Real estate is the top-performing asset of the last two decades.
And it's one of the best assets to own in a period of low-interest rates.
With the Dow and S&P 500 sitting near record highs, a run on real estate is about to ensue once again.
Private equity and other Wall Street giants are building multibillion-dollar firms with one focus: to buy real estate assets that generate income and can push to new record levels.
One of the best ways to tap into the sector is through real estate investment trusts (REITs).
These publicly traded vehicles offer a stable dividend and incredible upside.
