About Danter and Associates

Danter and Associates is a national independent real estate research and consulting firm providing market research and demographic information in a variety of commercial markets. Danter and Associates has completed over 17,000 studies in all 50 states, Canada, Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands, and Mexico.

Danter and Associates was founded in 1970 by Kenneth Danter and was one of the first firms in the country to specialize in independent real estate research. Since real estate research is our only area of specialization, our recommendations are based on existing and expected market conditions, not on any underlying interests or an effort to sell any other services.

Scope of Services

Site-specific market feasibility studies account for the majority of our projects. We conduct such studies for housing (multifamily, single-family, condominium, student housing, senior housing, and Low Income Housing Tax Credit). We also conduct site specific market studies for other commercial development. including hotels/motels, office buildingsretail, and recreational projects (resorts, marinas, golf courses, etc.).

In addition to site-specific market feasibility research, we also offer consulting services.   We can evaluate site and floor plans, provide recommendations for strategic rehabilitation of poorly performing properties, identify and rank potential markets or sites, identify potential acquisition targets or conduct case studies of similar developments to give you the edge you need to maximize your return on investment.

We also have significant expertise in studying downtown housing and housing-related issues in cities of all sizes, including downtown revitalization and streetcar development.

Experience and Innovation

All our findings are informed by extensive proprietary research that we have been conducting for over 30 years on housing trends and buyer/renter profiles. Results of this research have been widely quoted in The Washington Post, The Boston Globe, USA Today, Builder Magazine, Multi-Housing News, Professional Builder, and publications produced by The Urban Land Institute and American Demographics. Based on this research, Danter and Associates was named 6 consecutive years to American Demographics' "Best 100 Sources for Marketing Information."

Danter and Associates' combination of  primary site-specific research with our proprietary research into market trends has led us to pioneer significant market evaluation methodologies, particularly the use of the 100% database for all market analyses. This Danter concept is of primary importance to real estate analyses because new developments interact with similar market-area projects throughout the rent/price continuum. We survey the entire market area--we don't just guess at selecting comparables that may or may not apply.  Other pioneer methodologies include Effective Market Area (EMA) SM analysis, and the Comparable Rent Analysis.
