Hi, Kris,

Welcome!

Is this a good time to get into them with interest rates rising?

The "experts" can't agree, so anyone's guess here (including some experts) is as good as yours. For some other opinions, I suggest you read the 2nd article listed here:

It looks like they have had quite a run up, and I don't want to make the mistake (that many investors do) of getting in at the last moment before the "correction".

A very valid concern, IMO. If I were investing new money into REITs at this time, I would do so very conservatively. For example, take at least a 12-month time frame, and use a dollar value averaging approach. If you're not familiar with DVAing, here's a brief description (you may have to page down a couple of screens):

Lastly, since you're new, you may wish to browse the board's FAQ (see the link at the top of the "Announcements" box to the right of this message).
