Welcome to the Market Barometer – an “insider” news medium focusing on positive trends in the recreational, residential, and resort community development industry.
This newsletter was developed as an alternative to the traditional media maxim that bad news sells.
Since 1991 we have revealed countless positive trends, providing direction and support to a wide variety of industry professionals. Professionals that can benefit from Market Barometer content include developers, homebuilders, realtors, attorneys, land planners, architects, golf and hospitality facility managers and operators, lenders, and ancillary industry specialists including marketing and sales, public relations, and investors.
News is news, but the Market Barometer is diagnosis – the prescription for a challenging news environment where confusing and often contradictory data, misinformation, and biased opinions serve to waste your time.
We do the work — distilling and verifying the myriad data so you — the decision-maker — have a clear understanding of today’s market dynamics and trends.
The Market Barometer is fresh, and the information is fact-checked and solid. Its content embodies real-time trends reported in context and supported by hands-on research and analysis developed by experienced market specialists. Editorial departments include:
|Barometric Beat||Amenity Articulation||Acquisition Activity|
