REIT ETF (Exchange-Traded Funds)
Exchange-traded funds that invest the majority of assets in equity REIT securities and related derivatives. REIT ETFs are passively managed around an index of publicly traded real estate owners; indexes may vary from provider to provider but two popular benchmarks are the MSCI U.S. REIT Index and the Dow Jones U.S. REIT Index, both of which cover about two-thirds of the aggregate value of the publicly-traded REIT market domestically. REIT ETFs are characterized by their above-average dividend yields. REIT securities have traits of both equities and fixed income securities; high dividend yields provide consistent income (REITS must pay out the majority of profits to investors each year), but valuations can swing along with the equity market. Investors should read prospectus materials closely when researching REIT ETFs; many different indexes with a variety of focuses (commercial mortgages, high-risk mortgages etc.) exist.
I have worked at Amanda Howard Real Estate for the past year, and it has been a phenomenal experience. From the exposure to young professionals performing at a high level, to assisting families in the purchase and sale of their dream homes, to the level of personal support and encouragement shown on a continual basis, my career is incredibly fulfilling!
I’ve never felt more taken care of in the process of selling my house. Thanks Michelle. You are a rose among real estate thorns! I can’t express my gratitude with words to describe how you’ve helped me with closing a chapter in my life with the sale of my late fathers house. Thank you.
We weren’t looking to buy a house, but I’m glad we came to Amanda Howard when we did. Whitney Stringer was a perfect fit for us! She listened to our concerns, answered our questions, and was patient and very professional. We looked at the house on 6/16, put in an offer on 6/17, and closed on 7/27. Everything went smoothly (and quickly). If we ever have to sell or buy again, we’d definitely go through AHRE!
Just bought a house with Glinda. She was great. Some tough situations came up, and she got us through everything. Helped us a find a place exactly like we wanted in the area we wanted too. Highly recommended
I just have one question…..”Do you know anyone in Huntsville, Alabama, that can sell a home within one week of listing it?” If so, use them. I used Amanda Howard, and my home had a contract on it within a week. Flawless performance and service.
Great new location AND I heard the owner was pretty kewl too! smile emoticon

I moved down here in April 2015 from New York and I did not know any one besides my brother. This company took me in and I consider them my second family. I have had numerous jobs in the past and this is by far the best company I have ever worked for. They also helped me purchase my first house for a great price and great conditions. Nothing but amazing this to say about this company!
Our agent, Natsuki Tani, worked PATIENTLY with us for over 3 months to help us find a great house.
