Based on current SEC filings, sponsor reports directly to Blue Vault, and sales trends, it is estimated that the nontraded REIT industry raised approximately $10.0 billion in 2015 versus $15.6 billion in 2014.
I have been using Blue Vault Partners for the past five years. I have found them to be a valuable, unbiased resource when it comes to evaluating and comparing non-traded REITs. The reports help me analyze which sponsors are doing a responsible job of managing their offerings. This allows me to limit my REIT recommendations to only the most competitive products, and then track those REITs throughout their life cycle.
