Where Should I Start Looking For a Location?

There are a number of ways to narrow down where to locate your medical business, depending on where you are in the process.

  • Scenario 1: You have no idea where to open your practice.
  • Start with our Positive Area Identification Mapping, a grid system that identifies the pros and cons of locations within a defined area to identify the best spot to open your business.
  • We take a three-stage review of the market, utilizing our software to identify positive areas to open your practice. Once we identify positive areas, we then complete a feasibility review by applying our commercial real estate expertise to look at hidden factors such as land use, vacancy, developments so you can make an informed decision.
  • Scenario 2: You now have an interest in a few areas, but you want information to best support your business decisions.
  • Chose the Location Intelligence Services that work best for you:
  • A Demographic Report will give you quick basic insight about the people living in these areas and whether they are your ideal future clients and includes a practice-to-population ratio.
  • A Trade Area Overview Report is area specific, giving you a general overview into the future planning for these areas. Looking into land use, development and future growth. Essentially giving you a deeper future outlook of an area.
  • A Location Intelligence Report is location specific and gives you insight into the positive and negative attributes of your real estate and trade area. *A demographic report is included.
