Rental Rates Ripe for Investors

Cheryl Warren - Wednesday, July 6, 2016

The rental market is hot for real estate investors now! Rental rates continue to rise and according to the following report from the Mecklenburg Times, Charlotte has the 2nd highest rents in the state. Rates are rising in the entire country. This is the real estate investors’ happy place, however, the market is competitive, as well. If an investor offers an inviting house which means that it presents well – clean, no trash, broken windows, marked up walls, it should be pretty easy to find a good qualified tenant. In addition to rents rising, we also have to remember there are those who are not running to the purchase homes right now. So, the stage is set, the rest is up to you as the investor!!!
