Diversifying into real-estate investment trusts (REITs). Safe? Effective?

In today’s world, it is challenging to find securities that produce decent income. One category of investments that has attracted billions this year is REITs. They own and operate residential and commercial income-producing properties.

As we frequently state, historically, 1.) over the long term, 2.) properly selected US market index exchange-traded funds, 3.) held in tax-advantaged accounts, 4.) in an appropriate asset allocation, have been the investors best way for growing savings and are likely to remain so for many years.

The US market index exchange-traded funds we talk about track the S&P 500.  The S&P 500 is up 20% this year. That rate of growth is as staggering as it is unsustainable. Leading REITs are up close to 30%! Millions of people are jumping on board.

Is that safe? Is it effective?
