It is obvious that there are multiple investment opportunities that investors can consider. However, Real Estate Investment Trusts, which is abbreviated as REITs is capturing the imagination of a huge number of investors. Michael Nierenberg, who happens to the face behind the growth and success of New Residential Investment Corp. has for the last few years justified why it is important to invest in REITs. He has gone further to highlight all the benefits associated with these investment opportunities and why individuals should consider them.
However, Michael Nierenberg does not encourage investors to just invest in the real estate investment trusts without acquiring knowledge and skills, most of which can be offered by various experts in the industry. He notes that there are multiple number of real estate trusts that an individual can consider if he/she is interested in investing and generating huge returns. One of the mostly known and recommended REIT is the publicly traded equity REITs. According to Michael Nierenberg, most of the REITs available in the industry are publicly traded. However, most of the publicly traded REITs are very useful as they generate much needed profit and revenues.
Michael Nierenberg continues to highlight that most of the real estate properties are owned and operated by the publicly traded equity REITs. Therefore, if you are considering to invest in any area, you should have significant considerations and analysis of the publicly traded properties. However, there are other opportunities in the industry that individuals should consider. Mortgage REITs are investment opportunities that concentrate on buying existing mortgages or any other mortgage backed security. This means that their industry is highly influenced and moderated by what is happening in the mortgage sector.
Public Non-Listed REITs are other investment opportunities that Michael Nierenberg has touched on several times. He notes that these are investment opportunities that individuals should consider. However, it would be important to note that these investment are not traded in the stock exchanges but they are registered with other governing bodies such as Securities Exchange Commission. Investors can also choose to channel their resources into private REITs, which are not registered in the national stock but are regulated by the concerned authorities.
