What is a REIT?

A Real Estate Investment Trust or REIT operates similarly to how a mutual fund works. Here, retail investors give money to a fund manager, in this case, a REIT manager who then does the job of finding and investing in good income-producing properties. The bundle mainly consists of commercial properties although managers can also look at hospitals, malls, and even residential spaces. These properties earn rental income for the REIT which is then transferred to investors in the form of dividends and that’s pretty much how a REIT operates.

A REIT makes investing in commercial real estate a lot more affordable. It simplifies investing and one doesn’t need to maintain the property or pay taxes on it, and they are managed professionally. Most importantly, the Securities & Exchange Board of India, SEBI regulates and monitors REITs in India

Units in REITs can be bought or sold in the secondary market via any trading platform. It works a lot like how a share is bought and with the buying quantity now reduced down to just 1, you can invest in real estate via REITs starting at just around INR 10000 – INR 15000.
