INVESTMENT HIGHLIGHTS

  • BAKKEN OIL PRODUCTION ACTIVITY: 2018 oil prices have been increasing, prompting Bakken oil production activity to reach historic levels. In April, production reached a new record of 1.223 million barrels per day, beating out the previous record set in December 2014 at the height of the oil boom. The first six months brought an average monthly WTI price of $65.46 per barrel. This also beats a 2014 record, which was the last time the monthly average price was above $60 per barrel.
  • CONSTRAINED HOUSING SUPPLY: Due to the resurgence of Bakken oil production activity, Western North Dakota energy markets are experiencing a rapid influx of service workers which is increasing area housing demand. With this demand inching toward outweighing supply, the Badlands II multifamily portfolio is well-positioned as an investment with high-return potential.
  • STABILIZATION UPSWING: The demand for Bakken oil in the global market is not disappearing anytime soon, keeping North Dakota shale play markets on an upward economic trajectory. We are seeing Bakken multifamily vacancy rates shrink to 7% (and dropping) as rental rates increase 28%-32%. With this stabilization upswing, multifamily investors now have a strong opportunity for future returns.

Founder & Managing Principal Mike Elliott and Regional Property Manager Cheri Fox join other industry leaders at the Williston Area Real Estate Summit

Williston, ND  — November 13, 2017 — Energy Real Estate Solutions (ERES), a full-service real estate firm focused on providing brokerage, development, property management, construction management, and consulting services to North American energy markets, announced today that Founder & Managing Principal Mike Elliott and Regional Property Manager Cheri Fox will be speaking at the Williston Area Real Estate Summit: State Of The Market on November 14, 2017. This is the fourth consecutive year that ERES representatives have been asked to speak at the prominent real estate conference.

Joining Williston Mayor Howard Klug who kicks off the one-day event, Elliott and Fox will participate in two of five expert panels comprised of area real estate, investment and development professionals familiar with the Bakken market.

Elliott will lend his vast real estate knowledge to discuss the importance of retail, office and industrial properties in the Williston area. During his panel, Elliott will touch upon current and future leasing trends, new and existing development surrounding the Sloulin Field International Airport, current cap rates and ROI, and recent financing impacts.

Fox is utilizing her local property management expertise to provide attendees with a multifamily market gut-check, speaking on what drives the current market in apartment, senior housing, student housing, and workforce housing property sectors.

“Williston lies in the heart of the Bakken formation and has seen its fair share of meteoric real estate growth and stagnation. The current market is seeing a lot of positive activity, making this an impactful year for real estate investment and development,” says ERES Founder & Managing Principal Mike Elliott. “ERES has been embedded in this market for several years now and I am looking forward to sharing my unique energy-related perspective on what’s happening in the market.”

In 2017, Elliott teamed with over 200 unique energy companies and investors and provided energy-related real estate services in 13 states and three countries, including Williston where ERES has a regional office.  He spends nearly 95% percent of his time in energy markets to provide clients with a first-hand perspective on market conditions and trends.

Minot, ND | Prime Bakken Commercial and Development Property For Auction

By | Real Estate News | No Comments

Prime Minot Real Estate Up For Auction on October 24th

OCTOBER 2, 2017 | MINOT, ND — Continental Auction Real Estate Solutions (CARES), in partnership with Energy Real Estate Solutions (ERES) presents an exciting auction opportunity for prime Bakken Commercial Property and Development tracts in Minot, North Dakota. On Tuesday, October 24, 2017 at 7:00 pm CDT, this prime real estate will be auctioned at the Grand Hotel in Minot, ND. Twelve properties are available, ranging from 5.1 to 160 acres in size. With utility access, highway 83 frontage, and commercial, industrial, and residential zoning, the opportunities for development are endless.

The Bakken oilfield play is a major driver for continued activity in North Dakota. It is estimated that over the next two decades, up to 20 billion dollars a year will be spent in state. Behind Texas, North Dakota is the second highest oil-producing state in the US. An updated oil and gas assessment was recently released by the US Geological Survey, estimating 7.4 billion barrels of undiscovered, technically recoverable oil. “Investing in Bakken real estate is a ‘forward-looking’ strategy that is bound to reap dividends as oil prices stabilize and markets continue to expand,” said Mike Elliott, Managing Director of ERES, a full service real estate firm specializing in the world’s most active energy sites.

Located in north central North Dakota, Minot is the county seat of Ward County and is the trading center for a large portion of northern North Dakota, southwestern Manitoba and southeastern
Saskatchewan. This pro-business community, creates an attractive dynamic for incoming businesses, services and families, as North Dakota currently has the lowest unemployment rate in the nation and over $80 million has been invested in new schools and expansions. Bakken drilling activity will continue to draw people to Minot, expanding the city in population and development. Ultimately, activity in the Bakken will surge in the need for housing, restaurants, retail, schools, transportation, and medical services, and the increase of suppliers to support this industry including rail, pipe, lumber, natural gas plants, and power.

CARES is an international auction company specializing in agriculture and commercial real estate in rural markets. “The auction process will offer a unique opportunity to the public and investors to acquire these properties at ‘fair market value’,” said Scott Tibble, of CARES.
