SUPRISING
INSIGHTS

Achieving effective portfolio diversification is most important in times of uncertainty and potential market volatility. Yet most investors maintain portfolios that are under-allocated toward real estate.

In this short ebook, the real estate investment professionals at Walker & Dunlop Investment Partners examine three commonly misunderstood aspects of real estate investment, and explain:

  • Why investing directly in real property is the best way to achieve portfolio diversification using real estate
  • Why real property is a “hybrid asset” — and why investors should look to take advantage of real estate’s “dual-layer” diversification potential
  • Why REITs do not offer the diversification benefits many investors think they do
