Up Close and Local: Charlotte
The Charlotte apartment market has been one of the fastest-growing in the nation over the past ten years, with demand keeping pace over much of that time. However, demand was showing signs of slowing as the metro entered 2020, and near-term expectations show further declines as a result of COVID-19. A large portion of lease-up properties coming online cause for some additional concern, leaving many wondering how Charlotte stacks up against other markets throughout the Southeast.
Join RealPage analysts Greg Willett and Adam Couch for an examination of how metro Charlotte’s apartment market is faring in the age of COVID-19.
Discussion topics include:
- The local economy
- Property transaction volumes and pricing
- Neighborhood-level standout performers and comparative laggards
