Jackson EMC returned as a sponsor of MarketWatch Atlanta, a biannual event that shares data on the state of the Atlanta new home industry. As one of the largest electric cooperatives in Georgia and the nation, Jackson EMC values the information provided at the event, which is hosted by MarketNsight.
John Hunt, principal with Atlanta-based market research firm MarketNsight, and Dr. Rajeev Dhawan, professor and director of the Georgia State University Economic Forecasting Center, presented the MarketWatch Atlanta event. The two shared a housing economy update as well as predictions for the remainder of the year to more than 400 home builders, developers, bankers, Realtors and other industry representatives.
According to Hunt, Atlanta new home sales are up 12%, looking at sales from May 2018 to May 2019.
“In fact, in the first half of May 2019, Atlanta homebuilders had already sold as many new homes as they did in all of last May,” Hunt said.
