The report provides an annual snapshot of the state of the new homes construction market by
surveying the nation’s top residential developers. By directly canvassing those responsible for
the delivery of new supply, the survey shines a light on the opportunities and challenges faced by
developers in meeting market demand.
With the report now in its third year, we have been able to create indexes on a number of topics
to track how developer sentiment is evolving. For example, the results show that developer
activity expanded for the third successive year in 2017, and is expected to strengthen further for
80% of our developers in 2018.
