In south Charlotte and ready to learn!

Posted May 17 2022, 15:46

Hi BP Team - On the advice of a realtor/neighbor/friend :) I have started to listening to several of the BP podcasts. (Shout out to Real Estate Rookie)! My husband and I have been playing with the idea of investing/house hacking so I finally signed up here, and am ready to learn. Talk soon - Brittany

Charlotte, North Carolina

Hi @Brittany Scantland-Lall, welcome to the BP community! I actually just moved from Charlotte. I do miss the Queen City!

Just know that Charlotte is not the most inducive environment for house-hacking. There is not an abundance of multi-family properties in and around the city.

Hopefully, your realtor can help you find one but they are pretty competitive.

Good luck! Let me know if I can be of any assistance.
