If you’re on the hunt for your next apartment for rent in Charlotte, or anywhere else for that matter, there’s a lot you can do to make sure you end up signing a great deal, but unfortunately there’s also a lot that you can’t… There are certain things you have no way to find out about a community unless you’ve actually lived there for a while. And these are often the most annoying things, like lousy property management or the occasional conflicts around the guest parking spaces.
Luckily, we live in the 21st century, which means learning from the experiences of previous tenants and finding out how other renters like the apartment community you set your eyes on has never been easier. This is exactly what reviews and ratings are for, so we at RentCafe took to Yelp and Facebook in order to give you a shortlist with some of the best-rated apartments in Charlotte, and make your choice easier.
