Real estate markets are driven by demographic and economic trends, attitudes of different population groups, life cycles, and technological change. At SB Friedman, we analyze these forces to provide our clients with an in-depth understanding of real estate market trends, financial feasibility of projects, impacts of infrastructure on development, and the relationships between transportation and land use. Working with all major land uses, we reconcile supply and demand to project trends and impacts, and to envision future development.
Our assessment of the financial feasibility of real estate projects helps our clients test development scenarios and make policy or investment decisions. This analysis is based on market drivers of absorption and pricing, operating methods and costs, estimates of total development cost, financing structures, and required risk-adjusted return on investment. Our work informs strategies for single- and multi-use developments as well as planning projects ranging from transforming a redevelopment site to understanding the market potentials and impacts of transportation investments at the site, community and corridor scales.
