2017 HOUSING MARKET DEMAND STUDY
The impetus for a Muscatine housing study stems from existing market forces and their effect on current residents, potential new residents, and growth. A housing study for Muscatine serves several purposes including leveraging incentives, identifying housing gaps today and tomorrow, building on economic strengths, accommodating for all ages, and as a guidance to decision makers. This housing study is a resource for many people and organizations including city staff, regional builders and developers, local employers, and economic development organizations.
