Hi there, it looks like your questions went unnoticed here but in case you have found more information here is my advice. The rental market for townhomes in uptown is just as stable as renting apartments or condos in uptown Charlotte. Currently there is an influx of developers building near and around uptown Charlotte to supply the demand of large amounts of renters moving into the uptown area. Due to this I see it getting better over the next 5 years. The Bryant Park area is a neighborhood that is being revitalized therefore the shadiness is inevitable but its more on the upswing than a downswing. The future market may be able to give you more than $160 per month but that could take a few years. I usually advise my investor clients to look for net cash flow closer to $300 per month. I have never done business with Ryan Homes but I have also heard of their not so good reputation. There are plenty of other good builders in the Charlotte area that will offer good quality. There is a custom builder currently building in another revitalized area close to uptown with great quality and better prices than Bryant Park. I havent run the numbers yet for the Net Cash Flow but Im sure it could get you over $300 per month. If you have more questions or need any other advice please feel free to contact me at anytime email@example.com.
