What is a REIT?

A Real Estate Investment Trust, or REIT, is like a traditional mutual fund that pools investor capital for the purpose of investing in a portfolio of assets managed by professionals. A REIT invests in income producing real estate and makes investing in office buildings, apartments and commercial real estate easy and hassle free.

Tax-Advantaged Monthly Distributions

Targeted 6-8% annual distributions, mostly tax-deferred; equivalent to a 12.9% to 15% before-tax return on an “interest-bearing” investment such as a bond or a mortgage, assuming highest marginal personal income tax rates for Ontario residents.

Long-Term Capital Growth

Targeted annual growth of 3-5% (reflected in the Unit price) driven by growth in the underlying values of the properties.

Market Risk Mitigation

Through a sustainable and diversified acquisition strategy that offers stability of yield, inflation protection and growth potential, income-producing properties are a more predictable form of real estate.

Eligibility for RRSPs, RRIFs, RESPs and TFSAs

Eligible for a wide range of investment vehicles, such as RRSPs, RRIFs, RESPs and TFSAs.

Preferential Access to a Pipeline of Acquisitions

Preferential access to new and stabilized multi-family and commercial income properties owned and developed by affiliates of District REIT.

Specialized Management

An investor-focused management team with deep industry experience in all classes of real estate.

Distribution Reinvestment Plan

For investors’ convenience, a distribution reinvestment plan (DRIP) option is available. Instead of receiving cash distribution monthly, investors distribution can be automatically reinvested in additional units.

Prudent Capital Structure

Conservative overall weighted average loan-to-value ratio of 70%.

Transparent Reporting

Through regular reporting, you will always know where your investment stands.

Key REIT Advantages

Why a REIT?

Why a Private REIT?

District REIT is “private”, meaning it does not trade on a stock market. The Net Asset Value is based directly upon the market value of the underlying real estate and not subject to the volatility of the stock market. The Unit price is expected to be stable and not fluctuate from one period to the next, while growing slowly over time. As a result, investments in private REITs are often considered long-term.
