A Comprehensive Platform of Possibilities

The Right Eyes on Your Project. Our Eyes Fixed Forward.

Advisory

Data-Driven Planning

MLA Advisory is an authority on the Canadian real estate market and project implementation. Our dedicated Advisory team maintains an exhaustive understanding of market intelligence. Trusted expertise and knowledge, combined with our deep comprehension of buyer demographics, produce effective and strategic solutions for every individual market context and opportunity. The objective is always the same – create lasting value and, ultimately, results. The expert MLA Advisory team approaches each project with pragmatism and data-driven insight.

MARKET INTELLIGENCE

Confidently understanding the environment you operate in places your development at an advantage. We undertake an in-depth investigation of external data, such as market trends, absorptions, and pricing. Our exploration spans from macro and micro trends and market transaction values to a full competitive absorption summary and demand analysis.

PRODUCT DESIGN

Creating a product that will appeal to the marketplace rests on the alignment of several variables. Once an optimal location has been selected, we begin a successful product design initiative by tapping into our market intelligence and defining the target market. This in turn is the foundation which will influence product types, unit mix planning, designing for utility, livability, overall aesthetic, and sales results.

PRICE ANALYSIS

A strategic pricing analysis is conducted by drawing from comparables and evaluating market forecasts and complex proforma statements. Our goal is to compose a multi-faceted pricing position that will deliver tremendous value and results, maximizing our clients’ objectives including revenue and absorptions. MLA Advisory’s analytical aptitude will uncover solutions to any pricing challenge.

Pennyfarthing Homes is committed to quality, value, and service excellence, and we expect the same from our partners. We continue to be impressed by MLA Canada’s market intelligence, collaborative approach, results-focused solutions, and outstanding project management.
