When are reits a bad investment?
- Ron AkiaLv 63 months ago
REIT's ed to be a bad investment as interest rates go down. In addition, currently owning REIT's in malls and shopping centers are a bad investment with store closings. There are other occasions also as I've just given a couple of examples. Overall, REIT's pay a high divided and are generally good investments.

reits are bad investments if they represent properties with few tenants or in areas with no potential for tenants; reits are also bad investments if interest rates suddenly rise and the value of the reit decreases to support the rising interest rates.
