The NAREIT Website Contains a Wealth of Information on the REIT Industry

Their subsidiary site www.investinreits.com contains more information on how to invest in real estate investment trusts.

They also act to promote investments in REIT stocks in many ways -- for instance, by lobbying Congress to pass legislation to add a real estate index option to the federal employees' Thrift Fund.

They also promote high quality, uniform accounting standards for real estate investment trusts to practice. It would immensely benefit REIT investors if they could easily compare Funds From Operations (FFO) and Adjusted Funds From Operations (AFFO) figures across all companies.

They also sponsor the FTSE NAREIT US Real Estate Index Series and the FTSE EPRA/NAREIT Global Real Estate Index.

The front page of their web site contains links to interesting stories about REITs in the financial press.
