Earn a Safe 9.5% Yield From Real Estate

Posted by D4L | Sunday, July 08, 2018 | | 0 comments »

Income investors are no strangers to real estate. By being a successful landlord, an investor can collect a steady stream of monthly rental income. But being a landlord is not all about sitting back and enjoying the checks rolling in. Sometimes, it takes weeks or even months to find the right tenant. Moreover, fixing leaky faucets and chasing late payments are never a fun experience. In most U.S. markets, a landlord would be considered lucky if they can earn a capitalization rate of more than six percent. With REITs, the income stream could be much more substantial.

For instance, Select Income REIT (NASDAQ:SIR) makes quarterly dividend payments of $0.51 per share. Trading at $21.48 apiece, the company offers an annual dividend yield of 9.5%. Still, not all REITs are slam dunks. Just like you need to verify a potential tenant’s credit history, income, and employment status, you should also check a REIT’s fundamentals before putting in a buy order. Headquartered in Newton, Massachusetts, Select Income REIT owns and operates a portfolio of 366 buildings, leasable land parcels, and easements located across 36 states. These properties total approximately 45.5 million rentable square feet.
