What is Mount Juliet known for?

Located in Wilson County, the “city between the lakes” is arguably the newest darling of the Nashville commuter scene and is a quickly growing community.

Ultimately, it’s a residential gem new enough to have developed with modern families in mind. This often means homes in Mount Juliet enjoy modern living spaces and a desirable open floorplan design.

Perhaps a dozen new construction developments are currently building, with prices ranging from the low $300,000s to the low $500,000s. Despite this influx of housing supply, though, home values show no sign of leveling off. In fact, the 22% growth rate in average home sale price over the past year is one of the highest in Middle Tennessee. The only potential drawback is that there’s a clear focus on single-family living, so other dwellings such as apartments or townhomes have little traction in the Mount Juliet market. Single-family homes that are generally between 2,000 - 4,000 square feet make up a striking 76.6% of all residences, and alternatives like the townhomes at Vintage Station North are only just getting built. However, most people don’t move to Mount Juliet for the townhomes. They’re looking for a place that supports their family and work life, and few do it better than Mount Juliet.
