Every Local Authority needs accurate, independent, information about their local housing market – including affordability, rents and price trends. This data is essential in informing housing and planning strategies.

Housing Intelligence gives teams up-to-date, detailed, market analysis, presented in a ready-to-use format. It’s used by development, finance and policy teams across the social housing sector.
Understand your stock portfolio at asset level, using our market-leading Automated Valuation Model. Blend this insight for each asset in your portfolio with market intelligence such as rental and capital valuations and affordability indicators.
Whether it’s testing rent policies, assessing social value, identifying alternative tenures or expanding into new markets, our Portfolio service helps you make more informed strategy and asset management decisions.
“Understanding asset value and affordability has never been more important to us in unlocking opportunities. [Hometrack] integrates easily into our appraisal software and provides us with critical insight into our business.”
Luke Beard, Head of Asset Management – Two Rivers Housing Association
Many local authorities have large development programmes that deliver a mix of affordable housing and private sale. This is an emerging area of risk for the sector.
We provide independent, localised market intelligence to inform land acquisition and sales and marketing strategies. We enable planning teams to understand the market context for development, and the impact of trends on a scheme’s viability. This analysis can also be used for internal reporting and executive sign off.
We use the intelligence from the Hometrack system to inform our strategic planning for future developments, by our scheme appraisal process to evidence viability, and in our marketing reports to support Low Cost Home Ownership development.
Tony Quigley, Sovereign Housing Group and Chair of South West Home Ownership Group
We use Hometrack successfully in affordable housing negotiations, for easy access to data about the private sector, and we regularly use the affordability calculator when assessing applicants for our shared equity properties.
