REITs Continue Buying US Real Estate But Are Not Selling

By:

 

Listed REITs purchased $44.6 billion worth of assets in 2017 through Oct. 23,this figure is comparable to the  $47.9 billion worth of assets purchased in 2016.

Changes show however on the sales side as REITs sold $46.7 billion in assets thus far in 2017 through Oct. 23, compared to $71 billion for the full year 2016. REITs have additional challenges in that they must reallocate the proceeds of sales quickly which can cause hesitation in a market where there aren't many attractive assets to purchase.
