Our Board asked us to look into forming a REIT. I was wondering if anyone here has any experience with these? Particularly, I am tyring to determine how to form a REIT and the pros/cons of forming one. Any input would be appreciated.

I would call an attorney who handles these on a daily basis. There are several types of REITs, each with various benifits.

The main pros are tax savings and dividend return.

There are two good websites that you can find simply by Googling REIT.

Good luck.
