Best Fit Real Estate Funds

Real estate funds invest in real estate investment trusts (REITs), which invest in and own commercial real estate properties. Generally, a REIT offers a high yield because it's required to distribute a large amount of its taxable income to its shareholders in the form of a dividend.

All ranked ETFs meet our Best Fit criteria.
