Abstract:
In Durham, Guy Solie is buying houses and rental properties, fixing them up and renting them out to young professionals and Duke graduate students.

Gentrification has a negative effect on traditional residents and middle and working class individuals as they are priced out of the market.

Abstract:
As part of the “Landlord Hall of Shame” series published in the last two issues of the magazine, Raleigh’s most famous landlords are profiled. US Senator Jesse Helms and wife Dorothy own 22 rental properties in Raleigh. 19 are rented in white neighborhoods and are in good condition. 3 are in poor, black neighborhoods and all three have been cited for public nuisances and housing-code violations. Helms has said that private enterprise should drive the housing market, not the government and has voted against bills to fund or create public housing projects. A double-standard seems to be employed by Senator Helms.

Abstract:
The historic Jack Tar Motel in Durham will be renovated to a boutique motel after years of decay have affected the property. What will happen to residents who have lived illegally at the Durham landmark for the last ten years is uncertain. Ronnie Sturdivant, the property’s former owner, ran a flophouse out of the hotel’s rooms, but neglected fixing many of the problems. The hotel will be the site of future businesses, a sports bar, a lounge, and 74 rooms for rent, but will not include its current tenants.
