I posted this ranking last year, but I mistakenly deleted it during some frenetic housecleaning. The new ranking below is new and improved, as the data is now current as of year end 2010, it ranks each REIT by total real estate assets (excluding cash, cash equivalents, receivables, etc.,), and I have included the ratio of debt to total real estate assets, which is a quick indication of a REIT's leverage levels. However, please note that these leverage ratios do not always include real estate assets and liabilities in unconsolidated joint ventures.
Cash and cash equivalents sitting on all these balance sheets would probably add $2 to $3 billion to the $62 billion in total real estate assets, which makes non-traded REITs a $65 billion market in 2010. Expectations are that investors will pour another $8 to $10 billion into these vehicles in 2011. Those would be pretty respectable numbers, if only these REITs could pay real dividends!
