Private REIT acquisitions are on the rise. Investors are showing increasing interest in acquiring private REITs, which have a variety of real estate holdings. These transactions are very different from standard real estate deals, but they also have significant benefits.

“If real estate investors want to include in their potential acquisition lists the expanding amount of real estate assets held by private REITs in the U.S., they need to be familiar with the ins and outs of acquiring a private REIT, which is a very different transaction from a traditional real estate purchase and sale,” Ben Fackler, a partner at Allen Matkins, tells GlobeSt.com. “And for both buyers and sellers it’s important to understand those key transactional differences in advance, in order to optimize the acquisition process and reduce potential frictions and busted deals.”
