Real Estate and Construction
The Kem C. Gardner Policy Institute provides leading real estate and construction research for the State of Utah. Our research provides decision makers with critical information about residential and non-residential construction trends and issues. In addition to construction research, our work focuses on housing research related to affordability and market stability. Our team works closely with real estate professionals, planners, economists, researchers and business, and community leaders to make informed decisions about the Utah economy.
