Watkins Construction and Roofing of Jackson Mississippi joins with Owens Corning to donate free roof for United States Army Veteran.

I have been very excited about being part of this project, we have really rallied together as a company, and it feels really good to be helping an Army Veteran”

— Michael Dier

JACKSON, MISSISSIPPI, UNITED STATES , February 21, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Jackson Mississippi-based Watkins Construction & Roofing is giving back to the community by donating a free roof to United States Army Veteran Arthur Mikell. A resident of Jackson Mississippi, Michael said he was having to sleep in his den due to roof leaks in his old roof.

The philanthropic move comes as a part of the Owens Corning national project called Roof Deployment, which aims to help troop members and veterans in need. The Roof Deployment Project aims to inspire, activate and match its network of independent Platinum Preferred Roofing Contractors with military families around the country in order to provide them with new roofs.

"I have been very excited about being part of this project, we have really rallied together as a company, and it feels really good to be helping an Army Veteran," said Michael Dier of Watkins Construction and Roofing. The company wants to address the additional stressors and challenges that military families face on a day-to-day basis, which occur as a result of military life. Household responsibilities can be one of the main stressors, which is why roofs can fall into disrepair and cause issues for people living in these homes.

"The Roof Deployment Project will play a key role in bettering the lives of United States servicemen, women and their families," said Martin C. Boire, Executive Director of Support Our Troops®. "It's a great symbol of support here at home for those who protect our country on a daily basis."

ABOUT WATKINS CONSTRUCTION AND ROOFING

Watkins Construction and Roofing works to build quality residential and commercial roofs of all shapes and sizes in Jackson, Madison, Brandon, Byram and surrounding areas of Mississippi. They provide a wide range of services and ensure that customers' receive reliable customer service, high-quality materials and the best craftsmanship.

ABOUT THE PROGRAM

When troops are away from home, family life can be stressful for those left behind, and home repairs are often overlooked. That's why Owens Corning Platinum Preferred Contractors are working with Habitat For Humanity to offer new roofs to service men and women in need. Together, we can build a better future.

Camden Homes brings the American Dream to Liberty County Houston, Texas with New Residential Living Project

DALLAS, TX, UNITED STATES, February 20, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Camden Homes, one of the leading Dallas Homebuilders who provides affordable housing through their own finance program has a new development in Houston that’s making headlines.

The Colony Ridge project located in Liberty County, a predominantly undeveloped area, is located approximately 45 minutes from Downtown Houston. Despite it’s close proximity to one of the largest cities in the United States, it’s been slow to grow until now.

Featured recently in the Houston Chronicle on January 29, 2018, Colony Ridge Developer Trey Harris states, “The single-most important recent development is the addition of Camden Homes.” The Dallas-based homebuilder has already made its mark in the community with several dozen homes either sold, constructed or underway.
Their success has been met with sales that are averaging at least five to seven homes per week and a deal that will increase their footprint in the community on a much larger scale.
"They want to put 200 lots under contract for a rental community," Harris said, "and an additional 600 lots for residential living."

Simmie Cooper, a Camden Homes Principal and leader on the project shares, “Camden Homes purpose is to change lives by giving families the opportunity to achieve the American Dream of owning a home.”
Camden Homes makes the dream of living in a home possible by offering clients options. Purchasing a house from Camden Homes can be done through conventional sales with financing from lending institutions or by applying for in-house financing. Camden Homes also provides rental options for those who want the privacy of a home with a yard but are not ready to purchase.

Camden’s houses are built with high quality materials such as real brick masonry, granite countertops and wood-vinyl plank flooring as part of a higher building standard the company has made their standard policy. Camden Homes partnering with Colony Ridge Development has created an opportunity for the company to build several thousand homes in this community over the next five years.

About Camden Homes:
The principals of Camden Homes (Simmie Cooper, Ted Zadeh, and Cyrus Zadeh) with the combined experience of over 60 years have made it their mission to develop homes and provide housing that exceeds the expectations of a consumer’s concept of affordable housing. By holding themselves to a higher building standard and implementing their own finance program, they are able to offer housing for a large portion of the American population that seeks to achieve the dream of becoming a homeowner. Camden Homes understands that a house doesn’t make a home, the people who live in it do, and have carried this philosophy over the thousands of homes they have built.

Real Estate Equity Crowdfunding: A New Investment Opportunity for the Investors

Real Estate Investing: the Passive Income Everybody is Talking About

NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, February 20, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Real estate presents a huge opportunity for investment for the investors whereby they can increase their profit and get significant returns. Different ways are available by which investors can invest in real estate properties. Equity crowdfunding is one of the ways and is a new opportunity for the investors to gain investment.
Read on to know what is: crowdfunding, equity crowdfunding and everything that you should know about this investment instrument.

What is Crowdfunding?

It is a method of raising capital to fund a project through collective efforts of a large number of people like friends, family, customers, who contribute relatively small amount. It is a form of alternative finance and crowdsourcing and is one of the most innovative ways to raise funds for a cause. It comes in many forms, and one of the recent entries to crowdfunding is the real estate industry. Talking in context of real estate, there are 3 ways to invest in a crowdfunded real-estate property:

• Equity crowdfunding
• Syndicated debt crowdfunding
• Platform-issued (‘pre-filled’) debt crowdfunding

What is Equity Crowdfunding?

It is the mechanism wherein a lot of investors provide money to a business in return for equity or shares in the company. It gives an opportunity to anyone to invest in innovative startups and growing companies. It gives the investors part-ownership in business that they help to fund.

Equity Crowdfunding in Real Estate

It is a platform, which helps individuals in becoming partial owners in properties and allows them to fully participate alongside the real estate companies who are involved in acquiring, building or redeveloping a property. It is the most known and used real estate crowdfunding concept. Investors are passive investors, i.e., they do not have to manage the property and are given a fixed share of the profits. Following are the pros and cons of going for equity crowdfunding in real estate:

Pros

• High yield potential: There is a high yield potential as being equity investors, individuals can share in uncapped gains.
• Lower barrier to entry: Even if you have a very less amount of money, you can still invest even in large commercial real estate projects through equity crowdfunding and enjoy the benefits of the real estate i.e., strong returns and lower volatility.
• No self-employment taxes: Since this investment is a passive activity, one need not pay any employment taxes on the profits made on the investment.
• Higher returns: This method seems to provide potentially higher returns than many other investment options available.

Cons

• The risks. Like every other investment, this also comes with risks. An investor should know how to evaluate the risk factors like local economy volatility and chances of higher than expected construction costs. Due diligence is what is required.
• Liquidity constraint: These investments need to be held up for a period of five years or so, and hence one should go for this option if this much bandwidth is available, lack of liquidity is not there, and an investor is comfortable with the invested amount to be tied up for several years.
• It’s still an early option: It is still an early option to be considered as the performance track record and validation is still not complete and individual investors are still trying to figure it out.
• Lack of control: Since it is a passive investment, the investors are not involved in the day to day activities and therefore have limited ability and control over the operations required.

Characteristics of the Investors of Equity Crowdfunding

• The investors have a passive role to play.
• They hold a significant % of ownership, even larger than the sponsors.
• May have some voting rights for important decisions like the sale of property, refinancing, etc.
• They have limited liability, at max what they can lose is what they have invested.

You can continue to invest in real estate in that old traditional way or invest in an investment trust, or you could try doing it the 21st century way, i.e. through crowdfunding. Now that you know everything about this investment option, i.e., equity crowdfunding for real estate, dig a little deeper, consider this option and decide what you feel is best for you!
