IEc has extensive experience in urban and housing economics, including land use management, development, and transportation issues. Through the development of hedonic property value and other economic models, we assist public and private clients in understanding the impacts of various amenities and disamenties on property values and the effects of regulation on development patterns and real estate markets. This work is typically performed in the context of policy analysis and litigation.
