HAUS is only worth owning, with its higher cost structure, if an
investor feels that apt and home rentals will continue to lead the
REIT sector over the next 2 years.

I do not like that AVB and EQR are large holdings with little south

US apt exposure. If it truly is actively managed then it should be
positioned in the apt sub-sectors that are producing the best alpha.

So the top in residential real estate is in? Here's an ETF to offload the assets onto retail investors...

Although humans are humans and sometimes these things take time.

VNQ expense ratio: 0.12%

HAUS expense ratio: 0.60%

Is HAUS worth 5x the expense of VNQ? No.
@Suspirium Puellarum Also, since it buys other REITs you pay the management fees on them as well. Same applies to VNQ, etc. I guess if you like the target (residential), it gives you diversification.

@Suspirium Puellarum The holdings in HAUS are much more attractive.

@Suspirium Puellarum It's not worth it, especially since the top 10 holdings represent 70% of the fund. REZ would be a better option due to having a slightly less expense ratio, more holdings, and it has out performed VNQ, but its top 10 is 60% of the fund.
Definitely going to check this out. Thanks for the article

@Seriol Its top 10 holdings make up 70% of its assets. Don't they know trades are free? If you want to overweight residential, why not just buy the top 10 holdings and you will effectively get the same performance and save the expense ratio.
Appreciate the news about this new ETF.
