Real estate markets are driven by demographic and economic trends, attitudes of different population groups, life cycles, and technological change.  We analyze these forces to provide an understanding of real estate market trends, financial feasibility of projects, impacts of infrastructure on development, and the relationships between transportation and land use.
Successful, quality development results from the synthesis of community goals and input, market and financial considerations, and physical constraints. Our work begins with including all stakeholders to create a shared vision and continues with preparing plans, programs, strategies and action steps to execute the vision.
Most major community and economic development efforts require public-private partnerships to overcome land assembly, site remediation, market, infrastructure and construction cost issues. SB Friedman is a leader in establishing public-private partnerships and structuring public-private finance transactions for development and infrastructure projects.
SB Friedman is a nationally recognized provider of New Markets Tax Credit (NMTC) consulting services. We consult routinely for all types of participants in the NMTC program, ranging from project sponsors who are seeking to access financing for their projects, to Community Development Entities (CDEs) who are hoping to obtain tax credit allocations from the US Treasury, to NMTC investors and lenders looking to participate in the program.
