In 2020, the real estate sector suffered a significant loss as a result of pandemic-related limitations. According to a McKinsey & Company research, commercial real estate transactions in the United States fell 57% in the third quarter of 2020 compared to the same time in 2019.
On the other hand, real estate equities have long been a popular option among investors due to their endurance and resilience. The S&P 500 Real Estate Index has returned 9.31% in the last ten years, virtually identical to the overall market. Real estate equities are attractive to investors because of their long-term prospects. Investors can earn from rental income and other associated ways if they choose wise assets. In particular, REITs (Real Estate Investment Trusts) are seen as a haven against inflation and may help investors diversify their equity holdings.
With falling interest rates and a robust vaccination procedure, the real estate or REITs industry is crawling back to pre-pandemic levels. In 2021, the Financial Times Stock Exchange All Equity REITs index returned at 23.6%. In Q2 2021, commercial real estate in the United States exceeded pre-pandemic levels, with investors purchasing commercial buildings worth $144.7 billion, more than doubling the amount purchased in the same time the previous year. Similarly, retail REITs gained 35.9% in the first half of 2021, and the funds from operations, or FFO, from this sector, increased to 5.6% in Q1 2021.
The real estate sector is red hot on Wall Street at the moment, for showing incredible results for both the month of August and 2021 as a whole. Let’s look at just a few of the real estate stocks that the experts call smart picks for your portfolio…
