Rental Rates Increase, Vacancy Rates Decrease

TACOMA, WA--(Marketwire - March 13, 2008) - Cascadia Investments, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: CDIN) is pleased to announce that its current portfolio of eleven rental properties is operating at full occupancy with an average of one or two days between vacancies due to a waiting list of prospective tenants. This is occurring even during the traditionally high-vacancy winter months.

The current turmoil in the real estate markets is creating a huge demand for rental accommodations as many people are forced to downsize. This condition is putting an upward pressure on rental rates as demand increases and availability decreases -- a trend that should continue into the foreseeable future.

As a result, the company plans to review each of its properties over the next few weeks and implement rent increases of five to ten percent where appropriate, which will result in a positive impact on its earnings over the next couple of quarters. This will translate into increased revenue and a higher rate of return on its holdings.
