Each real estate sector—whether residential, commercial, or industrial—comes with varying levels of risk and reward. With a bit of research, investing in one (or a combination of) of these sectors can yield excellent returns.

DiversyFund used data from the FTSE Nareit All Equity REITs Index, last updated on June 4, 2021, to curate a list of today’s 10 best-performing real estate sectors. The sectors are ranked by their year-to-date total return in 2021, with ties broken by market capitalization as of May 28, 2021. The implied market capitalization in this dataset is, according to Nareit, “calculated as common shares outstanding plus operating partnership units, multiplied by share price.”
