How about a REIT? What even are they? In a few words, it is an investment fund that invests resources into diversified real estate; bought properties are usually those intended to be rented out. It is a very interesting solution. We invest our money together with other investors. Definitely cheaper than buying independently because we can dedicate smaller capital towards it. We receive shares called participation units, which confirm that we have money deposited in the fund. The fund is valued, which means that its value is updated from time to time and we benefit from the increase in the valuation of the unit or, alternatively, we receive dividends paid out from time to time. So are there any risks? Unfortunately, yes. When we deposit money we are not guaranteed a profit or the deposit we put in. We also pay fees for participation or for the management of the fund by the institution that created it. This means that our expected returns will be reduced, sometimes significantly. On top of this, we have no certainty about the investment policy or any guarantees. In the worst case, we may lose our savings. This is an option worth considering, but it depends on the individual decision. There are many solutions available on the market based on real estate, however, their prevalence is not so high and they are treated as high-risk investments.
