Charlotte Ranked The #1 City In America Where Millennials Are Moving

Joseph Coupal - Friday, October 12, 2018

Abberly Woods, Charlotte, NCBusiness Insider released a study which names Charlotte as the top city in America where “millennials are flocking to in droves”.

The study compared data from several different sources, including personal-finance company SmartAsset, real-estate-analytics firm RCLCO, and mortgage-software company Ellie Mae. They concluded that Charlotte is now the top city, followed closely by Seattle, WA, and Oakland, CA.

The report notes, “The millennial population of Charlotte, the biggest city in North Carolina, grew by nearly 11,000 in 2015, the latest year for which there is data.” Seattle attracted 10,000 and Oakland attracted 7,500 that same year.

A few months ago Niche.com also ranked the Queen City as a top destination for Millennials, citing our growing number of breweries, coffee shops, restaurants, and high-paying jobs.

Living in a College Town

Joseph Coupal - Wednesday, September 26, 2018

Abberly Woods, Charlotte, NCLiving in a college town might seem like an unusual decision once you're out of school. Sure, living there might make sense while your own children are in school, if you're going back to college to enhance your career or if you're taking a teaching opportunity. But if you aren't connected to the university, staying in a college town or choosing to move to one might seem like a strange choice. It isn't.

Let's be clear as to what a college town is. Here, we're talking about a smaller community in which a large university provides employment for a significant portion of the town's residents, and many other residents are involved with businesses that serve students and alumni. In these towns, the student population makes up a significant part of the population.

College towns offer a number of perks beyond simply having university-level classes down the street.

Here are five benefits that come from living in a college town.

Low cost of living. College towns tend to have a low cost of living. After all, landlords are often renting properties to college students without a lot of money.

Often, the sticker price of rent in such towns is fairly low, but the leases may involve a lot of protection for the landlord against property damage. If you're a mature adult who isn't going to have a big party every weekend, you're likely to avoid all of those extra expenses.

Furthermore, such towns are often full of a wide variety of low-cost services, such as inexpensive restaurants and many secondhand shops, which are usually well-stocked. They typically have good yard sale markets since students often buy items and leave them to be resold when they depart.

Cultural opportunities. College towns often attract cultural events and tours from musicians, stage companies and speakers that would not otherwise come to a town of that size. This gives you the opportunity to live in a relatively small-town environment while still seeing top-notch cultural events.

Sometimes, these performances and concerts are on campus but open to the public, so you may want to watch the schedule of events there. Many college towns, however, have other venues, such as bars and small concert venues, that are often used by traveling performers. There's usually something to see or do all the time, at least in comparison to other towns of similar size.

Low-cost entertainment opportunities. The universities themselves tend to provide an abundance of low-cost or free entertainment opportunities to the community. For starters, politicians, authors, celebrities, artists and other public figures often appear at universities and colleges in speaking and question-and-answer forums that are open to the general public for free.

Beyond that, universities and colleges often have a range of special-interest groups that work to share that interest with the broader community, offering demonstrations and events on campus and in the town itself. Pay attention to the local news, community calendar and college's calendar to find all kinds of low-cost entertainment options.

Easy ways to make money. Many universities have thriving research projects that seek out citizens of the surrounding town for paid opportunities. You might be paid to play a game or eat a strange food and give your thoughts on the experience, for example, as researchers study some aspect of what you're doing. It can often be an easy way to earn a few bucks.

Plus, many college towns have businesses that offer simple ways to earn a few extra dollars. While these businesses might target students, members of the community are typically welcome. You might be able to make extra money from donating plasma, driving for a ride-hailing service or offering up transcription and editing services through sites like Upwork (both professors and some students will use this).

Exceptional medical services. If you choose to live near a university with a good medical school, you'll have access to top-notch medical services at a reasonable price, which can be a great bargain. Medical schools tend to offer a wide variety of medical services to the public, with those services used as learning opportunities for students.

For people in town, this typically means that medical appointments and procedures involve an experienced doctor paired with a student or two. The student learns about the practice of medical care while the doctor tries to provide a good model for the student. Thus, if you don't mind having a student watching and learning from your medical visits, using the local medical school's services can be a great bargain for excellent care.

All in all, there are a lot of perks that come from living in a college town beyond the educational opportunities. Don't overlook those benefits.

Hot Fall Apartment Decor

Joseph Coupal - Wednesday, September 19, 2018

Abberly Woods, Charlotte, NCLabor Day marked the unofficial end of summer. Although we’re sad to see it go, we can’t wait for the aromas of pumpkin pie, the crunch of leaves under our feet and all the beautiful colors of fall. As this new season arrives, there’s no better time to be inspired by the latest seasonal apartment decorating trends. Let’s take a look at some of the most sought-after designs!

New Neutrals: Autumn is known for its bright hues of yellow, orange and red. As noted by HGTV, colors and contrast are giving way to neutrals this season. Going colorless provides the opportunity to really experiment with rich textures and fun shapes. And layering similar neutral tones on top of each other is an easy way to let your creativity flow!

Pumped About Pumpkins: Nothing says fall like pumpkin – whether it’s the mounds of pumpkins outside the stores or the pumpkin spice lattes brewing in our favorite coffee houses. But did you know pumpkins are an easy item to use for decorating? Country Living says that you can incorporate a pumpkin as a centerpiece at your next gathering. Try adding a lace doily to brighten it up or decorate it with fall foliage. The décor possibilities are endless!

Supersize It: Chunky sweaters. Cozy scarves. Big coats. Autumn is known for its oversized fashion items and the trend is also inspiring home and apartment décor. This fall you can expect to see oversized everything! Make your apartment or home feel extra cozy with chunky knit blankets and pillows, large comfy chairs and super-sized wall-art.

It’s how you live that matters and love being able to provide you with simple yet beautiful décor inspirations for your apartment in Charlotte, NC. We hope these ideas will help you make the most of the season and feel more at home.

Buy or Rent: 3 Myths To Consider

Joseph Coupal - Wednesday, September 12, 2018

Abberly Woods, Charlotte, NCIs it time to move? Should I continue renting? Should I be house or condo hunting? If you’re starting to ask yourself these questions, you’re also likely turning to friends and family for advice, too. Before you’re swayed one way or the other, consider these three myths often thrown into the buying or renting debate.

Myth #1: You should buy in a buyer’s market.

Buyers beware. Never purchase a home based solely on the market. Just because the market looks good, does not mean it’s good for you. Your first step should be identifying where you stand financially. Determine how much you can safely afford to spend each month on housing or you may be at risk of living beyond your means.

Myth #2: If you own a home, you’ll benefit from the tax breaks.

This is not always the case. While the interest and tax property portions of your mortgage payment may be tax deductible, home improvements, home insurance and losses on the sale of a home are not and never have been tax deductible.

With the recent tax law changes, when it comes to purchasing a home, interest on only the first $750,000 of your mortgage will be deductible. And keep in mind that many states do allow renters to deduct a portion of their rent from their state taxes.

Myth #3: You’re throwing money down the drain by renting.

While this can certainly be a tempting way to think, it is not necessarily true. By choosing to rent, you are satisfying your need for shelter. You have a roof over your head, but unlike purchasing a house or condo, you’re not responsible for the day-to-day upkeep.

When renting, you also benefit from flexibility. You can change apartments much more quickly than you can sell your home, and the money you may have been putting towards mortgage payments is free to be funneled into other investment opportunities.

To help guide your decision, here are some things to consider (both good and bad) about buying or renting:

Rent:

  • Not paying for your own mortgage
  • Not responsible for major upkeep
  • Subject to landlord rules (i.e. pets, smoking, painting, parking)
  • Flexibility in terms of moving
  • Up-front Costs: Security deposit, First and Last

Buy:

  • Building equity
  • Responsible for all upkeep
  • Your rules go
  • Pets welcome
  • May lose value
  • Up-front Costs: Large down payment, cash to cover closing costs, moving expenses, emergency fund
  • Best to stay put for at least seven years

Choosing whether to purchase a home or continue renting ultimately comes down to your financial standing and personal preference. What may be right for your neighbor may not be right for you. That said, be sure to make an educated decision and don’t be fooled by some of the myths around this ongoing topic!

Plan the Perfect Panthers Tailgate

Joseph Coupal - Thursday, September 06, 2018

Abberly Woods, Charlotte, NC For Carolina Panthers fans who live in our apartments in Charlotte, NC, the arrival of fall doesn’t just mean a break in the humidity, the return of seasonal beers and the chance to bundle up in cozy flannels again; it also means it’s time again to spend your weekends cheering on your team. Planning the perfect tailgate to enjoy it all is essential.

The Food

Football and barbecue are about as American a combination as you can get. Plus, a feast full of pork is fitting since you’ll be watching the pigskin get tossed around. Start with a spread from Midwood Smokehouse. In the South, no tailgate is complete without fried chicken, so you’ll want to consult Charlotte’s legendary go-to: Bojangles’ Famous Chicken ‘n Biscuits for the Jumbo Tailgate package. And don’t forget the universal language of football: chicken wings. Whisky River is famous for its signature wings. Looking to man the grill yourself? Pick up savory steaks and gourmet meats ready for firing at Meat & Fish Co. Of course, we’d be remiss to skip dessert. Pile a plate high with Amelie’s French Bakery’s adorable Panthers-themed macarons and load a tiered platter with blue and black paw print cupcakes from Publix.

The Drinks

The ultimate tailgate requires an expert rotation of chilled beverages on hand. For spirit-free and kid-friendly beverages that hit the spot, opt for Bojangles’ sweet tea, which already comes with your Jumbo Tailgate meal, or Midwood Smokehouse’s lemonade. For something a little stronger, swing by NoDa Brewing Company and grab a pack of Jam Session to go. NoDa has also partnered with The Roaring Riot Panthers Fan Club to create a new rye pale ale named after the group. Members of Brewpublik, the Charlotte beer-delivery startup, can even have cold ones personally delivered to their tailgates if arranged at least a day in advance and for a group of 15 or more. On a budget? Don’t forget about Bud Light’s special Panthers cans, which come emblazoned with the famous feline we all know and love.

The Games

You’ll also want to have your lawn games ready for action. Plus, once you’re done chowing down it’s probably not a bad call to get up and move a little. What better way to burn off some calories than challenging your fellow fans to a game of cornhole? For the avid fan, a true gameday game session should include Panthers-themed boards and bean bags to keep your team spirit firing on all cylinders. For more ways to get your group up and moving and keep the adrenaline pumping, pick up a ladderball toss game set or a washer toss kit and let the fun—quite literally—fly.

Tailgating has become increasingly popular throughout the country and especially so in the Southeast during football season.

To make sure you get the perfect spot, city parking websites, like preferredparking.com, e-zparking.net and parkcharlotte.com, allow you to reserve parking or tailgating spots.

In NC Millennials are Moving to Charlotte

Joseph Coupal - Wednesday, August 22, 2018

Abberly Woods, Charlotte, NCCharlotte and Raleigh have both been included in a list of the top 25 cities where millennials — individuals currently aged 25-to 34-years-old — are moving, both ranking higher than New York City and Washington, D.C.

The data TIME collected shows that Charlotte — ranked 18th — experienced a 4% increase between 2010 and 2015 in the population of millennials, coming out to an increase of 1,372 individuals.

The majority of urban areas in the study experienced some level of increase during this time period, but some urban areas did experience some level of a decrease.

All the cities that experienced a decrease were relatively near an urban area that was experiencing a growth during the period, typically within in the same state or in a bordering state.

A Report which annually surveys May graduates collects data from March of students' spring semester to the December after their graduation.

The most recent available survey data was on UNC's Class of 2016. Out of that class, 83 percent of the entering first-years were in-state students. After graduation, 58 percent of the class stayed in North Carolina. The next three regions were the Northeast at 8 percent, the Mid-Atlantic at 8 percent and the Southeast at 7 percent.

There are strong economies in both regions, and the cost of living is less than in northern cities for millennials.

The presence of the Research Triangle Park in and around Raleigh and the continuous growth in Charlotte represent appealing factors for millennials. The future for students holds many opportunities.

They are graduating in an area that is abundant with jobs, and if they wanted to stay in the area that they graduated in, they certainly could. The biggest takeaway is the healthy job market.

North Carolina: Where Millennials Are Moving

Joseph Coupal - Tuesday, August 14, 2018

Abberly Woods, Charlotte, NCAccording to Pew Research Center estimates there are around 71 million millennials in America and they are expected to surpass the number of baby boomers in 2019. That makes millennials a coveted generation for cities looking to bolster their workforce and tax base. But millennials are notorious for their quixotic preferences and figuring out where they will head to next can be difficult. It’s a worthwhile undertaking though: where millennials decide to move has enormous impact on local markets, from the cost of a mortgage to whether or not you will be able to find a good avocado toast in your neighborhood.

SmartAsset used Census Bureau data to find out where are millennials moving. To track millennials’ mobility, we looked at immigration and emigration data from the U.S. Census Bureau for 217 cities. Check out our data and methodology below to see where we got our data and how we put it together to create our final rankings.

Key Finding

Big Apple no more – New York took the bottom spot on this list again. In particular residents seem to be leaving the city to venture into other states. In total around 69,200 residents moved to New York from out of state while nearly 95,000 left the Big Apple for another state.

The States Where Millennials Are Moving

7. North Carolina

The South makes up the rest of the states in our top 10. The no. 2 ranking state is Texas, with a net influx of nearly 34,000 millennials, followed by Virginia which gained 18,300 more millennials than it lost. Georgia, North Carolina and Florida round out the top 10. Georgia saw its population of millennials increase by 17,600, North Carolina saw a net influx of just under 10,000 millennials, while Florida received just under 7,200.

Charlotte Ranked Among Best Cities In America For Young Professionals

Joseph Coupal - Wednesday, August 08, 2018

Abberly Woods, Charlotte, NCThe Queen City is now ranked as one of the top cities in America where contented young professionals live, according to online career site Careerbliss.com.

The site analyzed thousands of employee generated reviews from hundreds of American cities to compile the list.

A ‘young professional’ was defined by CareerBliss to mean an employee with less than 10 years’ experience in a full-time position. They were asked to rate eight factors that are thought to happiness the most, including; growth opportunities, compensation, benefits, work-life balance, career advancement, senior management, job security, and whether or not they would recommend their job to others.

They valued each factor on a five-point scale and also indicated how important it was to their overall happiness at work. The numbers were combined to find an average rating of overall employee happiness for each respondent and then sorted by location to find which cities had the happiest workers.

Charlotte came in 4th place. The Queen City generated a total score of 3.63 (only two tenths lower than first place Redmond, WA’s score of 3.83).
