The Problem with Non-traded REITs
Investors looking to sell a non-traded REIT investment often have difficulty finding a buyer, and can suffer significant losses on the sale.
Currently shares of Lightstone Value Plus REIT III are listed for sale for just $5.00 per share on Central Trade & Transfer, a secondary market place for non-traded REITs and other alternative investments. This may indicate losses for investors as the original offering price was $10.00 per share.
Non-traded REITs, like Lightstone, involve a much greater degree of risk compared to traditional investments, such as stocks, bonds or mutual funds. These types of investments are more complex, lack liquidity and therefore better suited for sophisticated and institutional investors.
Broker dealers are required to perform adequate due diligence on any investment they recommend and to ensure that all recommendations are suitable for the investor in light of the investor’s age, risk tolerance, net worth, and investment experience.
If a brokerage firm makes unsuitable investment recommendations or fails to adequately disclose the risks associated with an investment they may be liable for investment losses.
