Is Abandoned Construction An Early Signal For Economic Change?


Could examining abandonment trends over the course of an economic downturn uncover a possible connection to the housing crisis, or even reveal a new leading indicator?

  • Abandoned construction as a leading indicator and today’s outlook
  • Possible hidden risks these trends expose
  • Commercial sector analysis for lodging-resort, healthcare, and retail
