About Franklin, Tennessee

How's the Franklin real estate market?

Over two-thirds of residents own their homes, and most have made a substantial financial commitment to secure their future in one of Tennessee’s most coveted communities. Houses in Franklin sell for a little over $200 per sqft—significantly more than the conventional suburban Nashville single family home—which has led to an average sale price of almost $600,000 over the past year. Thanks to this homeownership threshold, it’s not a hyper-competitive market compared to the rest of Nashville. Houses often spend a couple of months on the market, but the offers they garner seldom come in below the list price. Buyers simply understand the value of belonging to this community. If you’re looking to enjoy this uncommon lifestyle without making the uncommonly large down payment, new complexes like Harpeth River Oaks offer apartment options for around $1,500 per month. Either way, you choose to experience Franklin, though, few regret the time they spend here. To get an accurate home valuation estimate, use our Franklin home value calculator.

Franklin's convenient location, just a 25-minute drive from downtown Nashville is a huge appeal. Residents of the historic downtown Franklin neighborhoods, like the homes along West Main Street, can live well while hardly ever sitting behind the wheel of a car. Another tasteful touch somewhat uncommon to southern cities is Franklin’s commitment to accessible parks. Pinkerton Park and The Park at Harlinsdale Farm are both centrally-located greenspaces nestled along the meandering Harpeth River. Features like these, when coupled with the city’s top-notch Williamson County schools, make Franklin a magnet for families.
