Up Close and Local: Charlotte Market Update
Charlotte has been one of the country’s key apartment construction centers over the past decade or so, and demand has kept pace with that building activity much of the time. Despite a few challenges stemming from COVID-19 in early 2020, the metro ended the year in relatively good shape. Rent change remained positive, and occupancy stayed above the long-term norm. However, development is picking up even more right now, with deliveries set to reach an all-time high by the end of the year. Will demand be able to meet the new supply levels, or will performance metrics stall?
