Prospectus from Capital Cooperative Corporation:
Loft Beds as a NYC Real Estate Investment Opportunity
by Sander Hicks, CEO
My company makes loft beds that add incredible value to people’s space. Our tag line is “we will double your space without doubling your rent.” In NYC, space is scarce. Loft beds add incredible value. They are fun to make, and our customers are always super-happy. We put our hearts into the work, and select local hardwoods of deep beauty: cherry, walnut, cedar, and catalpa. We have a unique way of building small staircases, and trimming out the lofts to become handsome reflections of nature.
My company, Capital Cooperative Corporation, is a licensed NYC contractor and craft carpentry outfit, with a background in social entrepreneurship. In 2013, we successfully completed various projects in residential and commercial renovation. We formalized our profitable loft-bed-building business with a stand-alone website, http://www.loftbedsnyc.com
I wanted to offer you a business opportunity. We have a unique business model with our loft-building business. It’s time to scale it up.
We are looking for a savvy NYC real estate investor to help us acquire a building in Manhattan or Brooklyn. We are looking for a large, multi-unit apartment building, an old hotel, or industrial building. Perhaps it’s something under-valued because it has too many “studio apartments” or is a raw, unfinished space.
Our sources have a lot of gorgeous hardwoods coming to market this spring. And the New York real estate market is stronger than ever.
It’s time to scale up the loft-building business, and build our first entire apartment building full of them. Whatever we buy the building at, it will be worth twice that within a year. How? By building gorgeous, custom, hand-made lofted spaces, and big loft beds in each bedroom, we will be adding to the available square footage in each unit. The assessable value of each bit of residential real estate will be increased. That’s value you can bank on.
But it’s not just what we will be adding in value, but how. We are offering is a unique blend of authentic, local, organic, craft carpentry. A fresh new way to add value to real estate.
