Learn about Murfreesboro

What is Murfreesboro known for?

Even Belle Meade might be a little jealous of Murfreesboro’s consistent ranking as one of the top places to live in the United States. Murfreesboro may be convenient—just 45 minutes southwest of Downtown Nashville—and affordable, but don’t mistake it for just another big-city bedroom community. Especially over the last two decades, people have discovered this quiet, college town, to the point that it’s not just Nashville’s largest suburb, but the sixth-largest city in the state of Tennessee with a population of 162,651. If you’re concerned that all this new growth is threatening Mufressboro’s distinctive charm, then there’s no need to worry. The city is 39 square miles but Murfreesboro’s downtown square is as pleasant as ever, and historical features like Stones River Battlefield and Oaklands Mansion continue to keep Murfreesboro a timeless residential haven.

Who is Murfreesboro a good fit for?

Because of its affordable cost of living, Murfreesboro is an excellent option for lower-income families and young professionals. Potential residents should expect a more simple, often rustic vibe in many sections of this area. However, Murfreesboro is seeing rapid growth and more upscale communities are quickly popping up every day as its popularity and resident satisfaction increases. In fact, Money Magazine named Murfreesboro #19 on its Best Places to Live in 2018.

The result of this popularity is a competitive housing market full of high-quality new construction. Many of these contemporary homes feature a desirable open floor plan Murfreesboro is tailored to families searching for that small-town feel right off the beltway. Over half of its dwellings are standalone single-family homes of two to four bedrooms, usually selling for $150,000-$395,000. Lately, condos and townhome communities like Ashton at Salem Creek and Lennar at Blackman Station have started to provide alternative family housing options in the same price range. Despite the expanding housing options, however, competition for these residences can be hot. Fortunately for those not looking to make that commitment, apartments makeup over a quarter of all Murfreesboro residences, and usually rent for a very reasonable $700-$1,100 per month. Some of these cater to students, and cluster around the Middle Tennessee State University campus. Others, like the newly-built Vantage at Murfreesboro, provide deluxe apartments close to the interstates for ultimate accessibility.

Share your opinion about Murfreesboro with former, current and prospective residents.

“I feel like my friends that live in Murfreesboro absolutely love it, but it is just too far to me.”

I feel like my friends that live in Murfreesboro absolutely love it, but it is just too far to me. It seems like you can get much more for your money, but I don’t know if that matters if you are always in your car. The interstate that connects Nashville and Murfreesboro (I24) is always shut down due to accidents. Probably because people drive breakneck speeds to get to Nashville because they are in denial about how far away they are from the city. But if I just stayed in Murfreesboro, it would be an awesome place to live. I think it has everything you need to raise a family. So if your job is at home or in Murfreesboro, it’s a great option.
