Real Estate

Real Estate Investment Trusts, also known as "REITS", are a way for investors to invest in real estate projects that might be beyond their own purchasing ability.

Murphree Investment Group offers both non-traded and publicly traded REITs along with leasing opportunities in multiple sectors. Our philosophy is to use REITs (Real Estate Investment Trusts) as a vehicle to include Real Estate in our portfolio allocations so as to broadly diversify client’s asset holdings.

A Real Estate Investment Trust or REIT is a tax designation for a corporation investing in real estate that reduces or eliminates corporate income taxes. In return, REITs are required to distribute 90% of their income, which may be taxable, into the hands of the investors. The REIT structure was designed to provide a similar structure for investment in real estate as mutual funds provide for investment in stocks. Like other corporations, REITs can be publicly or privately held. Public REITs may be listed on public stock exchanges like shares of common stock in other firms. Investing in REITs involves special risks such as potential illiquidity and may not be suitable for all investors. There is no assurance that the investment objectives of the program will be attained.
