Build to Rent in the Carolinas

Build-To-Rent Home Construction in Charlotte and Raleigh, NC for Developers & Investors

Developing a successful Build-To-Rent community requires an expert team; from managing the budget, to finishing property construction on time and supporting the sales and leasing teams. It’s even more challenging when residential contractors are difficult to work with. Our solid reputation in the community means Charlotte and Raleigh-area Build-to-Rent developers trust Copper Builders with their Build-To-Rent projects.

Developing a Build-To-Rent Community in Charlotte and Raleigh should be easy…

On Budget

Today’s inflationary environment makes staying on budget more important than ever. Our long-standing relationships with vendors give us leverage to keep prices constant and projects on budget.

On Time

Deadlines are critical to a successful return on investment and strong banking relationships. We understand how important it is to finish a development project on time - we do it every day.

Fair Dealing

We’ve built our business and our reputation on fair, transparent pricing and a fixed management fee. We welcome participation in Joint Ventures, converting our fees to equity in the finished project.


Handing off your project to a builder requires trust and confidence. At Copper Builders, we’re known for following through on our promises - our team won't let you down.

I've worked with Copper Builders for well over half a decade and during that time I always think of them first when I have a new project. Without fail, they exceed my expectations and standards, and frankly I just like working with them.
