Our Methodology

URBEK founder Gilbert Till begins his 50th year of housing market analysis.

An economic consulting firm specializing in project-specific market analysis, nationwide.

Detailed demand estimates are available as separate products for those clients who have already compiled information about supply. URBEK® has been providing arms-length market analysis services since 1980.

The starting point for any housing market analysis is a profile of households by income, age, size, and tenure, such as the profile shown below. You will see, for example, that quickest way to "overstate" the seniors housing market (with services) is the failure to breakout one person households from total households. This oversight is the most common reason for misjudging the size of seniors housing markets (with services).  Source:https://www.huduser.gov/portal/datasets/spectabs.html

Exclusive, proprietary data and a 35-year track-record.

At URBEK® we bring 35 years of experience working with investors, lenders and developers to provide housing market analysis within the context of contemporary urban economics theory.

Our clients gain access to detailed demand estimates of their target markers.
