Many roads lead to the rewards of residential property

FT: A growing alternative to direct residential property purchase

If investing in residential property has so many problems, why are we seeing so many fund launches in the asset class? One possible answer is that these perceived risks are controllable - and are outweighed by the potential rewards. If we analyse these risks, we can perhaps see why residential property is coming back into favour.

Just read the entire article and it contains no specific information about what funds are available etc.
To me REITs were a huge disappointment which never seemed to happen. It still appears to be easier
to buy a stake in a few oil rigs (note the plural there) than to buy a stake in some residential property.

Until the crash I thought a good way of gaining some property exposure was to buy into the builders,
but they were so highly geared those investments were about as good as investing in or Lloyds RBS
shares.

It was - its just they topped out before the property market (thats normal - alot of history of that happening in the US) and are obviously more volatile.
