Countywide and Citywide Housing Assessments



VSI helps counties and cities to better understand their housing needs so they are better equipped to allocate their precious dollars. Areas are established based on their socioeconomic composition. Surveys are completed to identify inventories and occupancy status. Housing assessments can be undertaken for for-sale or for-lease product or a combination of both. For-lease assessments include a comprehensive survey of Tax Credit and government-subsidized rental properties and a survey of market-rate projects throughout the county or city. For-sale assessments include active and established condominium or single-family home products, or a combination of both. The results of this analysis allow the county or city to prioritize its resources and minimize potential competition from future allocations and proposed product.
