Rents in Charlotte Still on the Rise

Wednesday, March 15, 2017

The Charlotte Observer put out a very well researched article on the current market trends for apartment rental rates. Single family homes are following that same trend and rental rates are going up significantly. I suspect as mortgage interest rates also continue to rise it will take more homebuyers out of the market to buy a house and into the market to rent a house. The demand for rental property will remain on the rise. For several years there have been institutional investors buying up thousands of single-family property and turning them into rentals. It has been challenging for the Mom and Pop investor to compete on price. Five years ago landlords were shooting for 10% cap rates and now they need to be happy with 6%.

Charlotte Rent Prices going up or down?

Thursday, February 02, 2017

Throughout the city we have seen a very consistent appreciation in rental prices of about 3-4% for several years. The secret has been out for years that Charlotte is one of the nation's top investments for real estate rentals and we have continued to see investors gobbling up properties. The rental appreciation is important for the investor because this is a hedge against inflation that you do not find in many other investment opportunities. However, last week an article was published that shows a decline in rental prices in Uptown Condos. This is due to a saturation and built in expectation of impending saturation of more Uptown condos and nearby multi-family apartments.  Read More »
