For 37 years, Brad Hunter has been tracking local market economies and has performed or directed many hundreds of site-specific market studies in dozens of markets around the country. He researched hundreds of residential opportunities, for most of the large homebuilding companies in the country, as well as dozens of banks, private equity funds, and opportunity funds.
He has demonstrated his vision, having told clients in February of 2004 that "within three years or less, we will see projects starting to fail," and at the bottom of the cycle, he guided firms (between 2009 and 2011) to buy residential land aggressively. Both of those advance calls allowed his clients to make money and avoid losses. He continues to watch for turning points and yet-unexploited opportunities, focusing heavily on built-for-rent single-family development (BFR).
