I'm looking to get into real estate, and topic index seems promising on a 5-10 year scale. Are there any ETFs, or mutual fund products offering to track this index?

Although you can't invest in an index, you can invest in a fund that basically invests in what the index is made up of. Example: In dealing with an auto index, you could find a fund that buys car companies's stock. The Google Finance list of funds dealing with INDEXDJX:REIT Although not pertaining to your quetion exactly, you may want to consider buying into Vanguard REIT ETF

I hope this answers your question.

  • INDEXDJX:REIT is a specific index. You've included a search for just "reit", which is not quite what the OP asked for. REIT ETFs can vary a fair amount in what the underlying is invested in. – bstpierre Jun 1 '11 at 11:45
