John Hunt, graduate of Samford University with a BA in Finance/Economics, is the principal of MarketNsight and president of ViaSearch. Since 1995, John has been analyzing the real estate market across the nation. He worked with the team that predicted the housing downturn as early as September 2005, when letters went out to clients stating that a "Housing Downturn is Imminent!"
John is a regular speaker at the Georgia State Economic Forecasting Center’s quarterly conference. When the NAHB projected 977,000 single-family starts nationally and 30,000 for Atlanta in 2016, John went against conventional thinking at the February quarterly conference and accurately predicted 780,000 and 23,000 starts respectively.
