About La Vergne, Tennessee

How's the La Vergne real estate market?

Over the last few decades, builders in the city of La Vergne have generally designed their developments to ensure that often disenfranchised populations have the opportunity to own an affordable home. La Vergne’s Lake Forest Estates, for instance, is the largest subdivision in the entire state of Tennessee, and features homes from the low-to-mid-$200,000s. The overall result of this development approach is a relatively mature housing market that resists upheaval—even amidst an economic renewal. Another consequence of this homeownership focus is a unique landscape for renters. Over 70% of residents own their homes, an impressive ratio even for the most well-off neighborhoods. These homeownership opportunities, however, appear to have come at the expense of rental property development. While apartments, townhomes, and condos, like the Rutherford Pointe Apartments, do exist, they are generally quite dated. In place of these conventional rental options, single-family homes have emerged as the primary option on the La Vergne rental market. While the usual rent of $1,700 or so per month might seem exorbitant, it’s fairly reasonable for that much space in a neighborhood that’s definitely on the rise. Many of the homes in La Vergne are 2,000 - 4,000 square feet and offer modern features such as an open floorplan, hardwood flooring, and granite countertops.

Why are homes in La Vergne a good investment?

Especially in the Lee Road area, near the interstate in La Vergne’s western reaches, home prices have taken off into the upper $300,000s and mid $400,000s and it’s easy to see why. In neighboring Nolensville, homes can sell in the $500,000 range. These sale prices, while not at all unusual for the Nashville metro, aren’t customary in La Vergne, a community that has historically placed a premium on accessible homeownership. Home prices in La Vergne aren’t predicted to decrease anytime soon, even as builders start new construction projects.
