Empire State of Mind: NYC REIT Cheat Code

New York, New York

I want to wake up in a city that never sleeps

And find I’m a number one, top of the list

King of the hill, a number one

-Frank Sinatra

Since the spring of 2015 I have had the pleasure of visiting New York City. It was always interesting watching television and films centered on New York City. Growing up in the south I always wondered what it would be like to visit New York or live in New York City. As we all know New York City is a hub for business, sports, music, and popular culture. With that being said New York City is known for great business opportunities. Recently I find out that Empire State Realty Trust, Inc. also known as ESRT (NYSE) currently has a stock price of $5.95. So I just purchased some shares and now own a piece of the Empire State Building. Empire State Realty Trust, Inc. is a REIT company. So I am sure you are wondering. What is a REIT? A REIT is a real estate investment trust is a company that owns, an din most cases operates income-producing real estate, ranging from office and apartment buildings to warehouse, hospitals, shopping centers, hotels, and commercial forests. Said differently, it is a professionally landlord that manages the space.

“REITS are required to pay 90% of their earnings in dividends.” -Phillip Michael, CEO NYCE
