    i dont think so. the 3 reits are growing nicely. Green and Hiberna grew by 15% roughly in last 12 months Ires 36% in same period Figures from 3/11/16- 13/10/17. I see no reason why this growth will stop all 3 are investing nicely into future assets.

    I believe a 4th REIT looking at primary care centres and nursing home is due to launch late this year early next year

    what's your forecast for REITs for the next year or two?

    My general experience of investing in Irish reits (pre covid) is that they paid great wages and bonuses to themselves in a buoyant market while the share price generally flatlined. Sold up after a few years with little to no gains.

    Reits have actually done well, you get your dividend cheque every year and some capital appreciation, much better than a deposit account or those special savings accounts (essentially just giving money to the government now) , none of the headaches of property investment, dodgy tenants and the risk that they will thrash your property or not pay the rent. Whats not to like about reits

    Sounds about what I would expect from an Irish REIT. Did any of those generous bonuses translate into dividend payments?

    yes but REIT,s have failed to track the upward price gains in the on the ground property market , they arent really a substitute which isnt to say they are a poor investment , they are decent dividend payers
