- Cottonwood Residential – Renting: The New American Dream
Multifamily housing has been one of the best performing sectors in commercial real estate over the last few years due in large part to strong demographic trends and moderate economic expansion in the US. These trends are likely to continue with home-ownership rates stagnating, seniors looking to downsize, and the emergence of the Echo Boomer generation which will be 71 million strong by 2017. Cottonwood Residential Inc. is a fully integrated real estate investment company that focuses solely on the acquisition and management of multifamily properties in growing markets across the US. Amenities in these properties include resort style pools, state of the art exercise rooms, multi-media rooms, volleyball courts, and outdoor kitchens catering to where a new generation of renters wants to live.
- Going Green – California Passes 50% Renewables by 2030
California and many other states have adopted renewable energy standards – which require electric utility companies in those states to produce a portion of their electricity from solar, wind and other renewable sources. Since 1970, decreasing prices for PV cells have been driving down the cost of solar power to where it is generally considered to be close to “grid parity.” Sustainable, reliable energy can also mean sustainable, reliable income in retirement, and the opportunities remain vast in this space.
