I’m a big believer in real estate. Have been since my first job as a commercial property analyst but real estate stocks haven’t lived up to their promise of safety in the stock market crash. The Vanguard Real Estate Fund is actually down more than the stock market!
But there are REITs that are beating the market and stocks you should have on your radar for the long-term. In this video, I’ll show you why real estate stocks are falling. We’ll look at the REIT returns by property type and the outlook on 10 REIT property types over the next year. I’ll then reveal three REITs to watch and three to avoid.
Just like in stock investing, sometimes investing in the entire REIT class isn’t the best option. The property types react differently to the economy and the losers have pulled down even the best performing real estate investments. You need to know how to pick the best REITs and how to avoid the worst.
REITs I’m buying include those related to the digital space including data centers and cell tower REITs. REITs I’m watching are those in healthcare and residential. Real estate stocks I’m avoiding are any with property in hotel, retail or mortgage REITs.
So while I usually recommend the broad real estate funds like the Vanguard REIT here on the channel, the current market environment means you really need to dig into those individual property types for real estate returns. That real estate ETF may still do well over the long-term because eventually some of the hardest-hit properties will rebound but why not invest in the best now and then pick up the lagging stocks when the time is better?
