Real estate is a huge industry all over the world. With 335,000 companies in the industry, the US real estate industry generates annual revenue of $380 billion. Demand for real estate is powered by the growth in population, income growth, employment growth and access to capital. As people keep migrating from one place to the other for reasons like employment, the demand for real estate is constantly felt in urban cities. Urban cities have a high demand for office spaces and commercial spaces.

Investing in real estate requires a significant amount of capital. You can get a return from your real estate investment through leasing and capital appreciation. Not many people have that much amount of capital to invest in real estate. For them, an easy way is to invest in stocks of companies dealing in real estate. They are also known as real estate investment trusts or REITs. Often compared to mutual funds, they are generally dividend-paying stocks. These companies own commercial real estate like office buildings, retail spaces, hotels, etc and generally pay high dividends. You can reinvest your dividends to make your investment grow.
