Take advantage of the bull market in housing.
Today is a great time to own housing with economy growing and unemployment low. You can easily become a landlord buying publicly traded REITs. REITs are required to pay out at least 90% of profits to shareholders providing investors current income with capital appreciation potential.

MAA shares are in a strong uptrend and shareholders are enjoying a dividend yield of nearly 3%.
If you would like to start gaining exposure to rental housing without the landlord hassles consider MAA today.
