What We Do
Most popular analysis
For any client who has a particular housing market analysis request, or what we call a “presenting problem,” to which we provide a deeply customized solution, tailored to the client's unique needs.
In close discussion with the client, we will help clarify the presenting problem, research strategies to approach it and provide recommendations for them with the attention to detail and awareness of the big picture that is unique to Krueger Economics.
Project Feasibility Study
For builders and funds holding real estate investments
A feasibility analysis tailored to the builder team managing a project or several projects at the masterplan level or tract level (including packages of lower equity tier projects). The study confirms current positive management practices and/or devises an alternative housing product and pricing plan.
Pricing and absorption of selected projects are compared to the competition within the defined competitive market area. We provide a comprehensive buyer profile and pyschographic analysis to determine the best housing product mix for the consumer.
Localized Job Driven Housing Demand
Find out how much demand your projects can support
A thorough housing demand analysis that evaluates specified project cyclical demand structure based on job data while operating under very few assumptions.
Resident worker data organized by major industry are analyzed in conjunction with county level salary data and affordability calculations based on the project’s price and overall salaries in order to determine demand levels.
The analysis is ideal for top management and project managers who need to understand the cyclical demand structure of any project from individual tracts to master planned communities or apartments.
Opportunity Market Matrix
Anticipates the timing of the housing market
An econometric model that identifies and anticipates cyclical changes in the residential housing market. The model is based on an aggregate of 10 supply and demand factors used to predict downward and upward trends in residential real estate.
In applying the model to historical data, the investment matrix anticipates the timing of the housing market bubble and downturn one year in advance. The model is applicable at any level of scale, from local submarkets to metropolitan areas to the national level.
Find the best investment locations
A ranking of any chosen set of cities or zip code based communities (subject to client exclusivity agreements) that serves as an investment guide for top decision-makers in the building industry and investing community.
Our model takes into consideration a host of economic and socio-economic factors including medium-term historical price growth based on local job information, key demographic data, median household incomes, and school scores. A supply and demand model based on expected price movements provides insight about over or undersupplied cities in the research set.
Our holistic approach looks at these factors and more in determining the city ranking. A great presentation tool for investment committees in part because it tracks historical ranking changes and makes predictions about future growth and decline of specified areas.
Millenial Housing Research
For targeting groups of millennial consumers
Millenials are extremely diverse income-wise, regionally and in what they want out of a place to live. Contrary to popular belief, more Millenials live in suburban areas than city centers. Following this generation through its various life stages is absolutely crucial for the health of the housing industry.
We provide analysis on a wide range of topics pertaining to Millenials including demographics, income, and consumer and product preferences. Our analysis can provide ideal housing product recommendations for target groups of Millenial consumers by competitive market area.
