The Best REIT ETFs

The table below compares the performance and other essential indicators like dividend yield and expense ratio of 48 REIT ETFs.

REIT ETFs are exchange-traded funds that invest in real estate investment trusts (REITs). REITs are companies that own and manage income-producing real estate properties, such as office buildings, apartments, shopping centers, and warehouses. These companies are required to distribute at least 90% of their taxable income to shareholders as dividends, making REITs a popular investment vehicle for generating revenue.

REIT ETFs provide investors with a way to gain exposure to the real estate market without purchasing individual REIT stocks or properties. In addition, they can offer diversification benefits, as the performance of REITs may not be closely correlated with the overall stock market. Finally, REIT ETFs offer liquidity, transparency, and lower management costs compared to traditional real estate investments.
