AGA provides macro- and micro-level analysis of housing markets and site-specific development opportunities through use of its proprietary employment-driven statistical model and field research. Field research and statistical data assist in determining long-term market trends, future absorption potential, and optimal product and pricing recommendations for various types of rental and for-sale housing.
AGA relies on statistical modeling and in-field research of a site area’s retail supply to identify development opportunities for various forms of retail development—neighborhood centers, community centers, power centers, regional centers, outlet centers, and entertainment retail. Careful attention is given to broad area consumer spending trends and localized demographics to identify support potential.
AGA's office model compares changes in office supply relative to employment-driven changes in demand to ascertain absorption potential and future vacancy rates. The statistical model can be supplemented with local broker data or on-site field surveys to optimize development recommendations or evaluate investment strategies.
AGA's industrial model simulates demand and supply conditions for industrial markets to assist in the determination of future vacancy rates, absorption potential, and optimal building sizes. This statistical model is typically supplemented with broker or field survey data to provide qualitative assessments to optimize competitive position of development or enhance existing project performance.
AGA prepares customized fiscal models based on local agency operating budget information to identify the fiscal impact of real estate development. A core objective of the fiscal impact analysis is to determine if project development and occupancy will generate sufficient revenue for the local agency to meet its public service responsibilities.
AGA lodging market analysis focuses on changes in room-night demand, occupancy, and room rates to identify opportunity for development. Alternate levels of analysis can identify market opportunity by distinct pricing segments.
