Caddis Capital Investments Finances Luxury Student Housing Development At Colorado State University

Denver, CO (PRWEB) September 19, 2014

Caddis Capital Investments LLC, a leading investment firm focused on income producing real estate, closed on an investment in Carriage House Apartment Homes LLC, a 94-resident Student Housing complex, today with their joint venture development partner, Catamount Properties, who assembled the site. The new $ 10 Million luxury Student Housing community will sit directly across South Shields Street from the Colorado State University (CSU) campus. Catamount plans to break ground in the next several weeks with the residences available for lease before the 2015 school year commences.

Carriage House Apartments are located on a prime, 1.5-acre corner lot directly across from the CSU campus, several hundred yards from CSUs Academic Village dormitory complex and just 3 blocks from the Student Recreation Center. The complex will provide students with a wide range of amenities to create an ideal community for residents to live, study and play, including 57 reserved parking spaces onsite.

Colorado State University and the city of Fort Collins have such a rich significance in Colorado history and this project highlights our confidence in this micro-market, said Chuck Bailey, owner of Catamount Properties, a Colorado resident for the past 53 years and a Student Housing industry veteran. We look forward to continuing the tradition of blending modern floor-plans and authentic Colorado architecture by giving residents a new, contemporary living environment that reflects the natural beauty of Fort Collins. This community will truly be one-of-a-kind for the CSU student community because its comprised of multiple, smaller scale buildings which live more like houses, thus the name Carriage House.

Residents will be able to choose from a variety of spacious floor plans spanning five separate, low-rise buildings onsite including one, two and three-bedroom options. The individual apartments will come fully outfitted with private outdoor decks, modern appliances including refrigerators with ice-makers, dishwashers, self-cleaning ranges, hardwood style flooring, air conditioning, full-size washer and dryer hookups in each unit, 9-foot ceilings and more. Residents will be able to sign individual leases, meaning they are only responsible for the rent of their individual bed, not the rent of the entire apartment. The entire property is also equipped with high-speed Wi-Fi and will employ an on-demand maintenance and management staff.

2014 continues to be another benchmark year for Caddis Capital Investments, said Rhett Trees, an equity partner at Caddis Capital Investments. As we near the closing of our current investment vehicle, Trico Fund III, we are activating $ 40 million to acquire new income producing real estate assets across the Western United States and we are honored to include Carriage House in our portfolio.

As a CSU College of Business board member, alumni and former student athlete, I am proud to see this project come to fruition and we are very excited to once again partner with Catamount Development to launch Carriage House, said Tery Larrew, founder and managing partner at Caddis Capital Investments. The Fort Collins market is prime for this type of product with a historic 2 percent vacancy rate, a world-class student base and a thriving eco-system.

Carriage House will initiate pre-leasing activities in the coming months and open for students in August 2015. For more information, please visit http://www.catamountproperties.com/carriage-house-fort-collins-colorado.html

Snow Removal Services Procurement Category Market Research Report Now Available from IBISWorld


Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) September 13, 2014

Snow removal services have a buyer power score of 3.5 out of 5, which reflects an advantage for buyers in the market. Buyers have many purchasing options when dealing with suppliers, such as multiple pricing models and a wide selection of related services. Because snow removal services are seasonal, buyers have ample time to thoroughly research and evaluate suppliers before entering into a supply contract, according to IBISWorld business research analyst, Scott Winters. These favorable market factors effectively offset the risk imparted by unstable input costs and unpredictable snowfall; this leaves buyers with the upper hand during negotiations.

The market for snow removal services is extremely fragmented with more than 22,000 total suppliers in the United States and the vast majority of them operating as nonemployers catering to their local area. Major vendors include The Brickman Group Ltd., USM Inc. and ValleyCrest Companies. Nonetheless, a large selection of suppliers allows buyers to compare multiple bids with ease and enhances price competition in the market. Industry certifications give buyers valuable insight into a supplier’s potential performance, which improves the likelihood of hiring a qualified supplier. Buyers can take advantage of a number of different pricing models such as per-occurrence and per-season models. With adequate research, buyers can select the pricing model that maximizes value and minimizes risk and thus boosts their buyer power further.

However, a few market characteristics work against buyers such as the lack of substitute services and the risk of spiking input costs. For most buyers, snow removal services are a necessary purchase, which reduces the availability of substitutes and transferring power into the hands of suppliers, says Winters. Another important risk facing buyers is the price of deicing salts and chemicals becoming prohibitively expensive as the winter season progresses. Input cost increases can cause the price of snow removal services to climb steeply and hurt buyer value. Lastly, unpredictable snowfall could result in buyers paying too much for services if there is less snow than expected or paying extra fees if there is more snow than expected. However, buyers should expect to find a high quality supplier at a reasonable price. For more information, visit IBISWorlds Snow Removal Services procurement category market research report page.

The Trans-Siberian Orchestra is considered a progressive rock and progressive metal group that originally founded in 1996 by Paul ONeill. The group has become synonymous with the holiday season and is known for their winter shows than they are any other shows held throughout the year. In their history together, the group has sold more than 10 million tickets and more than 10 million records. Buying a ticket to a TSO show isnt all about the music. It is also all about giving back to the local community and after each show, a donation is made to an organization that could use the help.

As the group continues to send different artists around the country on their tours, they continue to gain fans to the point where on New Years Eve 2014, they played for more than one million fans in Germany. Not many groups have been able to make that claim and the group is anxiously waiting to bring their latest Christmas spectacular to the United States.

At many of the stops on the tour this year, the Trans-Siberian Orchestra will perform multiple shows each day. This will allow their fans the chance to see them perform live and have a story to tell their kids about. Among the stops that the group will make this holiday season include the Pepsi Arena In Denver, CO.; Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, CT; Taco Bell Arena in Boise, ID; PNC Arena in Raleigh, NC; Moda Center in Portland, OR; Verizon Wireless Amphitheatre in Manchester, NH; Times Union Center in Albany, NY; and BB&T Center in Sunrise, FL.

The Trans-Siberian Orchestra will once again be one of the hottest tickets of the winter and as soon as you catch a show, will see why fans come back year after year. Find TSO front row seats, balcony seats, mezzanine seating, loge seating, general admission tickets, and VIP seating.
