Senior Living Market Data
While attending the 2016 National Council of Housing Market Analysts (NCHMA) Annual Meeting in Detroit last week, I was struck again by how important a data-driven market study is for planning a new development. A robust market study will be a vital tool to help you plan for your continued success, finance your projects, and continue to grow.

Many wonderful speakers presented at the conference the best way to obtain, use, and analyze data in a market study. Market data — which includes demographics, housing information, population trends, housing trends, and a variety of other valuable data — is also a vital tool to developing policy. Also discussed were the many revitalization and redevelopment projects taking place in the Motor City and how state governments, local governments, and the philanthropy community are collaborating in Detroit.
