At Parker Associates, we have always emphasized the WHO in our approach to positioning and marketing new residential home products and communities. In addition to gathering and analyzing traditional demographic details as we examine the development potential at a particular site, we have been refining our outlook on consumer psychographics for more than 30 years. Our method, based on American psychologist Abraham Maslow’s hierarchy of needs has optimized the sales operations of hundreds of builders and developers throughout United States and abroad.
Maslow classified human development in terms of four stages related to advances in living standards from “survival” at the bottom, to “self-actualization” at the top of his hierarchy. The key to successfully identifying and attracting appropriate consumer groups to your door is knowing where/why they are located among the various stages and most importantly, what products, imagery, and advertising are going to both attract and ultimately convert them from prospects to buyers.
As Millennials continue to emerge as significant purchasers of residential products across all price points, distinguishing this consumer group’s preferences and motivations from other buyers, is more important than ever. Parker Associates is your ‘one-stop’ shop when it comes to gaining insight into current market and consumer characteristics. Call or e-mail us to learn how we can help.
