Veros is committed to the data science of predicting home value based on rigorous analysis of the fundamentals and interrelationships of numerous economic, housing, and geographic variables pertaining to home values.

Adding to this supply squeeze is the high cost of construction, which places a substantial damper on the prospect of new housing stock entering the market.”
