About Real Estate Investment Trusts (REITs), (continued)

So what else are they all about?

Why do REITs sell properties?

Properties owned by the investment trusts are exited through a sale when it has been determined by management that the return on investment may be increased by selling the property and either purchasing another one or to strengthen the company balance sheet, have debt reduction, more liquidity or increase shareholder wealth by facilitating a share repurchase program.

Diversification involves buying into other Investment Trusts or properties specializing in apartment, industrial, self-storage, healthcare and other asset classes with a special emphasis on buying in different locations that utilize different professional management. All of this minimizes the impact that may be caused by similar Investment Trust systems or markets that will affect the rest of the investments  negatively.
