Rental and investment properties on the rise in Charlotte?

September 24, 2013

A new report finds that 1 in 5 homes bought in the Charlotte MSA went to investors. That is the highest rate in the country behind Atlanta. This trend highlights the changing nature of neighborhoods and the growing amount of people who rent. A question arises of how CHARP and other community-university partnerships can still engage with neighborhoods with more transient populations? How can we serve those that rent at the same level as those who own their homes? Interesting and challenging questions for participatory research.
