Housing and Neighborhood Plans
The demand for housing types of all kinds and the specific housing needs of distressed populations are highly correlated with community demographics. Demographics—or the characteristics of human populations—constantly change. People age, families have children, households relocate, housing units deteriorate or are refreshed, tastes in location preferences and housing types shift, and economic opportunities evolve.
Development Strategies has always been a housing market and demographic analysis firm. We conduct numerous micro and macro housing studies every year, from developer-driven projects to housing strategic plans for communities. Our clients range from developers to lenders to property owners to public agencies at all levels of government. Strategically managed housing markets, of course, have a big role in determining the sustainability of neighborhoods and whole cities.
