Compass Home Buyers Offers Home-Selling Solutions for Tampa Residents

TAMPA, Fla. (STL.News) – Compass Home Buyers offer practical solutions for people looking to sell their home for cash in the Tampa Bay area. While the traditional route of selling a home involves listing a home on the market with the help of an agent, Compass Home Buyers gives homeowners the option to sell their house for cash quickly, and easily. With a service area extending 100 miles around Tampa, Compass Home Buyers provides thousands of Florida residents with the opportunity to sell their house, regardless of condition.

Compass Home Buyers is a local, family-owned company founded by experienced real estate investors who wanted to put people first. Instead of waiting weeks for prospective buyers to express interest in buying their listed home, individuals who partner with Compass Home Buyers can receive an offer on their home quickly, often on the same day they contact the company. In many cases, Compass Home Buyers can close on a home in as few as five business days. This makes their services very convenient and effective for homeowners who need to sell their house without delay.

Compass Home Buyers are an option for individuals and families who need to sell their house quickly due to a variety of common scenarios. Some of these scenarios include financial hardship with the risk of foreclosure, divorce in which neither party wishes to maintain ownership of the home, relocation for work or family, inheriting an unwanted property, and stalled or problematic house-flipping projects. Compass Home Buyers also provides a solution for individuals who have difficult-to-sell homes. This may include a property that is outdated or located in an unappealing area. Many individuals in these situations realize that they do not have the time, patience, or energy to sell their house on their own or with an agent.

Individuals who are interested in selling their house for cash to Compass Home Buyers can benefit in a number of ways. According to the company, people can sell their home in any condition, meaning that damaged and unfinished homes are acceptable candidates. Compass Home Buyers cover all costs a homeowner may accrue during the home-selling process, including inspection and closing costs. They also do not charge any fees or commission. There are no showings required — the only time someone will visit the property is during the inspection. Occupants do not need to clean the home, complete repairs, or remove furniture prior to moving out. Clients can often arrange for flexible move-out deadlines if they need to occupy the home for a short time after closing.

With accessible, professional services in the Tampa Bay area and beyond, Compass Home Buyers strives to make selling homes in any condition easy. Individuals who would like to learn more about working with Compass Home Buyers can contact their office or submit a property questionnaire at

Skyline Tower Named as New York’s Top Selling Luxury Real Estate Development in 2019

NEW YORK (STL.News) – Move over Manhattan, there is a new luxury condominium in the neighborhood! Located in Long Island City, the 67-story development, Skyline Tower, is now leading sales in New York’s luxury real estate market. With a booming transit hub and rapidly growing neighborhood, Long Island’s skyline and real estate market have changed tremendously in the past decade. At the start of 2019, rising interest rates caused many buyers to halt their plans in purchasing condominiums. Located in one of the world’s most competitive markets, the increasing interest rates did not deter buyers from exploring their future home at Skyline Tower. In 2019, the tower managed to close 210 condo contracts, making it the top selling luxury real estate development. The project is a joint venture of Risland Holdings, LLC, United Construction & Development Group and FSA Capital LLC.

– In addition to Skyline Tower, Risland has two projects in the United States –

Located in Prosper, Texas, Legacy Gardens is an upscale boutique 300-acre single-family masterplan community. The perfectly-sized development provides all the amenities and lifestyle benefits of a large, master-planned community with the intimacy of a smaller, more connected neighborhood.
Mantua, a 25-year project with a 2,950-acre mixed-use community within two cities, Van Alstyne and Anna, Texas, will be reshaping the growth of North Texas. The first phase of the development, called Mantua Point, will include nature trails, beautiful amenities, a dog park, a pool and several gathering areas. Ultimately, the development is projected to have more than 6,000 homes and over 600 acres of commercial, office and mixed-use space while adding more jobs and a building a better economy in both Van Alstyne and Anna.
While Skyline Tower is well underway with an impressive sales performance in 2019, Risland is developing world class residential and commercial real estate projects through a vertically integrated operating model. It combines the talent of local professionals using local vendors utilizing the experience and resources of its international partners to accomplish this goal. Risland seeks to develop profitable projects and focus on the responsibility to the surrounding environment and the well-being of the neighboring communities. They are committed to be successful in the local market and using green practices and be mindful of social responsibilities while promoting healthy lifestyles for individuals, families and providing jobs to the local community and the society at large.

Risland also plays a big part globally in the real estate market while keeping a close watch on global sustainable developments. With 12 projects around the world including the United States, New Zealand, Australia, Thailand, India, Indonesia, etc., it is becoming an innovative driver in both urban developments and residential markets.

The Collective Inks Lease On New SoHo Office Space To Support Rapid Growth Of U.S. Operations

NEW YORK (STL.News) – The Collective, the leading global co-living company based in New York, London and Berlin, today announced its U.S. base of operations’ move to new office space in the duplex penthouse of the SoHo Building in the heart of Manhattan’s vibrant SoHo neighborhood at 110 Greene Street. The move comes amid a period of rapid U.S. growth for the company, which in 2018, acquired its first New York ground-up development site at 555 Broadway in Brooklyn and started up its New York head office in order to go global with its mission: to build and activate space that fosters human connection and enables people to lead more fulfilling lives.

Comprised of 9,397-square-feet, The Collective’s U.S. headquarters will occupy the top floor and penthouse level of 110 Greene Street. Completed in 1920 and recently upgraded by ownership, the SoHo Building features high ceilings, open floorplates, oversized windows, wood flooring and historic details including exposed brick and industrial design elements. The Class A building is LEED Gold certified. Alexander Golod and Neil King of CBRE represented The Collective.

“We’re thrilled to be setting deeper roots in New York as a foundation for our further expansion both here in NYC and across the country” said Simon Koster, The Collective’s Head of U.S. Development. “One of the core objectives of our work at The Collective is to create innovative and collaborative spaces within our co-living locations, and it was important to us to provide our team with workspace reflective of those values.”

Since 2018, The Collective has been rapidly expanding its already deep bench of design, development, architecture, finance, community and hospitality experts in the United States. In 2019, Koster joined The Collective to lead this interdisciplinary team, which has grown to over 30 professionals, in the delivery across The Collective’s growing U.S. pipeline of co-living projects.

In December, the company announced its latest ground-up development and sixth acquisition in the United States at 292 North 8th Street in central Williamsburg, Brooklyn. This, and The Collective’s two previously announced Brooklyn projects, 555 Broadway and 1215 Fulton Street, are all projected for completion in 2022. Also in development by The Collective are 2825 NW Second Avenue in Miami, Florida’s Wynwood District and 633 LaSalle in Chicago, Illinois.

In November of last year, the firm opened The Collective Paper Factory, establishing The Collective’s first foothold in the United States. Paper Factory also marked the global debut of the company’s short-stay model and the start of an explorative, collaborative cultural program dedicated to housing innovation and community-building in cities.

To date, The Collective has raised over $1 billion to fund its growing global network of co-living spaces, offering thoughtfully designed efficiencies in the private living space to create a surplus of square footage for unique shared amenities and experiences, bringing to life its vision of making co-living an option for people all over the world.

About The Collective

The Collective is a leading co-living pioneer building long and short stay communities across a growing, global network of cities. Its unique spaces combine thoughtfully designed private living solutions with communal and public amenities, to promote connection, growth and inspiration amongst members and benefit the surrounding neighborhood.

In the context of increasingly isolating urban environments, The Collective seeks to create a positive impact and foster human connection through dynamic cultural programs designed to bring people together.

Founded in London in 2010 by CEO Reza Merchant, The Collective has grown from offering small house shares to owning and operating the world’s largest co-living project, with over 9,000 units operating or under development across the U.K., U.S. and continental Europe. The 350+ strong team headquartered across New York, London and Berlin has raised nearly $1bn to fund its international growth, bringing to life its vision of making co-living an option for people all over the world.

In joint partnership with DTZ Investors, a specialist European real estate fund manager, The Collective launched COLIV, the world’s first institutional large-scale co-living fund, with the aim of raising up to £650 million ($840 million) in equity commitments to acquire or forward-fund between six and ten co-living assets in London.

The Collective Old Oak in London opened in 2016 with 546 rooms, which have since operated at 97 per cent occupancy. In 2019 The Collective opened new flexible stay co-living projects: Canary Wharf in London, and Paper Factory in Long Island City, New York.
