It may seem like madness to suggest buying real estate investment trusts at a time when yields are soaring. But with many REITs down 30%, now is the time to start digging around for value, Forbest reports.

This bond market selloff roiling all income-focused securities may very well continue for a while, and I don’t recommend trying to catch the proverbial falling knife by calling an exact bottom in REIT shares. 

But at the very least, you can build a watch list of your favorite names and average into them on any weakness. This has been my approach in my own income-focused portfolios.
