MSN Real Estate (MSN) is an Oregon-based real estate company that will offer benchmarked rental units for the Eugene, Oregon community. MSN's units will balance safety, cutting edge features, and a positive atmosphere for all tenants. These rentals will be provided with unmatched levels of customer service and attention. Sales are projected to be substantial in year one growing moderately by year three.
MSN will target three distinct customer segments. The largest segment that they will service is University of Oregon students. This segment is growing at 7% a year with 18, 000 prospective customers. This segment is especially attractive since most of the local rental properties that are geared toward students are run down, poor quality units. The second market segment is local professionals who are increasing at 4% and have 12, 000 potential members. The last segment is faculty and staff of the University. This section has a 5% growth rate and 6, 000 potential customers.
MSN will initially focus their efforts on buying and developing existing properties. Once the properties are purchased, each unit will be hard wired with Internet access, state-of-the-art amenities will be installed, and safety measures will be implemented ensuring a cutting edge, safe environment. This course of action will be initially pursued as a way to efficiently utilize capital and establish a reputation within the community. Future projects may include custom build outs.
