What Makes Foley & Puls Different?
At Foley & Puls, we do things differently. We don't just gather data and create reports, we focus on the measures of market performance. Our Market Research for multifamily real estate looks beyond the high-level indicators such as current market performance, inventory structure, employment growth and new supply. We delve into the details – where the real performance of a project is determined - taking into consideration demographic projections, renter spending habits, income-driven demand, household income being captured, inventory structure and price sensitivity by unit type and square footage range.
The depth of our analysis defines where a project’s potential can be enhanced. Because the war for the consumer is won at the unit-type level, we examine the market at the unit-type and square footage level.
Foley & Puls utilizes economic data and forecasts from governmental, public and private sources in the preparation of our reports. Sources include: US Census, Bureau of Labor and Statistics, Texas Workforce Commission, Federal Reserve, Texas A&M University Real Estate Dept., Nielsen/Claritas as well as employment data from state and local governments.
We use our methodology when we evaluate an investment opportunity whether it is a For-Sale, or Rental project. Although our modeling is essentially the same, we tailor the research and reports to reflect the individual aspects of the Rental and For Sale market.

- Market Performance
- Current and Future Supply
- Target Markets
- Demand Drivers (Macro & Micro)
