Investing in a REIT gives you access to a liquid diversified portfolio of real estate assets, without the need to manage anything on your own. This makes some of the biggest issues with direct real estate investing like illiquidity, management intensiveness, and the inability to properly diversify, go away completely. Just like with stocks, it is possible to buy a low-cost index fund of REITs.
