"It is a private Reit"

Whether it is a true private REIT or just a non-publically traded REIT, most around here just avoid such REITs.

A few questions.

1) Who is brining this REIT to your attention?
2) Will they make a commission on your purchase?
3) If yes to above, how much?
4) If a sales person was involved, did they give you any disclosure documents?
5) Have you read it/them?

A couple of broad comments.

1) A healthy degree of skepticism can be a valuable trait, especially if someone is trying to sell you something.
2) If you are actually considering investing, then there is no short cut to reading the disclosure documents. If you cannot understand something in the document after reading it say three times, the fact that you cannot understand it is intentional!

Buyer beware!
