The other day I mentioned that the Vanguard REIT index (VNQ) is one of the investments on my own 'watch list'. That lead me to look for other potential REIT ETFs that one could purchase.

I found this list of REIT ETF choices from the site REIT Wrecks. They have a variety of ETFs for buying REITs. Some are for REITs in specific geographic areas like Asia or North America. Other ETFs are for specific REIT index like the Dow Jones REIT Index.

REITs are a pretty good way to invest in real estate without doing any of the work that direct ownership of property entails. Buying REITs in an ETF index are a good way to be in REITs in an easily diversified manner so all your real estate eggs aren't in one basket.
