Demographic & Economic Data
Contact Person: Susan L. Mettle

In Real Estate we used to say it’s all about:
LOCATION - LOCATION - LOCATION
We now say all it’s all about:
LOCATION - TIMING - DEMOGRAPHICS

Evaluating the present and future value of real estate requires analyzing underlying population and economic factors. To help clients easily visualize this data, we provide this information using a Geographic Information System (GIS).  Areas can be studied using radii and drive-times from a specific location or from a hand drawn trade area, polygon, or selected geography.

Colin Fox & Associates can provide more than 200 customs customized reports depending on the type of property being analyzed. Below are some examples of packages we have provided our clients for some of these property types. (You will need Adobe Acrobat Reader to view these documents.)

Businesses and Economic Developers use our reports to help identify new locations or attract new businesses. Benchmarking a prospective site to an already successful location highlights the demographic similarities between the sites.

Gap Analysis. In business, Gap Analysis is a tool that helps a company to compare its actual performance with its potential performance. A Retail Gap Analysis for example, can show the difference between retail potential and retail sales. Click Here for a Retail Gap Report example.

Site Comparison Reports: To enable clients to more conveniently compare multiple locations, we can create site comparison reports.
