One of the biggest names and largest REITs in the sector is undoubtedly Simon Property Group (NYSE:SPG). It specializes in creating world-class shopping, dining and entertainment destinations.

Financially, this giant had a very upbeat quarter, with a big increase in net income to $594.1 million, or $1.82 per share. This increase was driven by selling a portion of its joint venture SPARC Group. Simon Property Group now owns 33% versus its previous 50%, but that hasn’t impacted its financials as much.

In terms of numbers, SPG is going for more. It recently announced the sale of $500 million in 6.250% unsecured notes due 2034 and $500 million in 6.650% notes due 2054. There is no doubt that, financially, this giant knows how to strategize and play money to its advantage.

Last but not least is luxury home builder, Toll Brothers (NYSE:TOL).

Financially for the last fiscal year, Toll Brothers had a slight decline in revenue from home sales and home deliveries due to litigation that affected its numbers, but that has not been an impediment to its growth and expansion.

Despite these challenges, Toll Brothers did have one aspect in its favor, and that was that it had a 53% increase in the net value of contracts signed. This will translate into promising positive trends.

This company, in partnership with Willton Investment Management, secured a large $86 million construction loan for Lumara, which is a sophisticated 456-unit rental community in Phoenix.

To demonstrate Toll Brothers’ strong commitment to investors, it has approved a quarterly cash dividend and a new share repurchase authorization. Toll Brothers is unstoppable and committed to its future growth.
