Renters: Wait…where’s the washing machine?
CHARLOTTE – Renters are having a tough time finding apartment units with washing machines and dryers, according to a new report by Apartment List.
The online apartment marketplace analyzed the availability of amenities in some of the country’s largest metros, finding Charlotte renters have a lower chance of getting amenities they want and greater odds of getting amenities they don’t want.
For example, 55 percent of renters want in-unit laundry, but just 18 percent of properties have it, said housing economist Chris Salviati.
