NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- In light of the illiquid attributes and up-front fees associated with the non-listed REIT sector, investors continue to pursue shares in real estate not directly correlated with the stock market. For many non-traded REIT investors, the attraction to the lower volatility and higher yields offered by these products outweigh the risks of higher up-front fees.This growing non-listed real estate sector, with approximate assets under management of around $70 billion, expects to raise around $18 billion in 2013 -- a 42% increase over the $10.3 billion raised in 2012. The significant evolution in this REIT sub-sector has been driven by the financial advisors and broker dealers who have embraced the product offerings and sponsors in an effort to diversify the number of available offerings.
