Occupancy Rate



Different REITs may report Occupancy levels in various forms/calculations. Some of the terms used to describe occupancy are Portfolio Occupancy, Weighted Average Occupancy, Ending Occupancy, Economic Occupancy, Leased Occupancy, Physical Occupancy, Pro Forma Occupancy, Same-Property Occupancy, Stabilized Portfolio Occupancy, Comparable Occupancy, Lease Rate, Percent Leased, among others. Some REITs interchange the words Occupancy and Leased while others use them to distinguish between data points. Some REITs also vary the use of the words over time through their earning reports. Therefore the information provided here is our best attempt at collecting data on occupancy/leased trends. However, it may not be accurate or comparable between different REITs.

REITRating is REITNote's Real Estate Investment Trust industry-specific rating and ranking system. The REIT’s score for each analysis is out of ten points, with ten being the best score and zero being the worst. A score of zero can be assigned if the REIT does not meet the criteria for that specific analysis. N/A is assigned if insufficient data is available for a particular analysis. Our REITRating logic is continuously improving, so a REIT’s rating and ranking may change over time. Important Note: REITRating is not a predictor of a REIT’s future performance, it is an evaluation of its past results. Additionally, the REITRating system is for informational purposes only and does not represent financial or investment advice or a recommendation of which REITs to acquire. Learn more.
