@Tia Anderson as a general rule of thumb its never a good time to invest in IPOs.
@Tia Anderson Why not just invest your money with the REIT?
I recommend starting with reading "Investing in REITs" by Block. It's a great starter book and will make you know more than 90% of other investors.
After that, check on Dataroma.com and see if any famous, successful investors like Buffett own any REITs, and pull up the investor presentations and annual reports and see if you like what they see in it.
Some are very specialized, like WPG (malls in B & C cities) or NXRT (apartments in B and C neighborhoods) or REITs that are self-storage facilities, medical tenants, or cloud data centers. So you might think about what type of REIT is underpriced now and go from there.
@Peter Sanchez Great suggestion on Dataroma, but the major issue is most of the data on there comes from quarterly disclosures, so its old news. Do I really care that Seth Klarman bought 22M shares of 21st Cen Fox Q417? No, not really because he could have bought them anytime between Oct-Dec.
