A client developer group just told me they reached terms to “buy equity in a lease.” From what they’ve told me, if we were setting this up fresh, I’d do a new LLC and easily handle capital contributions, buy-sell, etc. in the new LLC agreement. However, here the partner had a long-term lease on the underlying RE that our group wants to develop as a concept. Lease assignment to new LLC is dicey, but I’m thinking maybe we set up a Mgmt services company to contract w/ the partner-tenant entity?

Is anyone currently doing “social media audits” as a live workshop with client? Curious if you have found those successful. My leadership has tasked me to find a way to do this to save hours. My concerns are I’d be screensharing to poke around social and ad accounts, competitor profiles, show social tools and pull search results live, provide live insights (which would not be well thought out or researched) and not have something tangible like a deck to share at the end.

This is my third year living in New York! I think something that I wish I knew earlier was the size and ease of transportation from some areas. I would personally recommend looking for living in boroughs like - Brooklyn -Queens -Bronx Some areas in these boroughs are way lower in rent than Manhattan and could easily get you to your job with one train ride. A commute may help you save thousands a year. This hopefully could get you paying your own mortgage instead of rent
