if people individually are trading on the stock market and they can lose money or gain money and then there's people that are investing in an index fund which covers an entire area of a stock market essentially putting their money in America so if America does well we do well investing in that stock index fund so why isn't there an infrastructure in place for a bond or an index fund for Real Estate Investors as big as this company or idea is growing for investing in real estate then how could it be set up where it is an index fund or a bond other people can benefit from that?
VNQ from Vanguard is a real estate ETF. Is that what you're thinking of?
Possibly. If that particular Vanguard is covering each and every business that is out there that is a real estate company or a real estate investing LLC or firm then yes maybe that is exactly what I'm talking about...
If there is a huge amount of money out there for the real estate big picture then there should be some sort of company that is able to utilize that money and when people put their money into that thing that index fund that whatever it is then in return it also supports the people who are doing the real estate investing buying and selling houses or building new houses and the like.
What you have described already exists.
RE focused index funds, like @Zac Lester mentioned, there are REITs, which are companies that do nothing but invest in RE and get special tax treatment for doing so that cover all aspects of the market, from commercial, apartments, MHPs ect, and there are bond funds that do nothing but buy mortgage backed securities.
okay well I appreciate the reply and thank you for give me a little bit better understanding on how this whole big picture works
