Market Studies

Market Studies

When investors and developers are considering a new real estate project, there are many ways to value the opportunity.

Investments like this are all about the numbers, so it’s crucial to understand how much the property will produce in cash flow, what it is worth and what type of return it will yield.

BBG provides market studies that establish a clearer picture of a project’s feasibility. Our team of market experts uses their insights and a national database of property information to prepare comprehensive market reports. The deliverable includes supply and demand information, rental and occupancy rates, and comps for similar real estate in the area along with other helpful market information based on the client needs.

Our team also includes National Contract Management Association (NCMA) Certified Professionals with specialized expertise preparing market studies for HUD projects.
