Investors who don’t understand real estate should steer away from REIT products because the lack of transparency and high commissions or management fees leads to many bad actors entering the marketplace. Ultimately, investors have no way to get out of the REIT even after the misconduct is exposed because of the lack of a marketplace.
If an investor is considering buying a non-traded REIT, they should consider who conducted due diligence on the investment and whether their broker or someone else is receiving substantial compensation for recommending a non-traded REIT. It is one of the highest commission products on Wall Street today.
