Housing economy expert John Hunt of MarketNsight and ViaSearch is excited to announce MarketWatch Atlanta on Friday, June 9. Join John Hunt and Dr. Rajeev Dhawan of Georgia State’s Economic Forecasting Center in their discussion of current trends and full forecasts for Atlanta’s overall economy, and new construction.

As home builders scramble to meet the generational demands of millennials and boomers with exploding costs and every market in a state of moderation, Hunt believes it may be time to innovate again.

“With few exceptions, we build the same house today that we built 20 years ago,” said Hunt. “But we forget that those homes were cutting edge departure from the brick ranches of the 60s and 70s.”

The focal point of MarketWatch Atlanta will be the need to adapt to the constantly changing real estate market. Dr. Dhawan will address the overall financial system in Atlanta while Hunt will address real estate trends, the housing industry’s economy and construction. According to Hunt, when Millennials arrive to buy homes, their needs will create a “new normal” in the real estate industry.

Cobb Galleria Centre is located at Two Galleria Parkway in Atlanta. MarketWatch Atlanta is a free event, but attendees must register in advance. Register at or RSVP to or 770-419-9891.
