What Does This Mean?
Non-traded REITs, or real estate investment trusts, are privately traded securities not sold on any public exchanges. Because of this, they are very poorly regulated and can very easily be misrepresented to investors. While many securities brokers try to present these products as safe and lucrative, nothing could actually be further from the truth. In reality, non-traded REITs are incredibly risky investments that are highly illiquid. They are also accompanied by outrageously high upfront fees that greatly diminish the value of the investor’s principal. Non-traded REITs are very rarely suitable for investors–especially for those with more conservative objectives and higher liquidity needs.
