REITs are a great way for the individual investor to add real estate exposure to their portfolio without all the hassles that come along with being a landlord. Because of the specific federal rules under which they are organized, REITs offer big advantages for income investors. REITs are required to pay out 90% of their annual earnings to investors and they are exempt from federal corporate taxes, meaning that dividends are taxed as ordinary income. Steady and predictable rent payments also are an attractive quality because cash flow tends to be more stable than is often the case with other types of investments

Still, investors looking for winners in this year’s REIT rebound might find greater opportunity on the road less traveled: specialty or niche REITs. Fortunately, there are some good REIT opportunities to be found in strange places. Here are 3 odd, high-yielding REITs to play the real estate rebound: Omega Healthcare Investors (OHI), EPR Properties (EPR) and Digital Realty Trust (DLR).
