Research and Consulting Services for Developers, Lenders, Asset Managers and Investors
Our methodology creates a forward-view of a multifamily project’s potential by integrating intense research into market fundamentals such as performance, inventory structure, rent increases, renter incomes, rent premiums and unit absorption data with projections of demographic trends and income-driven demand per unit type.
Market Research and Analysis
Developing an apartment or condominum project requires knowledge of the current market and an understanding of the factors that affect demand, such as economic factors, supply and absorption rates. In-depth market research, together with our experience in residential development over the last 30 years, provides insight into market performance and project potential to real estate investors, developers, owners and lenders.
As markets add supply and new employers, demand changes. This change in demand drives market performance. Because each project is a unique investment, we create customized research and analyze the market performance based on the site, the project concept, market changes and future demand. Every market research report is designed to address underwriting concerns and provide our clients with strategic information to improve on the project’s potential.
Development Consulting & Product Strategy
The difference between a project that truly capitalizes on location, demand and pricing opportunities and one that under-delivers can be measured in the return on investment. Our development consulting services allows developers and asset managers to leverage our knowledge and experience to design new product concepts and maximize the performance of rental and for-sale projects.
We work together with our clients to create product mixes, pricing strategies and project concepts to optimize the apartment or condominium project’s potential to achieve pricing goals and sales/lease-up projections.
