Summary of 2010 Assignments

January 4th, 2011

Despite weaknesses in the real estate market and the economy the Cost-Benefit Group obtained and completed a variety of challenging assignments. Unfortunately much of this work involved litigation support, foreclosures, estates or dispute resolution rather than the production of new and better goods and service for the economy. We cannot disclose some of our work at this time and have eliminated details of other projects due to confidentiality agreements. We may be able to provide additional details upon request. The work for these projects included valuations, feasibility studies, forecasts and/or analyses of real estate markets, local economies, neighborhoods, zoning, taxes, and real estate sales and rental activity.
