By working smarter and leveraging our extensive network and experience, Ascension maximizes the value of a development—not only in terms of economics, but what it can offer to investors, businesses, residents and the community as a whole.

Economic Feasibility and Development Potential

The economic feasibility of a project must be well established in order to attract investment capital. Our financial feasibility assessment of real estate opportunities help our clients test development scenarios to make highly informed investment decisions. This assessment is based on market drivers such as: absorption and pricing, operating methods and costs, estimates of total development costs and timing, financing structures, and required risk-adjusted returns on investment. Our development modeling techniques come from a combined experience of well over a half century, rooted in accounting and valuation as well as development and financing expertise. This allows us to create strategies for single and multi-use developments as well as planning projects ranging from re-imagining and designing a redevelopment site to understanding the market potential for a site due to our ability to foresee entitlement probability.

We carefully vet and select project consultants, saving our clients considerable time and money throughout the development cycle. We establish realistic budgets and schedules that provide the basis for an appropriate financial evaluation of real estate opportunities. Services provided include:

  • Market Demand Analysis
