How Does a Real Estate Syndication Differ From a REIT?

One of the great advantages of investing in a real estate syndication is that you are actually a part owner in the property you choose to invest in.  Due to the partners having an ownership interest in the property they get the benefit of depreciation of the property on their K-1. This tax loss helps offset income from the property and is a huge tax benefit to investors.

When investing in a Real Estate Investment Trust (REIT) you are an owner of shares and have no direct ownership interest in the assets they invest in.  REITs are essentially a mutual fund investing in different properties all across the country, or around the world. You have no say in what a REIT invests in and do not get to choose the specific properties like you do in a real estate syndication.  REITs are publicly traded and are subject to market fluctuations that may or may not have anything to do with how they are performing.
