FAQs

Q?How does RPP work with clients?
A.

We can work with clients on both a project specific basis and in longer term consulting arrangements. Clients may use our services for a single market, feasibility, or other study, or may wish to call upon us at various stages in a project lifecycle.  Additionally, clients may engage us on an ongoing basis to help them understand the evolving competitive landscape and to stay at the forefront of emerging market trends.

Q?Can RPP help identify opportunities in my marketplace?
A.

Yes!  With our sensitivity to supply/demand dynamics and product and consumer trends, we can identify unseen or underserved niches in any marketplace and provide the product, pricing, and other guidance needed to help you take advantage of them.

Q?Is now the right time to plan?
A.

Never has robust, reality-based planning been more essential than in today’s post-crisis market environment. Not only are pockets of opportunity emerging in markets across the country, but old models and modes of building and selling homes are changing. Planning is key to engaging the “new normal” of today’s housing market. Existing markets become increasingly complex with time. New markets carry inherent risks that must be understood and mitigated. And above all, opportunity waits for no one.

Q?How long does a typical research assignment take?
A.

Our single-study assignments generally take from two to four weeks, depending on the complexity of the project and the amount of field work required.  Expedited time frames are also available.

Q?What deliverables will I receive from RPP?
A.

Our reports are most often delivered as summary memoranda, full reports with supporting discussions and documentation, and/or in person presentations with supporting tables, graphs, and charts.  We can also customize a deliverable format to meet your needs.

Q?I don’t know where to start or have a clear understanding of what I need. Can RPP help me to define my needs?
