CHARLOTTESVILLE, VA—The pace of REIT fundraising continues to lag 2013 figures, according to data from SNL Financial. The locally based firm reports that equity REITs domestically had raised $51.09 billion in capital year-to-date as of Oct. 17, trailing the $55.53 billion they garnered during the same period the year prior. That’s a similar story to what reported last month, when REITs’ YTD tally of $44.86 billion was nearly $1.6 billion smaller than a year earlier.
