Real Estate Consulting Capabilities

Market Feasibility

Clients often engage us in the early stages of a project for guidance on housing product opportunities and performance goals.

Home Price Absorption Recommendations

For each project, we can identify the most market-appropriate housing types, down to individual floor plans. Our recommendations include pricing and absorption targets for these homes.

Rent and Lease-Up Recommendations

We can refine or define the right rental housing to build, including product types and floor plans. Our analyses include rent and lease-up projections for each product type.

Product Recommendations

From recommending what to build to making improvements, we help clients maximize their position in the market. In addition to consultants examining thousands of communities each year, our New Home Trends Institute curates the most innovative home design trends.

Masterplan Segmentation by Product Type

Our segmentation strategies help master-plan developers sell through multiple product types at the same time. We help ensure homebuilders have clear and well-defined opportunities within each masterplan.

Housing Demand Analysis

Our proprietary quantitative demand models identify the depth of demand and opportunities in for-sale and rental housing. We analyze current and future trends in home sizes, prices, rents, incomes, and life stages within specific market areas.

Consumer Targeting

Our experienced consultants help clients target consumers and identify home designs and community features to attract them. In addition, surveys from our New Home Trends Institute offer unparalleled insight into new-home shopper preferences.

Amenity Analysis

We understand how amenities interconnect to create a unique lifestyle for residents. Our guidance helps clients develop the right amenities at the right scale to maximize the appeal of residential real estate.

Market Expansion Strategy and Rankings

We pair quantitative models with national expertise to identify markets with the strongest opportunities for residential real estate investment. Our guidance incorporates the criteria clients consider most important.

Acquisition Due Diligence

We work with clients to determine the market potential for new residential real estate acquisitions. Potential deals can range from raw land to existing apartments and rental neighborhoods.

M&A, IPOs, Portfolios, and Cash Flows

Our team has extensive homebuilding, development, and finance backgrounds. We can complete portfolio analyses, including financial models to estimate revenues, values, and returns in the M&A and IPO process.

Highest and Best Use

We identify land uses that maximize the opportunity for onsite development. Our guidance can help set the vision for a community, giving our clients a clear path forward.

Mixed-Use Strategy

Our team has a deep understanding of how residential and commercial uses interact. We create strategies where the mix of uses is greater than the sum of its parts.

Home Design Trends

Our consulting team is at the forefront of home design trends. We see hundreds of new-home communities each year, and curate the best designs in our New Home Trends Institute.
