Putting your REITs in an IRA is a good idea. Like you say "No worry about what's taxable at what rate...dividends vs. return of capital."

And Vanguard is one of (if not THE) lowest cost funds around. When we set up my wife's IRA we went with Vanguard directly, no middle men, no fees.

Anyone else wanting to start an IRA with Vanguard can contact Vanguard at 877-662-7447 or online at www.vanguard.com and ask about starting an IRA with them.

Scottrade is another good choice, in my never so humble opinion, because it is a DISCOUNT broker. If we were not already with Ameritrade, Scottrade would be my choice for a DISCOUNT broker.

Any Fool who is using a full service ($25, $33, $75 per trade) broker is a fool (small f) who's paying much to much for much to little.
