URBEK founder Gilbert Till has more than 50 years experience in housing market analysis, including 12 years at HUD.

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).

Exclusive, proprietary data and a 40-year track-record.

At URBEK® we bring 40 years of experience working with investors, lenders and developers to provide housing market analysis within the context of contemporary urban economics theory.
