Eh... Everyone got burned in 2007-09lol NOT just Real Estate investors Thanks for the heads up though.
And btw, most REITs invest in Agency Backed Securities (backed by FNMA, GNMA). These quasi public entities guarantee pmt of principal and interest to investors. In my case, I get the dividends monthly and do NOT reinvest. Cash is king, baby!
