New Data: Rents in Charlotte up 2.6% This Month

In March 2020, rent prices in Charlotte fell dramatically in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Since then, renters have enjoyed “pandemic pricing” and double-digit rent drops in some places. But today, nearly a year and a half later, prices have fully rebounded and are back above pre-pandemic projections, according to a new report by Apartment List.
