Leavitt Digital Breaks into Institutional Real Estate with Priced to Market Student Housing Portfolio Estimated to Sell for as Much as $85MM


Leavitt Digital is excited to add Triad Real Estate Partners’ newest listing to Leavitt Digital’s Free Commercial Listing Platform. Triad Real Estate Partners recently listed a 42 property Student Housing Portfolio with assets at Northern Illinois University, Western Illinois University, and Southern Illinois University. The 98.76% occupied Star Properties Portfolio contains 980 Units, and has the upside of rent increases.

Sean Lyons of Triad Real Estate Partners spoke with Leavitt Digital in detail about this offering; both Triad Real Estate Partners and the portfolio owner feel this offering should be listed as “Priced to Market”. This portfolio offering is a very unique opportunity and Triad is already seeing serious demand from student housing investors all over the country. Both Triad Real Estate Partners and the portfolio owner are confident the market will dictate the price on this portfolio and it will ultimately fetch a sales price as much as $85 Million.

This portfolio is Student Housing and the location is in the Secondary Markets; both of which have seen a growing surge of investment dollars. Even with the growing levels of interest and capital flowing into Student Housing and Secondary Markets investors are still able to find above average returns within this product type and these markets when compared to Institutional Office, Industrial, Retail, and Apartments in the Primary Markets.

“Leavitt Digital is excited Triad Real Estate Partners sees the value in   adding its Institutional Student Housing portfolio to Leavitt Digital’s Free Commercial Listing Platform. Without an official price tag (estimated $85+ Million) on this portfolio it is the highest priced offering listed on Leavitt Digital to date. We are reaching milestones every day, just recently Leavitt Digital surpassed $1 Billion in listings on its Free Commercial Real Estate Listing Platform. Triad Real Estate Partners listing this portfolio on Leavitt Digital further validates Leavitt Digital’s becoming a commodity in the commercial real estate market,” said Brendan Hotchkiss, CEO of Leavitt Digital.

Leavitt Digital Surpasses $1 Billion in Commercial Real Estate Listings Within First 90 Days of Launching Free Commercial Real Estate Listing Platform

Screen Shot 2015-10-21 at 10.02.37 AM

Leavitt Digital, a commercial real estate marketing company recently launched its proprietary, FREE commercial listing and search platform.  “Within 90 days of launching Leavitt Digital’s Free Listing Platform we have accumulated over One Billion Dollars in commercial real estate listings from major brokerage firms around the country,” said Brendan Hotchkiss, Founder and CEO.

Hotchkiss has been in commercial real estate for close to 15 years and used other commercial listing platforms and grew tired of their never ending rate hikes and limitations. “I felt the fees to use the other platforms were outrageous, so I used the limited, free version of their platform. On the limited, free version you can only see deals that are 30 days old and passed over by all the premium members.  So, I was seeing shopped deals that have been passed over by all the premium members for at least 30 days.  Applying this logic to the list side- why would you want to list on a platform that charges you and limits your listings exposure?  It didn’t make sense to our team, so we decided to create an entirely free platform that allows everyone to view all listings immediately upon posting.

Unlike paid listing platforms, that only offer the ability to list assets for sale and for lease, Leavitt Digital offers the ability to list assets for sale, for lease, seeking debt, seeking equity, and loans for sale.  The only existing platforms to connecting commercial real estate borrowers/ sponsors with debt and equity are either designed for institutional clients, or for crowd-funding deals and those all cost the sponsor a fortune to utilize. Having a background in real estate investment banking Hotchkiss felt it was necessary to implement both a debt and equity listing platform into Leavitt Digital’s Free Listing Platform.

Leavitt Digital has been asked a number of times when it plans to convert to a paid listing platform and the answer is NEVER.  Leavitt Digital generates revenues from its other platforms: Local Search Engine Optimization and Review Monitoring for Commercial Real Estate, Organic Search Engine Optimization for Commercial Real Estate, and Press Release Distribution.  According to Hotchkiss “We have no interest in converting Leavitt Digital’s Free Commercial Listing Platform to a paid listing platform, not now, not ever. Leavitt Digital is not a publicly traded company catering to shareholder interests; we rolled out this platform to increase market connectivity and have a positive impact on the commercial real estate industry.”

Listings can be added on Leavitt Digital manually (one at a time) via Leavitt Digital’s client dashboard, or multiple listings can be added via Leavitt Digital’s bulk listing template available upon request.  Please contact Leavitt Digital for any additional information: info@ldcre.com
