The projected return on investment in REIT is between 8% to 14% annually with minimum risks. REITs are less volatile than the stock market, FDs, mutual funds and gold because as per regulations 80% of the REITs must be of rent-generating assets.

The rents for properties owned by REIT are very likely to rise steadily over the years. This is similar to owning a property, earn the rentals and enjoy the appreciation in the property prices.

A realistic return on investment expectation would be in the range of 7-8% annually, after adjusting the fund management fee. Investors can earn two types of income from REITs; through capital gains on the sale of REIT units and a dividend income.

Is dividend from ReIT tax free or otherwise.

No, dividend from ReIT is not tax-free. No special tax relief is given to ReITs by the government.

The ReIT dividend income is considered as a regular flow of income. It is the similar way the dividends from stocks are paid and taxed.
