Kading built its first property in Osceola in 1996, and today have more than 150 front doors within the city. In December, the family-owned business, and longtime community partner, will add its newest development, The Meadows, bringing 40 single family homes to the area.
“With more than 4,800 non-farm jobs, Osceola’s workforce is in high demand,” said Bill Trickey, executive director of Clarke County Development. “By providing an abundance of attractive and affordable residential solutions, Kading plays a key role in residents getting settled in our community and creating a future in Osceola.”
The Meadows, conveniently located off Truman Road, offers easy access to Highway 34 and Interstate 35. It is also close to Warren Family Park and shopping. The development offers three-bedrooms, two-baths with a two-car attached garage. All rents are market rate.
“The city’s partnership with Kading in The Meadows development provides a much-needed injection of market rate rental properties for the Osceola market, while also redeveloping a blighted area that had little chance to develop on its own,”said Ty Wheeler, Osceola city administrator.
“It’s always a pleasure working with Osceola to bring quality rental options to the market,” said Karie Kading Ramsey, CEO of Kading. “The homes are a hot commodity.”
Research shows more people are wanting to rent than own, with baby boomers and millennials leading the trend.
“People are busy with work and families or with traveling to see grandkids,” Ramsey said. “And in our developments, we do the work for our clients – snow removal, lawn mowing, any work needed inside – which makes it an appealing home for young professionals, busy families or empty-nesters.”
