Housing Study and Strategy for Northwest Michigan
As part of the Regional Prosperity Initiative, Networks Northwest contracted with marketing consultants Land USA to develop target market analyses for each county in the region. These residential housing studies identify future market demand for various types of housing, based on analysis of existing and emerging demographic trends.
An understanding of housing market needs and preferences is important for communities working to attract investment and development. These studies are intended as resources for communities, nonprofits, the private sector, and others working to understand local housing needs and plan more effective housing initiatives.
Reports are available for all ten counties.

Our Township greatly benefits from Network Northwest's experience, depth of knowledge and understanding. Because they work with so many diverse communities in our ten-county region they understand the local land-use issues and are already working on solutions by the time we realize we need some help.Susan Odom, Chair, Suttons Bay Township Planning Commission
