REIT ETFs

Saw this on reddit and wondered what RFD thinks about REIT ETFs vs individual REITs

I hold some VRE because I'm lazy. Is the only disadvantage the MER?

I personally prefer it - in my mind it reduces the risk, allows me to hold some of the heavily discounted REITs like RIO while offsetting the purchase of more steadfast producers like CAR. I'm ok paying a little premium for that.

Full disclosure - I own XRE and RIT in separate accounts.

I think REIT ETFS are great. I hold ZRE and VRE.

If you want exposure to the asset class but can't be bothered to research individual companies the ETFS are a great way to go.
Buy quality. Keep calm and go long
