“Check out that new type of online REIT investing, the stREITwise 1st Office REIT for advantages over listed real estate investment trusts. I love REIT investing as a way to diversify my direct real estate investments but for a fraction of the cost. With REITs, you get different property types across the country and professional management. Shares of REITs are traded just like stocks for low costs and cash dividends are received every quarter. ”  — Let’s Talk Money! with Joseph Hogue, CFA
