REITs see renewed popularity

Real estate investment trusts are becoming more popular among investors as a market rebound nears. REITs were particularly popular in the first half of the decade as the real estate market boomed, but many REITs crashed in 2006 and 2007, following the market. Now, as investors wait expectantly for the market to trend upward again, many are putting their money back into REITs, which they expect will hold up long-term.
