How the Average Investor Takes a Bite out of the Big Apple's Real Estate Market

It's quite easy to justify the statement by just talking to the average person on the street that New York is known world over for its real estate market. The prices have a lot to do with this. At the end of 2016 the average apartment price in Manhattan (New York) exceeded $2 million dollars. The average price to purchase a condominium astoundingly exceeded $3 million. Both of these seemingly inconceivable figures are record highs for the famous borough in the "city that never sleeps".  Source: Elliman Report - Q4 2016 A large part of Manhattan's mystique and correspondingly expensive real estate prices...

$25 Billion in 30 Days: Cryptocurrencies and The Digital Age Gold Rush

The California Gold Rush started on January 24, 1848, when gold was found by James W. Marshall at Sutter's Mill in Coloma, California.

Consistent Income Strategy: High Dividend Yielding REITs

Some of the most time-tested and successful strategies when it comes to investing in the stock market are those involving investments in companies with consistent and high yielding dividend payments to investors. A dividend is a distribution of a portion of a company's earnings, decided by the board of directors, to a class of its shareholders.
