Non-Traded Real Estate Investment Trusts (Non-Traded REITs) are a way to invest in commercial real estate without a large outlay of capital, or assuming the majority of the investment risk, as you would if you were to purchase commercial property in a traditional real estate transaction.
Characteristics of a Non-Traded REITs
Since Non-Traded REITs are not traded on a secondary market, a Non-Traded REIT can behave more like a direct real estate investment, and their share price value does not change as frequently as a publicly traded stock. Although a Non-Traded REIT is not traded on an exchange its value can still be affected by economic changes, real estate market changes, and changes in interest rates. Also, the values of underlying properties will fluctuate and may be worth more or less than than initially paid. Additionally, there is no guarantee the investment objectives will be met.
