Vanguard REIT Index ETF Message Board

    Take profit or wait?

    It seems that if you believe some real estate exposure is good, this ETF beats just about every alternative. It's diversified, cheap, and it's a slow grower, delivering better than a bond fund. You could buy a real estate mutual fund like Ken Heebner's and maybe score a bonanza--or have your head handed to you. And either way at a price. But I'm inclined to take my 20% profit in Vanguard's ETF and look at something more exciting. It's slowing down of late, and we appear to be a long long way from any real recovery. I had a big real estate fund that was up every single month for 20 years; now it's been down for 20 consecutive months. If that sucker stops its slide (TIAA real estate), that'll be a signal to return to Vanguard's real estate ETF.
