I am looking for a "hands off" real estate investment with hopefully stable cashflows. Can anyone suggest a reputable fund? is it most efficient to buy a public traded REIT?

How "hands off" do you want to be Joe? Not having any hand in your affairs places you at the risk of errors by others.
I personally prefer a tad bit more control over my money and my eyes are more watchful over my money than any other third party.

If you do not want the work and effort, be it small, of going with private investments, then perhaps a REIT or some other publically traded RE investment is sufficient for you.

With just a little effort, you can find some investments with stable and secured (the most important aspect in my mind) cash flows. You have no security in the REIT, if it loses value, you lose money as with any stock or mutual fund.

I would look at some private placements to provide you the best returns, the most control, and if invested with the right people, the safest place to secure those funds.

In addition to what Will said, if you go private you can still use depreciation and have tax advantaged income. With a REIT there is no depreciation and it's taxed as earned income.

@Will Barnard and @Dennis Tierney....i think you both make good points...do you happen to know of any private placement funds that you would recommend I check out? Or where to go about finding private placements?

Joe,
It depends on how much you wish to invest. Word is most hedge funds won't talk to you for less than $2.5mm, but you must have a net worth many times that.

It's hard to find "private placements" because they're "private". SEC does not allow them to promote their offering to the public, and your local stock broker/financial planner only offers "registered" investments.

Best,

Tom

Private placements are limited to only people the syndicator already knows and has an existing social relationship with. So, you pretty much stuck with starting with people you know for tracking down private placements.

Registered investments are available via any stock broker. REITs and the like.

Joe,

Do you have any experience with investing in multi family apartments?
