What is a REIT?
Real estate investment trusts, more commonly known as REITs,
allow individuals to invest in large-scale, income-producing real estate.


A REIT is a company that owns and typically operates incomeproducing real estate or related assets. These may include office
buildings, shopping malls, apartments, hotels, resorts, self-storage
facilities, warehouses, and mortgages or loans.

Unlike real estate development companies, a REIT typically does not develop real estate
properties to quickly resell them. Instead, a REIT buys and develops properties primarily
to operate them as part of its own investment portfolio.
REITs provide a way for individual investors to earn a share of the income produced
through commercial real estate ownership – without actually having to go out and buy
properties on their own. This allows for qualified individual investors to have access to
the potential income and gains of multi-million dollar commercial real estate projects with
a much smaller investment of only a few thousand dollars.
Many REITs are registered with the SEC and are publicly traded on a stock exchange
while others may be registered but are not publicly traded and these are known as
non- traded REITs.

Veterinary Expert (Wythe County)

Choosing a new pet for the family is both fun and exciting! We at
Wythe Care Veterinary Service are here to help you in the search for
your new pet! If you are uncertain about a breed’s characteristics,
potential for health problems or life expectancy, we can help!

Call us before purchasing or acquiring your pet. We can give you a
list of questions to ask the breeder to be sure they are working hard to
give you a healthy pet, things to look for that make good breeders stand
Dr.Trina Leedy
out from the average breeder, and the confidence to walk away if the
pet or breeder does not suit your needs.
We can also help you with matching breeds to your needs. Many dogs end up in the
shelter because the owner does not have the time to keep the dog occupied and they
chew, develop anxiety, or bark excessively when left alone. Every breed meets someone’s
needs- but not everyone’s.
Allergies are another issue that we may help you with. Many breeders are beginning
to cross two purebreds to create new fashionable “breeds”. These cross bred pets make
good additions to the home, but remember, with two breeds comes two sets of problems
and perks- talk to us to see if the cross you are looking at is right for you!
Call us at (276)617-0500 to let us get you started on the right path with your new pet! •
