Research Subscriptions and Services
Accurate Information to Make Great Decisions
Our research process ensures that our clients and consultants have the most current and accurate information possible to make great decisions quickly. Every month, we collect just about every data element possible on the local market, survey local executives, speak with our consultants who are out in the field, and publish our analysis of the local economy and housing market in all of the major Metropolitan Statistical Areas (MSAs). Our clients and consultants carefully vet our research conclusions, comparing them to what they are seeing in the market, and in turn enhance our analysis every month. We have also developed a number of proprietary indices, surveys, and models that deliver a unique view on specific housing industry dynamics.
Clients in an ongoing, retainer-based relationship have access to our published research, client services, and exclusive events.
Every month, we analyze and forecast the housing market at the metro, regional, and national levels to provide you with the information you need for a competitive edge. All of our reports are delivered via email with a short summary, and posted on our website for access 24/7. Based on their needs, clients receive a unique combination of our reports to get the answers they need and gain insight based on their business.
The US Housing Analysis and Forecast, Builder Survey, Real Estate Agent Survey, Public Builder Earnings Summary, and Residential Land Survey come with each research subscription.

Single-Family Rental Survey
The National Rental Home Council (NRHC) and John Burns Real Estate Consulting have partnered on the Single-Family Rental Survey, a first-of-its-kind resource that will serve as the definitive gauge of professionally managed single-family rental industry conditions.
The Single-Family Rental Market Index (SFRMI), which is based on surveys of the owner-operators of more than 200k single-family rental homes, will be released quarterly, so it will always reflect the latest perspectives from within the industry on the state of the SFR market.
The Single-Family Rental Survey is exclusive to clients who subscribe to the Burns Single-Family Rental Analysis and Forecast.
Kitchen and Bath Market Index
National Kitchen & Bath Association (NKBA) and John Burns Real Estate Consulting have partnered on the Kitchen and Bath Market Index (KBMI), a barometer of the business health of the industry.
This quarterly industry index gauges the economic pulse of the kitchen and bath market, examining current conditions and future expectations in the industry. It also monitors issues and challenges industry professionals are facing in their businesses. The KBMI surveys and analyzes the sentiments of designers, manufacturers, retailers and building/construction firms who are members of the NKBA.
The KBMI is exclusive to clients who subscribe to the Burns Building Product Industry Analysis and Forecast.
US Remodeler Index
Created by Qualified Remodeler magazine and John Burns Real Estate Consulting, the US Remodeler Index (USRI) measures remodeler sentiment for current activities, future or near-term activities, as well as consumer demand or ‘hotness.’
The USRI benchmarks current industry growth, near-term project demand and is an independent, frontline view into market trends, shifts, constraints and underlying drivers of professional home repairs and remodels. The USRI is derived from surveys of presidents, owners and managers of 346 remodeling firms in all U.S. 50 states.
The USRI is exclusive to clients who subscribe to the Burns Building Product Industry Analysis and Forecast.
The DIY Meter
Family Handyman and John Burns Real Estate Consulting have collaborated to design a new survey-based activity gauge for the do-it-yourself (DIY) segment of the US residential repair and remodeling market: The DIY Meter.
The DIY Meter serves as an important resource for building product or material manufacturers, suppliers, and retailers who seek to understand their customers’ needs, wants, motivations, and tipping points at a deeper level. Our executive-oriented report delivers an independent, full-color view of the project, design, and spending trends that drive a significant portion of total demand within the US repair and remodeling industry.
