Scope of Services

Market Research

The purpose of research, as we envision is to ensure that the client is posed with sufficient knowledge of all factors bearing on his/her project, to allow decisions pertaining to it are fully informed and rational and that the balance between potential risks and potential rewards are correctly identified.
Successful development is naturally influenced by economic business cycles, which may be global, national or merely local.

 

Accordingly a typical market research assignment considers the whole spectrum or relevancies, beginning with macro-economic circumstances and sifting down to site-specific micro-economic criteria.

  • An attempt is made to discern economic trends and their sustainability
  • Relevant legislation is considered
  • The study area and its property market are reviewed in general overview terms
  • Infrastructure provision and probable effects of any changes are scrutinised
  • Detailed analysis is made of case-relevant property sub-sectors and supply and demand factors are closely examined
  • Consumer research (surveys, focus group discussions)
  • Competitive developments are investigated in detail
  • Optimum solutions are recommended for the subject site, covering matters such as development mix, sizing, pricing and phasing

We have conducted a vast number of studies which includes townships, resorts, hotels, condominiums, offices, retail centres, town centres, residential and industrial properties. In the course of our work we have also undertaken assignments to revive projects, review concepts, reassess positioning and advise on maximising values.
