditionally offer higher Yield (usually around 7-9%) than traditional rental income properties (usually around 4-6%). With bank interest rates so low, there’s little point in keeping your money in a savings account.

With REITs you can a way of putting your savings to good use – even if its only a small amount and not enough to make up the deposit for buying a property.

REITs provide you with a regular income without having to actively manage your investments

For example, you can find REITs that give you exposure to industrial real estate, commercial projects such as malls, office buildings, or residential buildings.

Building such a diverse portfolio while actually holding properties is very difficult and takes years.

You can sell your shares or decide to invest in more at any time.

While products such as bonds typically lose some of their value when interest rates go up, REITs tend to gain value.

High interest rates mean the economy is in good shape, which results in higher rent, higher occupancy rates for residential rental properties, and high demand for commercial and industrial properties.

The wide range of REITs makes it easy for you to build a diverse portfolio.

You can invest in several different types of properties and gain exposure to real estate markets both in the country and abroad.

Introducing the REIT Masters Course

This course was developed in response to the Covid-19 Crisis and is part of our Crisis Investing Course Bundle, but also available on its own as a specialist module that can be added onto any other property investing course from Property Magnets

This is the very first lesson in the REIT Masters course and is designed to familiarise you with the concept of Real Estate Investment Trusts at a high level.

This lesson is all about using a speculative approach to trading REITs on the stock exchange. You will learn about charting basics and identifying key metrics such as trends, support & resistance lines and more.

The idea being, if you can understand the trajectory a market is taking, then you can be in and out of a trade (in the right direction) with multiple opportunities to make a profit from trading REITs using a speculative approach.

All Real Estate Investment Trusts pay dividends on a specific schedule. This lesson is going to help y9u understand how that works and how you can use the Dividend Capture Strategy to create a regular cash-flow income from the dividends paid out by  REITs.

This lesson is all about showing you how REITs behave in everyday market conditions and what drives that behavior.

Knowing how to analyse the REIT in real time market conditions is a key aspect of being able to take advantage of the profitability of REITs.

It is imperative to know how to assess the strength and stability of REITs before you consider investing in them. It is for this reason, the REIT Masters course covers this aspect in details over 3 lessons.

In the second part of the due diligence lessons, you will learn about analysing balance sheets, looking at financial statements and making sense of what common acronyms such as FFO, AFFO, NAV, DPU etc. mean.

In this final lesson in due diligence series, you will learn about how to run the numbers on the fly with REITs. We will cover things such as Cap Rates, various analysis methods through a few example scenarios.

REITs are a great example of how to use OPM (other people’s money) to grow a portfolio. Understanding how they do it, is key to knowing when and how you should participate in new issues when they are announced by REITs from time to time.

Contracts for Difference (CFDs) are a powerful way for anyone to get into the trading floor of this opportunity with REITs. A CFD allows anyone (with an online brokerage account) to be able to trade shares in a company listed on the stock exchange without ever owning the share itself.

Indices are an everyday part of capital markets but they are not very well understood by most investors. Add to that, the fact that some markets offer REIT indices (such as the ASX), the opportunity to diversity the portfolio becomes even greater.

We have included a section of case studies to help investors understand and go through the entire journey, from identifying to analysing a REIT.

In the Australian REIT case study, we look at Scentre Group, a well known REIT in Australia that owns all the Westfield Shopping Centers across Australia and New Zealand.

For New Zealand REITs we look at Kiwi Property Group, a very well known Real Estate Investment Trust Company that owns iconic shopping malls such as the famous Sylvia Park in Auckland and The Base inn Hamilton.

In this section we look at some of the tools you will need to become familiar with before you can start trading REITs.

We also provide some insights and checklists to help you identify the right brokers in your country.

As with all our other courses, the REIT Masters course also comes with mock deals. This is where you will have the chance to practice your trading strategies with someone from the Property Magnets team and validate all that you would have learnt up until this point in the journey.
