A REIT or Real Estate Investment Trust is a company that many use their invested money in real estate. This money can be used to purchase commercial and residential properties. Some Reit's will also finance real estate.
Most Reit's that we are aware of are traded on the stock market publicly. To be considered a Reit the company must distribute 90% of the money they receive in real estate.
Stock holders in a Reit are paid from the dividends of the stock just as other stock may pay out but the stock is secured by real estate.
Reit's can come in three forms:
1) Publicly Traded Reit's (they are on the stock market)
2) Non-Exchange Reit's (they are regestered like stock but not traded publicly.
3) Private Reit's (we can create these)
