Want to own real estate but avoid the cost to your time and no property management issues? Then owning REIT investments is a good way to go. You don’t have to deal with demanding tenants or property taxes or another Federal IRS income tax form.

In November 2018 I did a blog about ETF VNQ. Everyone has an opinion about what is the best of the best for just about anything. Apple, some would say, makes the best smart phone. Starbucks makes the best coffee. Ford makes the best truck. Of course, these are just opinions. While I like VNQ, some would argue that SCHH (Schwab U.S. REIT ETF™) is the best REIT ETF.

What does SCHH hold? According to Weiss Ratings and Fidelity, the top holdings in SCHH are Simon Property Group Inc (SPG), Prologis Inc (PLD), Public Storage (PSA), Welltower Inc (WELL), Equity Residential (EQR), AvalonBay Communities Inc (AVB) and Ventas Inc (VTR) are some SCHH’s top holdings. SCHH has 5.00B in holdings, a reasonable dividend yield of 3.29%, a low expense ratio 0.07% and a rational turnover ratio of 8.00%. However, the dividend growth path is a bit uncertain.  See this comparison with SCHD, another ETF I like. SCHD is not a REIT ETF.
