Equity REIT

A real estate investment trust (REIT) that buys and owns property outright, rather than investing in mortgages. The revenue for equity REITs comes mainly from rents on the properties owned. Like all REITs, they may be traded as if they were stocks. Owning an equity REIT is more liquid than directly owning the real estate underlying it.
