The Mecklenburg Boom
If anyone has any questions about whether or not the Charlotte-Mecklenburg area is growing, all they have to do is visit Charlotte's Chamber of Commerce. The Chamber reported recently that in 2006 they received plans from new and expanding businesses to invest almost 4.1 billion dollars into the community. In addition the same report also stated that over 800 businesses were planning to create more than 12,000 jobs. Although the plans are just that, according to past experience these projected numbers show a trend in the increase in commercial building, which could mean a boom in both the sale/lease of land as well as residential real estate.
