This is my first post and surely will not be my last.
I thank everyone in advance for any help/guidance I may receive. These forum’s seem to be priceless!
I have recently read several books on Real Estate, been interested in RE for a few years now, and have developed a plan to “take action” in the coming year. In only 2.5 years out of college I am extremely disillusioned with my job and realize that it will not allow me to attain my goal of retirement @ age 35. I am excited to begin my RE investing career as I sincerely believe I have a passion for RE (and quite a passion for early retirement as well !)
My question is concerning location. I will be changing jobs in the next few months and have tremendous flexibility as to where I can relocate. One of my options is Charlotte, NC. I have heard a great deal of chatter in the last few years that Charlotte will be “the next Atlanta” (where I currently live); that it is a market ready to explode. Unfortunately, my research was rather inconclusive. I was able to locate the website of Charlotte’s REIA but was unable to uncover any pertinent information.
I would like to know what your opinion is concerning the Charlotte Real Estate market.
Thank you very much!!!
