Market Intelligence: Q2 Carolinas Update
Join RealPage® market experts Carl Whitaker and Arben Skivjani for a lively discussion on a rising-star region in the nation’s apartment market – North and South Carolina.
The Carolinas continue pulling in a lot of newfound investment and development interest, supported by solid demand for multifamily housing. While some of the nation’s smaller, secondary/tertiary markets are slightly softer than the region’s key metros like Charlotte, Greensboro/Winston-Salem and Raleigh/Durham, there’s a lot to like about this pocket of the country in the coming few years.
Construction activity is always a storyline worth monitoring, but thus far, the region has benefited from relatively resilient economic growth and continued inbound migration from northern East Coast metros.
Questions surrounding the level of investment that this area can support remain a key focal point, so be sure to hear crucial insights from these industry experts regarding the longer-term viability of apartment market fundamentals in the Carolinas.
Markets included in this educational update include:
- Greenville (NC)
- Myrtle Beach
