Real Estate Investment Trust
A Real Estate Investment Trust (REIT) is an investment pool which allows an investor to own the real estate as a shareholder of a corporation. REITs provide certain tax benefits and by law pay out most of their income to shareholders to avoid being taxed at the corporate level.
Limited Liability Companies
Limited Liability Companies (LLC) offer the members of a LLC ownership of real property, yet provides protection from liabilities related to the property. Much like a limited partnership, an LLC is typically not taxed at the entity level; therefore investors avoid taxation at both the entity and individual level.
Delaware Statutory Trust
A Delaware Statutory Trust (DST) is a form of real estate ownership by which investors own a beneficial interest in the DST which is a bankruptcy remote entity. Investors in the DST generally are shielded from liabilities with respect to the property. A DST may also permit a beneficiary to perform a tax free exchange on its pro rata share of the property when it is sold.
Tenant in Common
Tenant in Common (TIC) is a form of real estate ownership where a property owner holds title to an undivided fractional interest with other “co-owners” in a larger piece of property. TIC investments allow individual owners’ access to larger properties in which they may not have access to or the capital to buy on their own.
