District REIT is a real estate investment trust that owns and operates a portfolio of income producing properties; properties that would be very difficult for individual investors to acquire insofar as qualifying for mortgage financing, having large down payments, managing and creating value, as well as having access to these special properties that are not available on the open market.
By purchasing Units in the REIT, investors are able to pool funds with other like-minded investors looking for part-ownership in a commercial portfolio. The REIT collects rent from the tenants, and net operating income of the real estate is distributed to the investors in the form of monthly distributions (cash flow!). Further, investors are expected to benefit from capital appreciation driven by increasing value of the underlying properties over time.
