REAL ESTATE DEVELOPER
One of America's largest home builders
With climate awareness rising among homebuyers, one of America’s largest home builders sought to map out resilient locations for future housing starts. But it lacked robust data correlating land price forecasts to climate stability. In order to widen the footprint of its land banking strategy and anticipate the next set of fast-growing residential locations, Climate Alpha was used to identify the variables that will most influence liveability and property values. We analyzed both climate models and socio-economic trends, and ranked the counties where land was currently undervalued relative to their potential for appreciation. Our client was able to act on these arbitrage opportunities, deploying capital into geographies of high forecasted demand.
“With the help of Climate Alpha, we were able to provide a new kind of robust real-time intelligence to our land teams looking for an edge as they underwrite in the most competitive acquisition environment in memory.”
