Celebrated Real Estate Developer Caleb Walsh Announces Contract to Purchase Major Multifamily Unit in Tampa – St. Moritz

TAMPA, Fla., March 1, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Caleb Walsh (https://urbanbayhousingfund.com/) officially announced he had entered into a contract to purchase St. Moritz, a collection of two-bedroom townhomes centrally located near the coast in the Tampa region. With a host of amenities, St. Moritz represents affordable housing with a luxury feel in a growing urban area. Caleb Walsh is the director of Urban Bay Housing Fund, and was named one of the Top 100 People in Real Estate to watch by Top 100 Magazine. Urban Bay Housing Fund is a nationally recognized market leader, specializing in the development and management of multifamily and commercial properties throughout the U.S.   Continue Reading Caleb Walsh director of Urban Bay Housing Fund St. Moritz in Tampa, Florida. "We're very excited and pleased to announce this purchase," said Walsh. "It represents a continuing commitment by Urban Bay Housing Fund to develop housing investment opportunities that our investors can be proud of. There is an ongoing affordable housing crisis in Florida, directed affected by the economics of the region and, ironically, its continued growth. Put simply: though the area is booming with opportunity, most middleclass people cannot afford to live there. This is a complex issue, dealing partially with population growth – the state adds nearly 400-thousand new people a year – as well as the rising cost of Florida real estate; in addition, the balance between income and expenses, and the continual need for housing by working class folks – many of whom just cannot afford to purchase a home – exacerbates the problem. Fortunately, quality multifamily living units like St. Moritz provide a wide-ranging solution to most of these issues, especially in a thriving community like Tampa." St. Moritz: The Best Kept Secret in Tampa Each St. Moritz townhome is a fully modern living space with two bedrooms and all the amenities of a fine apartment home, including: all-electric kitchens with dishwasher, microwave, refrigerator, pantry, and breakfast bar; washer and dryer; plush carpeted floors and ceiling fans; central air and heating; and a full balcony and patio for each unit. In addition to taking complete advantage of the sunny location, with access to schools, parks, restaurants, and shopping, St. Moritz offers a swimming pool, modern clubhouse, fitness center, billiards room, picnic area, and a business center maintained by a professional staff who provide prompt on-call service and property management. About Caleb Walsh A nationally recognized authority on finance, development, and property sales, Caleb's multifamily property investing began with residential real estate flipping in 2008. Not long after completing nearly $5-million in transactions at the time, Caleb began to observe the alarming decline of the credit markets, and decided to adapt to the changing economic environment by converting a variety of existing projects into rental portfolios. Through 2015, Caleb acquired nearly $50 million in multifamily properties in an expansion that quickly highlighted the weaknesses of property management companies. So, Caleb developed a new management formula, putting together a highly qualified team of regional property managers to address these issues. Since then, the creation of Urban Bay Housing Fund has allowed Caleb to expand to over 150 locations – with holdings in 10 states, spanning from the Southeast to the upper-Midwest. His specialty is reviving declining rent rolls by increasing both their value and practical appeal.About Urban Bay Housing FundThe Urban Bay Housing Fund group is comprised of highly skilled real estate specialists with varied and nuanced expertise in every sector of the commercial real estate industry. Specializing in multifamily and hospitality off-market transactions as a core of its commercial acquisitions, Urban Bay buys and holds lucrative, self-managed real estate ventures in major markets before matching them to the best, complimenting franchises – with a broad focus in properties located in the Western and Southern United States.

Window Nation Expands Its New England Footprint Due to Increased Demand

HARTFORD, Conn., March 1, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Home improvement has surged as Americans have been forced to use their homes more – and in likely new ways. Home improvement is also getting a boost from a booming real estate market, causing a lot of people to make needed updates, investments and improvements in order to sell. Both trends are evident in the New England area, and the driving force behind Window Nation, the 5th largest window replacement company in the U.S., to open its second location in the New England area in Hartford (1070 North Farm Rd., Unit 1 in Willingford), adding both new jobs and in-demand home solutions to the area. The company will service the Hartford/New Haven areas as well as southwestern Massachusetts. Continue Reading According to a recent study, the housing market in the Hartford area has surpassed the national average. This, along with the major rise in home improvement projects thanks to more Americans home these days, has led to Window Nation expanding its New England footprint. The company, owned by brothers Harley and Aaron Magden, will service Hartford, New Haven plus southwestern Massachusetts. According to a recent study out of Harvard, economists who study consumers have noted how, during the pandemic, households are shifting their spending patterns: less for travel and vacations, concerts, shows, eating out, entertaining, and commuting, and more for housing. Additionally, the pandemic has pushed more millennials into homeownership and home improvement projects. "We're of course excited by the increase our industry is having across the board, especially because it means we were able to keep our team employed, but we're still very much in the middle of a pandemic and have had to adjust our approach so that our customers, as well as our employees, are always safe," explained Harley Magden, CEO of Window Nation, a company he started with his brother, Aaron, 15 years ago. "This means offering virtual visits and estimates as options, contactless installations and with so many in-person home shows cancelled, we launched a virtual one online to help people with the process and home-centric projects in general." Window Nation's continued growth in the New England area is based on these factors, plus the city's booming housing market where experts at RE/MAX site the Hartford area as having the third highest home sales in the nation. According to a recent study by the realtor, sales in the Hartford metro area blew past the national increase of 21.1% compared with a year earlier. The Hartford showroom will sell replacement windows to fit every style, as well as budget, and will have experts on hand to walk customers through the home renovation process, including vinyl options, colors, sizes, styles and more. Customers are encouraged to schedule an appointment prior to visiting the showroom. The Window Nation team is following strict CDC guidelines including social distancing, enhanced cleaning practices, protective equipment and screenings for every appointment. In an effort to ensure the safety of all customers, employees and their families amid COVID-19, the company is also offering residents the option to receive a virtual consultation and estimate via video conferencing. Homeowners can upload photos to receive precise measurements, and installs are completed outside with minimal disruption. Depending on a customer's individual preferences, needs and circumstances, Window Nation experts are still available to provide in- home consultations and education, while strictly adhering to CDC safety and sanitation guidelines. The Magden brothers, who literally grew up in the window business, started the company in 2006 and now operate in 15 markets across the country. The company provides an unsurpassed selection of premium windows, doors and siding installed by highly skilled, licensed professionals. The company has replaced over 1 million windows in Chicago, Boston, St. Louis, Kansas City, Maryland, Washington, D.C., northern Virginia, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, Harrisburg, Hartford, Indianapolis, Charlotte, Columbus, Cincinnati and northeast Ohio.
