Housing Studies and Strategies

Our Housing Services

Comprehensive Housing Needs Assessments

We provide a thorough evaluation of the housing characteristics and trends in each community or region to determine how the existing supply of housing is aligned or misaligned with the current and future needs of the community. Our methods include:

  • Employer and community surveys
  • Public workshops and other engagement events
  • Data analysis of public and proprietary data sources
  • Affordable and workforce-attainable housing analysis
  • Housing insight interviews and focus groups
  • Housing needs modeling and projections

Housing Strategies

The housing challenges and opportunities are unique in each community, and our housing strategies are tailored to those unique needs.

Solving complex housing issues requires a holistic and creative approach, including new approaches to land use regulations, infrastructure, public-private partnerships, organizational capacity and collaboration, and funding methods, among others. Our strategies provide detailed implementation steps that are aligned with the priorities and capacities of public officials, staff, and local partners.

Housing Development Market Studies

We work with housing developers of all types to prepare market feasibility studies for affordable, workforce, market-rate, senior, mixed-use, and other housing projects. Whether a project is four units or 400, our team knows how to assess market opportunities and provide trustworthy and reliable conclusions relied upon by developers, underwriters, grant administrators, and public officials.
