How REITs Work


A Real Estate Investment Trust, or REIT, is a tax-advantaged company that owns income-producing properties and distributes the cash flow to investors in the form of dividends.

Two Types of REITs: Traded and Non-Traded

Traded REITs are subject to the volatility of the stock market since they’re listed on a major stock exchange (like the NYSE or Nasdaq). Non-Traded REITs are not subject to the same volatility. Traded REITs are priced at a “liquidity premium,” thus offering a LOWER dividend.  Non-Traded REITs are not, and can generally offer HIGHER dividends.

Streitwise is a Non-Traded REIT.


Typical Non-Traded REIT Fee Structure

Non-Traded REITs usually charge high fees because their shares are sold through middlemen. Upfront costs alone can total as much as 15% of the original investment.

Streitwise avoids middlemen, so we only charge 3%.
