For income investors, 7 of these 10 REITs offer current dividend yields in excess of 4%.  Of those 7, 4 offer dividend yields over 5%, and my favorite in the group offers a dividend yield over 7%.  One of the strongest selling points of investing in REITs is the prodigious amount of dividend income they produce.  Consequently, they can really balance out a retirement portfolio by providing a yield boost.

Finally, I will be reviewing some of the issues that investors considering REITs need to be aware of.  Perhaps the biggest of all is the amount of dilution that REITs tend to produce.  In order to grow revenues, REITs need to invest in income-producing real estate.  However, since they are required by law to pay out 90% of the distributable income, they typically must issue shares in the equity market to get the capital they need to grow.
