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.
Our agent, Natsuki Tani, worked PATIENTLY with us for over 3 months to help us find a great house.
Natalie Jones is amazing. She is extremely knowledgeable, professional, and lovely to deal with. She knows the Huntsville area market and will work very hard for you. Natalie always put our family needs first! She represented me in my first real estate auction experience. We won it and Natalie made it happen all the way through to closing, very smooth with no surprises. You can’t go wrong with Natalie and the Amanda Howard team of professionals.
Natsuki Tani was an outstanding buyer’s agent; the best I have ever worked with! From the moment I contacted Amanda Howard Real Estate and received my first phone call from Natsuki, she put me at ease with the buying process. She is so knowledgeable, always answered my questions thoroughly and provided great advice and guidance throughout the process. I was shopping for homes in Madison, Alabama while still living in Texas and …
Amanda Howard Real Estate was recommended by my granddaughter, who knew Amanda through her work activity. Her recommendation certainly held true. Michele Daymond surely stood up for the company. The entire force at Amanda Howard is involved, and they sold my condo in a matter of days!
Amanda Howard’s company is professional and hardworking. The integrity and work ethic is why they are so successful.
I’ve been part of Amanda Howard Real Estate for 8 years now and still love to come to work everyday. Amanda and Travis has created a great place to work, learn and grow. They continue to seek and search for bigger and better ways to grow the company as well as each of us individually. I don’t know of any other company that will invest the amount of time and money in their people like they do!
True professionals that are passionate about their business.
We used Whitney Stringer as our buying agent for purchasing our new home. Whitney, as well as the entire staff at Amanda Howard was very patient with all of our questions and kept us up to speed as we navigated this very complicated process. Overall, it was a relatively painless process, and we are very happy with our new home!
It was our first time buying a home and it was pleasant!
Natsuki and Clair were the best buyers and sellers agents I have ever worked with. They treated us like family. It was a truly pleasant experience. I definitely recommend Amanda Howard agency to anyone buying or selling a house.
