The real estate sector is an excellent place to look for stocks with above-average dividends that also have strong long-term growth potential. That's especially true for equity real estate investment trusts (REITs). Now may be a good time to consider adding an equity REIT or two to your portfolio, as many have been beaten down recently as a result of rising interest rates. With that in mind, here are five of the top equity REITs, all of which pay dividend yields of 4% or more and trade for attractive valuations...

Realty Income (O) specializes in freestanding net-lease retail properties and has more than 4,900 properties leased to 250 commercial tenants, most of which are engaged in competition-resistant or recession-resistant businesses. Mall REIT Simon Property Group (NYSE:SPG) is the largest REIT of any kind, and you may know the company's branded mall properties that go by the names Premium Outlets and The Mills. Iron Mountain (NYSE:IRM) specializes in records and data storage and serves more than 220,000 customers, including 94% of the Fortune 1000, in over 1,400 facilities worldwide. Leading healthcare REIT Welltower (NYSE:HCN) owns just over 1,414 properties, about 70% of which are senior housing facilities, some of which are leased to tenants and some of which are operated as partnerships. Apple Hospitality REIT (NYSE:APLE) is a hotel REIT that invests in properties under various Hilton and Marriott brand names.
