Prospectus.com’s research and writing team is recognized as a world leader in feasibility study preparation. Consisting of lifelong entrepreneurs, lawyers, consultants and business plan writers, our team is dedicated to the success of our clients’ goal. We have assisted hundreds of companies in writing their feasibility studies and preparing vital reports for a business’s initial launch. From real estate to hi tech to economic development to refineries of all kinds, there is not an aspect of the feasibility study process that our staff is not intimately knowledgeable about.
A feasibility study is conducted prior to a project’s undertaking such as a real estate development project. Principals of companies and their investors want to ensure that any given project they plan on developing is actually “feasible”, and preparing a study showing this feasibility is the main point of writing such a report (which of course will help save needed capital and time in the long run). A feasibility study includes such vital information and data as the funding needs to complete the project, the market opportunity, government regulations, risk factors, strength and weaknesses, the management team and the financials of the company. While a feasibility study somewhat sounds like a business plan, such reports tend to be many times longer with more details on the market and financials.
Prospectus.com’s team is respected for its keen insights into any given market, and our straight forward assessment regarding a projects viability. We work one-on-one with our clients to ensure that each project is specifically tailored to the company’s needs.
Real Estate Feasibility Studies
While a good portion of our feasibility work revolves around product development and launch, we are often tasked with real estate feasibility work that is both broad and specific. Due to the volume of studies we undertake, our team at Prospectus is a recognized firm in the real estate facility report space. We assist companies from single family homes, to large developments, spanning not just the US and Canada, but many countries as well. Here are some features we undertake in the real estate feasibility analysis.
- Site Analysis and Land Survey
- In order to determine if the property you are wanting to develop is suitable for your business, we will conduct a land survey and site analysis to determine some the following features:
- Accessibility – how accessible is the location of the project for patrons or buyers
- Zoning – can the land be zoned for your project’s needs
- Traffic and Transportation – is there adequate roads, what is the traffic conditions in the general vicinity
- Demographics – what is the median income of the area, labor force
- Economic Impact – what, if any, will your project contribute to the general economy of the area
- Supply and Demand – is there a demand for your services, and if so is there over supply
- Tax Implication – what are the tax issues of the land
Once this feasibility information is gathered and analyzed, we can determine if the proposed location for development is suitable. If the property and area do not look promising, we can then look elsewhere for a parcel of land that will meet the needs of development and the business plan.

Various Types of Feasibility Study Reports
Prospectus.com’s team can assist with any of the noted feasibility studies below as well. Each separate study has its own features but there are more similarities among them than there are differences.
4 Main Feasibility Studies
- Real Estate Feasibility for Real Estate – This is the most common feasibility study that we at Prospectus.com write. As you can see from the already noted information, a real estate report can encompass many different aspects depending on the type of study needed. Real estate feasibility reports include such features as the land survey, building permits, zoning laws, impact on the surrounding environment and natural habits, traffic issues and general impact on businesses in the area as well as the overall market opportunity. Housing developments such as condos, single family homes and apartments, or larger projects such as hotels or buildings or sky scrapers often create real estate feasibility studies before land acquisition and development.
- Comprehensive Feasibility– A comprehensive feasibility study is an all-inclusive report that takes into consideration some of the most rational business practices one should implement before undertaking any project. The comprehensive feasibility includes data on land acquisitions and real estate issues, economic and cultural impact on the greater surrounding areas, and more. Such comprehensive studies can be found in our business plan features (if a client wants a very long and detailed analysis). The comprehensive feasibility study is also referenced in the real estate feasibility study (see above) and together with the real estate report is the most popular feasibility study we offer.
- Financial Economic Feasibility– An economic feasibility study is conducted when a company wants to know if the proposed amount of capital and financing is sufficient to complete a project successfully. While a business plan may have a section called the “CBA” or cost-benefit-analysis, in an economic feasibility study it will be greater in detail and have more statistics and numbers in the financials.
- Marketing Feasibility– The marketing feasibility studies the market impact and penetration, such as the demographics, target market, product testing and more. Prior to launching a project into the market, whether in a local, regional, national or global environment, a viable study on the market is imperative.
Additional Feasibility Studies
Our firm has also written and assisted with the following additional (not as popular) feasibility reports, including:
Technical Feasibility– If a company has the technological know how and resources to achieve its goals.
- Schedule Feasibility-Is there enough time and resources to complete the project on time?
- Cultural Feasibility-Local and greater cultural and societal impact.
- Legal and Ethical Feasibility– Are there ethical and legal implications of a project and if so what are they?
- Resource Feasibility-What resources are needed and is that enough to complete the project successfully?
- Operational Feasibility– can your firm solve difficulties and maximize potential opportunities during the development.
