Sample of Solution:
In the course of recent years, the Canadian real estate segment has changed significantly. In managing cycles of bubbles and bursts, new methods and strategies have been developed to benefit from the value of real estate asset. One such development in this industry is the advent and growth of Real Estate Investment Trusts (REITs). REITs have allowed the investors with access to property investment which was previously considered to be illiquid. The investors can now invest their money in property, and the access to secondary markets has also added to the attractiveness of REITs.
