What to consider before investing in a DST. Investors should not invest in DST’s if they cannot afford to lose their entire investment. Due to the lack of liquidity in every DST investment, DSTs are long term investments. Investing in a Delaware Statutory Trust – DST property carries all the potential risks and potential benefits associated with real estate investing, with additional DST specific risks. There is no guarantee that DST net income will flow to an investor as originally projected. There is no guarantee that a DST property will appreciate in value, or that it won’t go down in value. DST investments are illiquid assets, and there is currently no established secondary market.
