Real estate is an exceptional asset for savvy investors.
While everyone else is chasing bond prices higher (and thus getting lower yields), smart investors are turning to the top-performing asset class of the last 20 years.
Real estate – despite economic headwinds – continues to generate incredible cash flows and appreciation upside for anyone seeking an "alternative" investment.
Of course, ordinary investors might not have hundreds of thousands if not millions sitting around to buy property or tap into hedge funds and other strategies that require the designation of an "accredited investor."
But there is one unique way to invest in real estate, and the upside for these investments is immense.
That's through real estate investment trusts (REITs).
The Best REIT to Buy for 2020: Our top REIT pick could climb to five times its current price – and these shares yield a solid 7.9%, too. Get the pick now…
These publicly traded vehicles provide steady dividends by generating income from working real estate assets.
Even better – as the Fed prepares to cut rates, REITs historically outperform in periods of low-interest rates.
To find the best REIT to buy now, I use something called the Money Morning Stock VQScore™.
This proprietary system tracks the most profitable REITs on the market and assigns each a score from 0 to 4.9.
That rating tells you whether shares are a "Buy," "Hold," or a "Sell." The higher the score, the better.
It also tells you which REITs could soon break out, with earnings per share (EPS) rising and demand for shares picking up.
Let's unpack the top REIT (which pays an 8% dividend) to buy for November.
