Research Services We use research to help our clients understand emerging trends and take advantage of the cyclical—and therefore, somewhat predictable—nature of real estate. There are winners and losers in every market, no matter the market conditions: sometimes the market favors owners, sometimes it favors occupiers. Sometimes buyers are in the driver’s seat; sometimes the sellers are in control. We help you harness this insight to make long-term decisions that affect your business and financial portfolio. That means connecting the dots between new construction starts, absorption and overall economic growth in a region. It also means guarding against trends that could squeeze your business out of the expansion space it needs to thrive, or trends that could thwart a redevelopment project before it’s delivered to market. Services include lease rates, subleasing, shadow space, opinion of value, defining your ‘competitive set,’ market activity, growth, incentives, expansion and mapping.
