About Goodlettsville, Tennessee

How's the Goodlettsville real estate market?

Decades of established economic infrastructure have fostered the development of a mature, varied housing market that meets just about everyone’s domestic needs. Sure, there’s the occasional multi-million dollar mansion (this is Nashville after all), but the majority of homes are accessible, single-family dwellings constructed between 1970 and 1999. While these may not seem like the most seductive properties, they’re modest, serviceable, and keep home prices from ballooning even as the area draws more residents.

Part of Goodlettsville’s home price appreciation can be attributed to burgeoning new construction offering similar square footage with updated touches. Especially on the Nashville side of town, communities like Parkview Preserve provide affordable new construction ranging from townhomes to detached single-family properties. Budding communities like Copper Creek and Cottage Grove offer the kind of updated homes on smaller, easy-to-maintain lots that current buyers covet. These housing options aren’t cheap, with four-bedroom homes in this area often running from $400k-$500k, but prices should stay relatively stable as builders add quality inventory to the market. Since Goodlettsville functions as more than just a commuter town, it also provides far more housing options than the conventional suburb. Over 40% of the population are renters, and the area offers plenty of apartments and even a few houses to meet their needs. Complexes like Piccadilly Apartments and Centennial Crossing offer one-to-three bedroom units, some for less than $1000—an uncommon deal for something this close to Nashville. These homes also tend to be centrally located around Goodlettsville’s underrated restaurant and park scene. To get an accurate home valuation estimate, use our Goodlettsville home value calculator.
