National Council of Housing Market Analysts
Created in 2001, the National Council of Housing Market Analysts (NCHMA), formerly the National Council of Affordable Housing Market Analysts, is the only professional body dedicated exclusively to the field of residential rental real estate market analysis. NCHMA’s members are comprised of professionals involved in performing and reviewing residential market studies.
The Council presents opportunities for market analysts to discuss current issues, network and gain state-of-the-art information. Since its formation in 2001, NCHMA has developed an extensive body of work including our Model Content Standards for Market Studies for Affordable Rental Housing, Market Study Terminology, Market Study Index, Code of Ethics and Standards of Professional Practice, and a series of white papers on key market study related topics. Vist the NCHMA resources page to learn more about these reports. In addition, through multi-day forums and state HFA sponsored seminars, the Council brings market analysts together to share ideas among themselves – and with state agencies, equity syndicators, developers, local governments and other market study users.To date, the organization has primarily focused on opportunities related to affordable housing rental development.
Expanding Our Mission
As we enter our second decade, we have expanded our mission beyond the realm of affordable rental housing. The rebranded National Council of Housing Market Analysts (NCHMA) will strive to be the premiere organization dedicated to all forms of housing market analysis through the expanded development and promotion of professional standards and best practices, facilitating professional development and continuing education opportunities, and fostering networking and business development. NCHMA will continue to be committed to developing an ethical and unbiased standardized set of market study guidelines across all housing programs that can be used to make the market study process more accountable, transparent, timely and effective.

Participation in councils is a primary benefit of membership in NH&RA.
Our councils keep members abreast of critical industry developments, new business opportunities and are leading advocates for the issues you care about most on Capital Hill and HUD, IRS, CDFI Fund, National Park Service and the State Housing Finance Agencies.
Perhaps most importantly, membership in NH&RA councils provides access to a peer group and network that WILL help you generate new business and create efficiencies in your operations. NH&RA members know that by sharing their insight and know-how we are all able to grow our businesses. Council membership is complimentary for NH&RA members. They meet in person and via conference call through out the year.
