Non-Traded REITs are securities that do not trade on a public securities exchange. For this reason, Non-Traded REITs can be illiquid, meaning investors may be unable to sell their investments on demand. The underlying collateral of the REITs consists of income producing residential or commercial real estate. Typically, the commissions generated on Non-Traded REITs are higher than industry norm (approx. 7%) and the investments themselves may be subject to extreme volatility due to associated risk factors. Non-Traded REITs are only suitable for investors with a long-term investment horizon who are willing to accept higher levels of risk in their investments.
Lightsone Real Estate Income Trust, Inc., which was formed in 2014, is the latest Non-Traded REIT to experience financial difficulties and publicly announce a reduction in its dividend distribution to investors. This is often a precursor to a dividend suspension. According to public records, the board of directors of Lightsone Real Estate Income Trust, Inc. recently approved decreasing the monthly distribution by 50%, from 8% to 4%. The board of directors cited a lack of liquidity and cash flow as reasons for the dividend reduction.
