Reits

Working through REITS. The risk seems pretty high still, higher than stocks in my mind. I can see if a certain product is being sold or marketed, but real estate investment- not so much. I "hear" that is coming back- but it doesn't seem like it. People are gaining jobs again, but local businesses are still lean. I hear it in Phoenix, Vegas and even here.

Trying to balance a portfolio for retirement is harder than I thought. Sometimes I need to step back and see that half of my investments are already in real estate- my house and land.
Now, if my friend goes into farming full time- that is something I could invest in.
