Southfield, MI (PressExposure) March 22, 2009 -- Earl E. Bird, III, spokes person for the REITbuyer.com, has cooperated in many interviews during the last couple of months. In his most recent interview, he was asked about the liquidity of REITs investments and the length of time oneâs money is tied up.
Earl said, âIn real estate purchasing, you are buying properties, committing to a long-term investment, mortgage or other financing terms and assuming responsibility for the upkeep of the properties. When investing in REITs, you are purchasing shares, like you would in the stock market. If you need cash or wish to no longer be a part of a REIT, you simply sell your shares as you would any other stock or mutual fund investment.â
Earl explained how REITs offer the same flexibility as any of the other markets, while at the same time offering the chance for a longer-term secured investment. âWhat I mean by secured investment is that for the most part real estate has some value,â Earl explained. âThough the value may fluctuate, it is a tangible asset that will retain value over the long term. With other stocks and mutual funds, if the company in which you purchase shares goes out of business, you can lose everything.â
When asked why people steer away from REITs, Earl answered, âBecause they are not a âmake money fastâ source of investment income. Most REITs will see regular, consistent returns in dividends, but not necessarily the big spikes where you can grab a big profit. Adding REITs to your stock portfolio will give you a more stable backbone to base your invest profile on.â
In addition to the above information provided by Earl, we also learned that one can add diversity to their real estate investment trusts by owning a variety of commercial, residential, US based and different trusts across the world and across all markets.
