A Texas neighborhood: looking for a broader way to invest in real estate than just buying individual houses?

The rent is too damn high and there aren’t any houses to buy, but all is not lost. Thanks to a new exchange-traded fund, investors may soon be able to profit from the housing shortage crisis.

HOMZ , which will trade on the New York Stock Exchange starting Wednesday, tracks an index created by its parent company, Hoya Capital. The index is “designed to be the new barometer for the U.S. Housing Sector,” Hoya says in its promotional materials.

There are other ETFs tracking housing and some mutual funds, as well.
