Relaxed lifestyles, a growing job market, plenty of things to do entertainment wise, a lively sports scene, and acceptable traffic – these are just a few of the Triad’s bragging rights as a great place to call home. And it surely is not short of top-notch apartments either.
Fueled by rising demographics, the Triad’s apartment market has been growing by leaps and bounds in recent times, with developers bringing more quality housing to the region’s rental inventory. Whereas in 2014 around 700 new units in 50+ unit buildings entered the market, in 2015 the number more than tripled. The Triad’s large scale development sector was responsible for delivering as many as 2,465 new rental units last year, with the biggest apartment community going up in Winston-Salem, according to data from Yardi Matrix.
The 360-unit Stafford Place is just one of the swanky new apartment communities that use above-the-norm amenities to appeal to the Triad’s renters who value flexibility and comfort in their housing choices.
