Gallatin, TN Homes for Sale

If Old Hickory Lake was the Wild West, then Gallatin, the county seat of Sumner County, would be its boomtown. It might be a few miles further down the road than the neighboring suburbs like Hendersonville, but that doesn’t seem to be much of an issue for home buyers. Once you’ve dabbled in Gallatin’s system of lakefront parks and trails, you’ll realize that this sense of inclusivity is more than just a trait of the housing market, it’s a foundational part of the town itself.

About Gallatin, Tennessee

How's the Gallatin real estate market?

The housing market has frantically tried to keep up with the surge of new residents, resulting in a community dotted with move-in-ready new construction. Over a dozen new developments, mostly clustered on the Nashville side of town along the Highway 31E and Highway 386 corridors, are turning out hundreds of dwellings to meet the diverse needs of their increasing population. Single-family homes, townhomes, and apartments—all are readily available to buy; and even more, like the elegant townhomes at Newman Crossing, are coming soon. Despite the motivated buyers, this high inventory is helping to keep housing competition and prices somewhat affordable. Sure, some of the more upscale developments can run into the $500,000s, but 3-bedroom new construction homes in the same area are often found in the mid $200,000s. This housing diversity even extends to the rental market. 4 in 10 Gallatin residents are renters—a fairly high percentage for Nashville suburbs—and contemporary complexes, like The Edison, offer affordable living in the same neighborhoods as the single-family developments.

Why are homes in Gallatin a good investment?

Since 2010, Gallatin’s population has exploded by almost 50%. Much of this can be attributed to the area’s recent business development. Gap’s Gallatin warehouse has added hundreds of jobs in the last few years, and Barretta, the revered Italian gunmaker, relocated its U.S. production facility to the town in 2015. When you combine desirable jobs with a low cost of living and proximity to the water, you get a town on the rise. New construction homes in Gallatin feature luxurious design elements such as an open floorplan, granite countertops, hardwood floors, walk-in closets, and stainless appliances. What’s more, new developments often include prized amenities such as a community pool, clubhouse, and walking trails.

What are things to do in Gallatin?

Lock Four Mountain Bike Trail is another local favorite on the lake that offers mountain bike enthusiasts a place to ride with lake views. A bit further inland, the Gallatin Miracle Park has a public soccer field, softball field, disc-golf course, and a dog park for our four-legged friends. The Sumner County Museum located off Main Street promises to offer visitors a sense of what life was like in Sumner County dating back to the Civil War. Downtown Gallatin has a lot to offer from the many local shops and eateries on Main Street to the Gallatin Public Library. Just south of Main Street, Rose Mont is a historic landmark built by Judge Josephus Conn Guild in the 1840s.
