    Is the REIT sector the highest yield sector generally?

    So if the purpose is for supporting the shortfall of -ve geared properties then instead of buying a income fund is it better to have direct ownership of these REITs?

    AREITs are stuffed until the credit tap begins to flow like it used to.
