This was exactly what I was looking for!Great book for new REITs investors, highly recommended. The book provides valuable knowledges via an approachable language and explanation. Some times, some historical stories are a bit long, but if you have the time they prove to provide solid in understanding for the current state of REITs. For some deep concepts, I suggest that you should re read the Definition online to fully understand before continue with the book contents.
I read this in an effort to broaden and improve my investing skills. REITs, or Real Estate Investment Trusts, are like mutual funds of real-estate assets (typically this means either managed properties or mortgage notes), and Investing in REITs explains just about everything one might want to know about the subject. This includes a formal definition of REITs, coverage of the different types of REITs, and how to decide whether a particular REIT is a good investment and what its fair value should
I picked up this book because there are not very many books about this subject and I had the impression this must be a well-written book for the fact it is the 4th edition of the title. Unfortunately, I found this book very wordy, repetitive, boring, and harder to decipher than some of the legal documents and texts I had read in the past. The author warns at the beginning that the book is written for professional people; however, the concepts and the subject matters explained the book are pretty...
Un libro che poteva essere scritto con un terzo di pagine in meno senza tralasciare nessun concetto importante. Nonostante la lunghezza è molto superficiale, nel senso che dà molte nozioni senza entrare mai più di tanto nel dettaglio e quindi senza spiegare bene. Alla fine della lettura non mi ha lasciato molto
Very In-depth knowledge This book provided more than enough background information on REIT investing. If you are seeking a knowledge regarding this subject you will find this book worthy of your time.
I learned a bit. Mostly, I learned to stick with mutual funds or ETFs.
Good Insights on US based REIT market performance in past 25 years.
A decent coverage of the field. I would recommend.
Author does an excellent job of explaining the various types of property REITs and providing a historical background of how they have performed in the general context of the economy. He also explains the pros and cons of investing in each in simple terms for someone who isn't a professional investor.
Reads a little like an academic textbook but otherwise is a good introduction to REITs. Offers a global perspective on the topic with discussions of listings in countries such as Hong Kong and Singapore.
EXHAUSTIVE review of REITS. Somewhat repetitive but really covers the landscape. I feel like my knowledge of REITS has made a huge jump. Best for those looking beyond just a basic understanding.
a decent book on REIT.
Pretty useful overview on REIT investing, but any tax related information is very US centric.
Great overview on how a REIT works.
A great intro to the world of REITS. I am halfway done and have learned quite a bit. If you are interested, it would be worth your time to pickup.
