Summit Ridge Mountain Resorts has decided to expand. Because of the popularity of the resort among the business community and families, Summit Ridge has decided to purchase some apartments for guests and seasonal employees to have an extended stay. Because these will prove to be a long-term investment, Summit Ridge has decided to put all complexes on a remodeling rotation to ensure the apartments each have a modern and functional style.
It is now your job to analyze the information regarding the apartments. The owners are looking for some specific information about rentals by apartment size (such as the number of bedrooms per apartment). Based on current housing interest rates, Summit Ridge is considering a sixth apartment complex and has asked you to perform some financial calculations and analyses to determine how adding this new complex to their portfolio enhances the resort’s financial position. They will then use this information to come up with a marketing plan to attract additional customers to the resort.
Remember that you are making a professional analysis and presentation, so be sure to give some thought to what you are trying to recommend to the management of Summit Ridge and why.
