I have seen rental prices going up in some areas. I'm not sure if there are lot of people who are afraid to increase prices or if they're just happy where they are, but there are lots of people who aren't increasing. We are going up on certain properties as leases come up for renewal.

Like anywhere else in the country, how the job market will be for you here depends on a number of factors, including but not limited to: your field, your experience, etc.

I know several folks who have been laid off in the four years since we have been here. For a couple, it took 6-9 months to find a new position; others found a new job in less than a month.

As for "the pay" - same as above - it depends what kind of work you do and where you are in your career. I know a fair number of folks in Charlotte who make a decent, 6-figure base salary - mainly management and higher positions in the corporate sector. On the other hand, we know plenty of waiters and those in the service sector who make much less.

The job market is not homogenous so it is difficult to make a blanket statement about employment in the area.

I just like the lake norman area and could see myself boating and being able to go offroad in the national forest. I'm from NJ and that doesn't exist there. So I dont want to go back to NJ plus the NJ living cost are sky high

There is probably an endless demand for this job since I'm pretty sure this means you work in the jail. It has to be one of the most demoralizing jobs in the city.
