What type of return does investing in real estate trusts usually garner? Say we start out with putting $10,000 in? We are self employed and although we have a mutual fund account it gets really scary with all the fluctuations. We need a savings that will have guaranteed growth and I think real estate trusts is the way to go.?
It really depends on the Real Estate Investment Trust and their investment strategies.
I personally invest with Rich Uncles REIT and they get about 6%-7% annualized returns but I know of someone else who invests in another and only sees 4%-5% returns.
I still am looking at investing in Fundrise and they advertise 8.7%-12.4% returns on their website.
It really just depends on the company...
