Non-traded Real Estate Investment Trusts (REITs)

Have you suffered losses investing in Non-traded real estate investment trust (REIT)?

These investments are a legitimate investment option for the right investor. REITs capitalize on tax law and often provide the smaller investor with an opportunity to invest in commercial real estate.

However, non-traded real estate investment trusts (REITs) are not for everyone. There are a few problems with these investments that make them unsuitable for retired investors or investors needing an income stream.

Non-traded REITs are not traded on any stock exchange and are generally illiquid – making them difficult to sell if needed. Additionally, non-traded REITs are less regulated than other types of investments like stocks, bonds, or mutual funds, increasing the likelihood of fraud with respect to the REITs themselves.

Further, these investments often pay a high commission to the financial professional – up to as much as 15%, which may sometimes explain the broker’s motivation in recommending the product. Finally, non-traded REITs invest entirely in one sector (real estate), exposing an investor to the risks of the real estate market if the investor is not well diversified in his or her other investments

The White Law Group is currently representing investors in many FINRA claims involving non-traded REITs.
