Welcome to my investment blog where I share with you my analysis of REITs in Singapore.

I hope that my investment philosophy will bring me a steady stream of income apart from my job. I am aiming for at least $3,000 per month which can sustain the current expenses of myself and my family.

Do enjoy reading my blog and post any comments that you have. I welcome them because it is a time to learn from each other.

When I am looking at investing in REIT, here are some of the guidelines that I am looking at. Feel free to comment on it. I am willing to listen to ideas.

-> at least 8% yield.
-> Price that is lower than its NAV.
-> Low gearing (if possible)
-> High secured NAV.

Current Dividend income is $3,800/month.

TODAYonline | Commentary | A decade on, REITs remain a mystery

TODAYonline | Commentary | A decade on, REITs remain a mystery

This is one nice article which is worth reading about REITs. I admit that I am one of those who actually trust the REIT manager to do the right thing. If I don't trust them, I simply sell it which many has done when the announcement was made. I think it takes more than just buying properties to be a REIT manager because they would need to take care of it, and ensure that the value of the property is maximised so that shareholders earn much more.

But I do agree that the REIT managers earn more when they do acquisition than managing existing properties, because it can be abused easily. I don't mind giving more to REIT managers if they manage to improve the yield of the existing properties or decrease the interest rates of the loans that REITs are taking. A balance would need to be reached.
