Catan Enterprises is a member-managed LLC registered in the State of Montana. We have been in existence since January 2011 with the goals of creating and improving the economic, social, and environmental infrastructure of our company and its surroundings. In 2011, we acquired and began construction on a super-insulated home which we finished in 2012. This project established the basis of our business model, which is to acquire underutilized and undervalued properties and add to their value.

Philosophy

Catan strives to improve the lives of its members, tenants, neighbors, and neighborhoods through development and improvement of properties around Helena. By performing high-efficiency infill development, we promote a walkable, more vibrant city environment for our tenants. We choose our properties based on high potential in terms of building additional infrastructure, remodel potential, and up-and-coming neighborhoods. We strive to do our part in increasing the value of our surroundings by creating highly attractive buildings and landscaping.

Management

As the owner of rental properties, Catan strives to streamline the management of the properties it owns. Mr. Perkins has developed a set of cost and time saving rental policies and procedures which allow Catan to effectively market, maintain, and manage our properties to minimize depreciation, maximize occupancy, anticipate the needs and desires of our lessors, and maximize profits.

Strategy

Catan is positioning itself to become a major player in the construction and property management market of Helena Montana, with possible expansions occasionally considered. We are guided by our belief that in our market, profitability, social consciousness, and environmental responsibility go hand in hand. We are careful not to enter into entanglements, nor to over-extend beyond our abilities. Playing conservatively in this arena, we have been able to realize our goals of dramatically increasing our net worths all while maintaining a perfect track record with our creditors (as well as with our tenants). We are looking to expand beyond self-construction into the field of being our own general contractors, with a gradual amping-up of our presence in the field of construction and property management here in Helena. Using in-depth studies of historical trends and patterns of economic and social forces, we thoroughly analyze each project we undertake for profitability as well as potential liabilities.

Members
