International REITs

Book Description

Dream of buying an apartment or landed property? What about a luxury shopping mall, office block or five-star hotel? Such dreams are completely possible and at not too expensive or far-fetched. With Real Estate Investment Trusts (REITs), you'll be able to invest in properties you never thought you could own. REITs derive income from top-notch properties around the world across various industries so buying into a REIT makes you an indirect landlord of their properties. If the REIT soars, you soar - and you don't have to be a millionaire to invest and to sweeten the deal, most REITs enjoy tax-free income. But to invest, you've got to know which REIT to pick. This book will equip you with the tools to evaluate any REIT you come across and simultaneously guide you through the major global markets. To seal the deal, the book will also reveal true stories from the investing world, so you can learn from the best and avoid the pitfalls.
