I consider REIT as a better alternative for Fixed Deposit and Investment in Equity. The return is always as safe as fixed deposit but comes with two additional benefits
  1. Double or triple the return and you will get paid more frequent to FD (2 to 4 times a year)
  2. Potential capital gain (of course, sometime will have loss too).
As any class of investment, it comes with certain level of risk too.
