Real estate investment trusts or REITs are companies that invest in the real estate sector. Buying real estate shares allows people to invest in the industry with little money without spending on expensive properties for returns.

These companies must pay at least 90% of their taxable income to investors in the form of dividends. Due to this, REITs could be a reliable source of passive income.

Some well-known REITs include American Tower Corp. and Crown Castle International Corp. However, here we discuss five REITs that gave positive returns YTD besides dividends.
