Rents in Charlotte Still on the Rise

Matthew Tringali - Tuesday, March 14, 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%. But, with rental rates continuing on this trend, I think rental property is still an excellent buy for the small local landlord.
