Government Properties Income Trust (NYSE:GOV) is a Real Estate Investment Trust based in Newton Massachusetts. It owns 6.5 million square feet office buildings that are leased mostly (93.6%) to the United States federal government.

GOV is externally managed by Reit Management & Research LLC (RMR). RMR is a large real estate management company founded in 1986. They also manage other publicly traded REITs. Adam D. Portnoy is the President.

Government Properties Income is a new REIT. It completed its Initial Public Offering in June 2009, close to the depths of the financial crisis. GOV is now included in the Russell 2000® Index and the MSCI US REIT Index (RMS/RMZ). They are located in Newton Massachusetts.

Government Properties Income Trust is Picking Stable Government Income Over Exciting Growth

Government Properties REIT is succeeding by adapting to the times. Although the private sector in the United States is in rough shape, the United States government is expanding, or at least holding steady. Government agencies prefer long-term leases and stable locations. And the government pays on time according to its contracts. It can be demanding in terms of its requirements, but will work with you. And after you meet their conditions, it's easier for them to keep you than to move to another location.

They now own about $793 million dollars worth of office properties. That's 6.5 million square feet located in and around Washington D.C. and in twenty-four states. And that's fifty-three separate properties. Forty-three are leased to the United States federal government. The other ten commercial buildings are leased to the state governments of California, Maryland, Massachusetts, Minnesota and South Carolina.
