US Custom Residential Architecture Index (USCRAI)

Introducing the Residential Design / John Burns US Custom Residential Architecture Index.

US Custom Residential Architecture Index

The USCRAI is a diffusion index reflecting weighted responses of custom architecture firms, which aims to track market conditions for custom residential design services nationwide.

Each quarter, we’ll report on project activity (project volume in the most recent quarter vs. the prior year) and near-term activity (project volume growth in the upcoming quarter). The USCRAI also gauges design demand by measuring the overall sentiment of client demand for custom residential design services. Custom residential homes typically make up 20%–30% of single-family starts.
