Lightsone Real Estate Income Trust, Inc. recently approved lowering the monthly distribution by 50%, from 8% to 4%.  The reason given for the decrease in dividends by board of directors was a lack of liquidity and operating costs due to concerns the 8% was no longer sustainable based upon the funds from operations. A reduction in dividends often precedes a dividend suspension.

Non-traded REITs do not trade on a public securities exchange which often make them illiquid, and unable to sell on demand. Non-traded REITs are typically suitable only for investors with  long-term investment goals who are willing to accept the higher levels of risk in their portfolios.  Non-traded REITs and their risks must be explained to the investor by their brokers and financial advisors who recommend these complex and illiquid investments.  REITS often have high commissions, usually between 7 to 10% and could carry administrative fees up to an additional 1 to 3%.

Lightsone Real Estate Income Trust, Inc., was incorporated in 2014, as a publicly registered non-traded REIT. Lightstone REIT began offering their securities in February of 2015 and terminated its offering in March of 2017 after it raised approximately $85.6 million in investor funds.  Lightstone REIT consists of income producing residential or commercial real estate.  It originates, acquires, and manages real estate properties across the United States.
