How To Research Future Housing Growth In An Area

REAL ESTATE INVESTING

How do you research an area and find out what the future housing growth of a certain area will be?   Find the Association of Governments (regional planning agency) website, which will tell you where the new roadways, railroads, airports, and transportation ways will be built based on government research of population growth predictions.

For Southern California, use this website – http://www.scag.ca.gov/ – Southern California Association of Governments (SCAG).  It  plans transportation arterials (trains, roadways, freeways, tollways) based on projected CA job and population growth between now and 2020/2030.  Click here for excerpts from the reports listed below.  The specific reports to review are:

  1. 2008 Regional Transportation Report
  2. 2008 Freeways and Arterials Report
  3. 2008 Forecast Report

Note: There’s a regional Association of Governments, or Planning & Development Organization, in most areas.  For Phoenix, for example, it’s the Maricopa County Association of Governments (MAG).
