The REIT Way to Hook a 5% Dividend Yield

Unless you are Warren Buffett or Donald Trump, it's hard to get broad access to real estate ownership by purchasing individual shopping centers or medical office buildings. By owning REITs, an investor can gain access to a diverse group of asset sectors and geographies.

REITs are also exceptional risk managers, and there is no substitute for investing in a company that can control risk.

There's no better time than now. Jump in and load up your REIT basket with some attractively priced shares. Rest assured, that's the REIT way to sleep well at night.
