It is really subjective and depends on which sector and your holding period. Due to the nature of REITs, they (-8%) have been out-performing the STI (-22%) year to date. There is always a demand for REITs especially in a low interest rate environment, so as long as you are clear why you are holding a REIT, there will always be a good time for entry.

As with all other investment products, REITs do come with investment risks, so it is important for you to find out more from your stockbroker or financial adviser and consider whether REIT investment is suitable for you. The Singapore Exchange (SGX), broking houses and educational portals such as Seedly regularly holds investment seminars on REITs investment for retail investors. These are all good avenues for you to learn how to value REITs.
