Everyone has their own view on what REITs to buy. This article in Advise for Investors was reprinted from an article in their Investor’s Digest of Canada. However, note that this article was published in January of this year before lockdown.
A lot of people have been recently talking negatively about REITs that have apartment buildings, retail space and office spaces. Divya Balji on Bloomberg has a more recent April 2020 on Canadian REITs and their problems. Also, Joey Frenette in March on Motley Fool talks about why you should buy SmartCentres REIT (TSX:SRU.UN).
The REIT Report has put out a Canadian REITs Report. On this page you will find all the Canadian REITs and their profile. The profile here is what sector they are in such as Offices, Hotels, Residential, Diversified, Retail, Healthcare or Industrial. The Blogger Dividend Earner has a January article about Canadian REITs and he talks about the best REITs and the ones on the Aristocrat list.
I have some REITs. I bought them for some diversification. I do not own any property at the present time. I may or may not buy a condo at some point. I used to have a cottage, but most of my adult live I have rented and I am quite happy to do so.
