New York City real estate has long attracted global investors seeking income, appreciation, and capital preservation. However, with the average apartment in Manhattan priced at more than $2 million, only a limited pool of investors have the resources necessary to invest directly in Manhattan residential real estate. Commencement Capital LLC has formed NY Residential REIT, LLC to purchase, invest in, and manage a portfolio of residential properties located in Manhattan, which will provide both accredited and non-accredited investors with the ability to obtain exposure to Manhattan residential real estate.
