Agree, though I may ease into REITs based on a personal impression that they will probably settle down within the upcoming year. That's as close to "timing the market" as I care to get.

REITs based on a personal impression that they will probably settle down within the upcoming year
LOL, this is what I was reading several years ago when I was on the fence about Vanguard REIT fund. I just said to hell with it and jumped in like I knew what I was doing and it has been my biggest winner ever since! It may dive tomorrow, or Monday, but if it's called for in your IPS/AA then add it now.
