  • Institutional investors eye REITs as channel to single-family housing
    REITs will attract more institutional investors seeking exposure to single-family housing especially as pricing solidifies, predicts David Lichtenstein of The Lightstone Group. "So the theory is that if housing has a floor under the pricing, the paper will trade better," he says. "The paper will be stronger and trade better."

  • Niche REIT sectors attract growing volume of investment
    More investors are moving into erstwhile "niche" REIT sectors such as self-storage and student housing. These sectors have yielded better returns than equity REITs in general. These sectors "produce yields that are 150 to 200 basis points higher than traditional property segments, so there is a very attractive risk-return proposition," says Christopher Merrill, CEO of Harrison Street Real Estate Capital.
