I am coming from NYC and investing for Cash Flow(CF) here is virtually impossible here at prices I can afford. On the other hand laws are such that even in other towns nearby I am not too keen. I do love the city of Charlotte from the times I have been there and the people but I am wondering what you all think of it as an investment location.

Couple things I would be interested in-

What price point are people finding to work well?

What do vacancy rates look like?

Does anyone know a good realtor or property manager for working with investors?

Which neighborhoods are better than others and which should be avoided like plague dens? Why?

Is there another nearby location that's even better and what makes it so?
