On Thursday, August 3rd, the Robins Regional Chamber hosted business and community leaders from across the region for the 2023 Robins Regional Housing Outlook in the Cary W. Martin Conference Center in the Roy H. “Sonny” Watson Health Pavilion, Warner Robins. Featured state-level presenters Daniela Perry with the Georgia Chamber Foundation and Domonic Purviance with the Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta provided industry data and expert insight on the factors impacting our state and the local housing market. A panel of local stakeholders joined them for a full-picture discussion on the housing outlook here in Houston County. The panel included:
- Chairman Dan Perdue, Houston County Board of Commissioners
- Ben Hulbert, Morris Bank & Development Authority of Houston County
- Scott Free, Coldwell Banker Free Realty
- Dylan Wingate, WCH Homes
The Outlook series is a unique offering from the Robins Regional Chamber that provides data-rich content and insights from state-level experts on topics such as job creation and economic development, consumer trends, housing market analysis, and more. Each installment in the series is designed to provide businesses with an in-depth look at regional trends so they can make informed decisions about their operations and investments in the Robins Region. The Chamber Outlook series serves as an invaluable tool for local business owners who are looking to gain insight into the region’s business climate and what opportunities may lie ahead in terms of future growth.
In her remarks during the program, Chamber board chair, Sara Murph told the audience, “This topic is important to each of us in this room, especially business owners as we try to attract and retain talent in our community. Also, because this topic is part of the national news cycle. It seems that at least weekly I see a headline regarding the ‘housing crisis.’ Today’s panel discussion will give us an opportunity to present the data as it pertains to our area. In the absence of information, people often jump to conclusions so we want to fill that space by telling the story of the Robins Region…and we think it’s a good one.”
