Real estate is a tangible asset that has the potential to produce income and increase in value over time. Adding real estate to a portfolio helps investors increase their diversification and allows them to participate in a market cycle that can complement the stock and bond market. Real estate investments can help investors preserve capital, stay ahead of inflation, generate income, and create capital appreciation.
When considering an investment in a real estate through securities, investors may choose between various investment types, including un-listed real estate funds (such as those offered by Hilton Head Investments) and listed REITs (i.e., REITs with shares traded on the New York Stock Exchange, the American Stock Exchange, The Nasdaq Stock Market, or another securities exchange or quotation system).
