I see a lot of questions from new investors about where to start investing, so this post will be dedicated to Charlotte North Carolina
Let's start with some numbers worth explaining to the ear…
The average price of a home in Charlotte stands at 369k with a 15% increase in the last year
Price per Sq will stand at $ 177 with a 19% increase from last year
Charlotte has grown at a dizzying pace and ranks very high among the most coveted cities to live in in the United States, and I say not to invest in Charlotte at all! But in its suburbs
It reminds me a bit of Tel Aviv and Zichron Yaacov (20 years ago) always felt that everyone works in Tel Aviv but live in Zichron because the quality of life was higher, the price of real estate did not tear the pocket and there is a train.
So with us, you will get a significantly greater return on your investment in the suburbs especially if the plan is to own the property.
North Carolina is building the first Carolina casino in a tiny town called Shelby￼ (hmmm..mmm)
We are witnessing more and more small towns around that started with massive construction and have huge potential.
If you found an opportunity to flip in Charlotte Bless you, we have here in this great group an investor who did a flip in Charlotte with me and I believe she was amazed along with me by the buying power.
I want to thank my father for the amazing opportunity to introduce myself and share with you the process I am still going through and doing in order to achieve goals, move forward and devour the world.
But in a personal tone… Take the time to learn and get as much information and tips as possible, you will find a mentor, a real estate man in the field who will come to the properties will evaluate them for you and advise you that you can make the best decisions for you.
I will not forget how right at the beginning I joined the company, that the bureaucrat in charge of the office did not know what to do and how to leverage my motivation, every idea I put before her she canceled at 60, I came out teary after every conversation with her and really after one of my meetings with my husband. And I already told him that real estate is probably not for me, when I noticed that the car in front of us had a huge sticker on the back window
Trust the process !!
Today I'm with Keller Williams, and there's not a day that I do not learn something new, it will sound kitschy but even on the hard days I admit (ones where a pipe explodes a few hours before closing) it is quite clear to me that it is part of the profession.
I am always here for any question or any advice, and if you come to Charlotte you are missing that you do not make contact The house is always open and we will be happy to meet you 🙏
Do not forget… if you can dream it you can do it￼!
PS: Keep our fingers crossed there is a situation where it will snow in Charlotte on Sunday, a phenomenon that is definitely rare and unconventional, I went to buy boots for kiddos 😍
