Own Income Producing Properties

In NYC’s Greatest growth Neighborhoods

How it Works

Similar to an Index Fund or Exchange Traded Fund (ETF) that tracks a specific segment of the stock market, each CityShares neighborhood investment fund invests in a diversified portfolio of properties within a specific neighborhood allowing investors to express their optimism in the growth of a neighborhood and harness potential appreciation while holding a diversified "basket" of properties under professional management.

Choose your NYC neighborhood Investment fund

Invest in neighborhoods you know, love and believe are poised to appreciate. Whether you live in one of these particular neighborhoods or believe in New York City's historic and future real estate growth, neighborhood specific real estate funds allow you to participate in the income, growth and appreciation of a particular neighborhood with risk adjusted returns.

Your Investment Accrues a Preferred Return Paid Quarterly

Your investment in Cityshares accrues a 6% preferred return, paid quarterly. Our strategy targets a total return of 12% with a % of that paid each quarter through profit from your properties.  

Your returns are generated through Rent minus Expenses = Profit


Once the property is leased to a tenant they pay rent monthly.


The property company pays debt services, taxes, accounting, etc.


After holding reserves, profit (if any) would typically get paid out quarterly.

You Get Paid through Rent, Appreciation & Liquidity Events

CityShares focuses on acquiring properties with current rental income in place and the ability to increase that income over time.  Our strategy targets 12%+ annual returns with 60-80% of that return coming from rental income and the balance from market appreciation and our active management strategy.

There are a number of factors that will increase your return such as active management, market and sub-market appreciation, inflation and value creation that will increase the value of your investment.  In addition, investors will see an increased return through liquidity events such as refinancing and property exits. 

You Invest Along Side Us In Specific NYC Neighborhoods

The neighborhoods that are the focus of our neighborhood Investment Funds were chosen for specific reasons based upon our years of professional real estate investment experience. As a CityShares investor, you will receive a preferential return that is paid in full before management receives its performance fee.

When We Exit A Property, You Receive An Additional Distribution

After selling the property and paying off any remaining mortgage and closing costs, the investors receive their share of the proceeds.



You Will Own Physical Properties, You Can Actually Visit Your Assets

CityShares provides full transparency for your investments. Each neighborhood fund will own a series of properties in a specific neighborhood that you can see, view and visit (but you can't go inside). Unique from a REIT (Real Estate Investment Trust) with extremely high management fees (up to 15%) and limited visibility, geographic distinction, or transparency, CityShares provides complete transparency and access to the specific properties you will own through the fund.

Our Interests Are Aligned, The Investor Group Is Paid In Full Before The Management Team Earns Their Performance Fee

Traditional private equity follows a 2 and 20 schedule, which means there is a 2% management fee and the manager takes 20% of all profits.  The CityShares schedule aligns the investor groups interests with managements interests.  With CityShares, the investor receives a preferential return of 6% before the manager receives any performance fees. This means that if the investor group were to make a 5.99% return annually, the manager would not make a dollar for performance fees and would only be paid a 2% management fee which is used for general expenses. (See Private Placement Memo and written materials for fee schedule)
