If everyone likes a sale, shouldn't they like it when their their stocks (or REITS) go on sale?

I think a sale is a relative term. The right way is what is the underlying value vs the price. If you see a discount and like the stock, yes.

The real question is, are REIT common valuation high? Were people looking for yield pushed the valuation too high? And whether the current price is just low from that high but relative to historical valuation is it high or normal?

I think these are relevant questions. Buffett's quotes are nuanced and cannot be followed blindly.
