REIT or Real Estate Investment Trusts are an investment vehicle generally high on dividend type returns with tax benefits. This would not be something a "real estate agent" would necessarily need to be involved in or not anymore than anyone else would.

Class is in session and Fred Griffin comes through(once again) with the link that you and fellow students will find most helpful.  

By the way:  you can save a lot of time by following Fred(but not in that weird kinda stalking method) so he will get some extra points for the answers he provides.

Your teacher tries confuse you. Mutual fund=REIT

Many questions are obsolete which I wonder how many student ever pass their license exam. For one thing realtors do not do loans. Water rights in Utah means nothing out of the area.  No offense.

Brian,

Please look it up in previous questions as I answered this.  Or do what I would have done, go to Google and research it.  As a beginner, you will not be dealing with REITS  You will find that when you look it up, the answer will be retained by you much better.  A

Everyone who believes real estate is a good investment should own a few REIT's.  My holding have perfermed well. Your stock broker can fix you up. Your real estate agent will be of no help.

Only those who work with investors and they still don't get 'involved' with them. I say, fire your instructor - there are FAR more important things for you to learn than this!
