Lebanon, TN Homes for Sale

Lebanon is the county seat of Wilson County. For a sleepy southern town thirty miles east of Nashville, Lebanon carries some surprising clout. Thanks to its status as the home and headquarters of Cracker Barrell, the 36,000-person town has long enjoyed an outsized business presence. Recent years have only strengthened that reputation, as Lebanon is now home to a branch of PFG and America’s only plant for Wonderful Group, a Chinese tile manufacturer. These developments have helped forge Lebanon into an economic entity not beholden to Nashville, and its housing market reflects that independent value. For those willing to do a little digging, there’s an ideal home for everyone in this secluded suburb punching way above its economic weight class.

About Lebanon, Tennessee

How's the Lebanon real estate market?

Despite being a considerable distance from Downtown Nashville, Lebanon’s home prices average in the low $300,000s at about $155 per square foot. This relatively high average value is partially due to the Laguardo area, where million-dollar homes along Old Hickory Lake aren’t necessarily representative of the rest of the residential market. Lebanon’s status as something of an economic hub also lends it a diverse population that enjoys a more varied housing market than many other Nashville suburbs. Forty percent of residents rent their homes, and Lebanon is not short on options to meet their needs. There are multiple well-situated large apartment complexes, like Hamilton Station, that have rental options for under $1,000/month. Unlike most other suburbs, though, the possibilities don’t stop there. Townhome complexes and smaller apartment buildings are widely available, and the market even boasts a fair amount of single-family homes that rent reasonably at under $2,000/month.

Why are homes in Lebanon a good investment?

Closer to town, new construction has flowed in to meet the elevated employment needs of the expanding corporations. Since 2015, Lebanon has seen a considerable spike in population growth, and builders have responded with a menu of modern single-family construction, affordably-priced in the $200s-$300s. Many of these new construction homes enjoy affordable luxury options such as an open floorplan, granite countertops, stainless appliances, walk-in closets, and hardwood floors.

What are things to do in Lebanon?

Just because Lebanon is about 25 miles east of Nashville doesn’t mean it’s short on things to do.

Adjacent to the Don Fox Community Park is the Lebanon Golf & Country Club, a private golf course. Fiddlers Grove Historic Village on the east side of Lebanon is a time capsule where residents can experience early life in Middle Tennessee and the Wilson County Fairgrounds is not far away. Located in the heart of the city, the Lebanon-Wilson County Library is located just off Cumberland Street near Cumberland University.
