Market Research That Goes Beyond The Numbers


In today’s world, gathering the statistical data for a market research report is the easy part. Achieving a deeper understanding of the various market forces at play on a specific project requires a more sophisticated approach.

Xpera Group’s market research division is led by Alan Nevin, one of the West Coast’s leading real estate economists. With decades of proven experience in both economics and real estate development, he specializes in producing market strategy studies, which represents a major departure from traditional market research reports.

What is the distinction? Most market research reports include a multitude of pages filled with statistics on the economy and market, followed by brief conclusions and a summary of project recommendations. What is inevitably missing is the most critical element–the strategy and analysis that connect the statistics to the recommendations. That’s where we shine.

Having performed over 1,000 market studies across the United States and as a former chief economist for the California Building Industry Association, Nevin is uniquely positioned to to help ensure your project has the best strategy for success.
