Nashville, TN Homes for Sale

Located in Davidson County, the city of Nashville is the anchor to a metro population of nearly 2 million residents. The growth of Nashville has caused residents to expand outside of city limits and explore neighboring cities such as Gallatin and Hendersonville to the north, Mount Juliet and Lebanon to the east, Franklin and Brentwood to the south, and Pegram and White Bluff to the west. Much of this growth is thanks to a lower cost of living and a strong local economy. Tennessee has a favorable tax rate for residents and businesses alike. Many businesses are relocating their corporate headquarters to Nashville in response and residents from high-tax states such as California and New York are moving to Nashville daily.

About Nashville, Tennessee

How's the Nashville real estate market?

Music City as it's known is mostly comprised of single-family homes although Downtown Nashville has a number of luxurious high-rise residential condos. The residential real estate boom Nashville is undergoing is largely the result of a city-wide housing shortage. Even though Downtown Nashville seems like it has been taken over by cranes and new construction in the suburbs, people are moving to the city faster than developers can provide extra housing. As long as home buyers are competing over a limited number of desirable properties, home values should continue to skyrocket. This isn’t to say, however, that all Nashville neighborhoods are created equal. To treat the city as a real estate monolith would be selling short the astounding housing variety within city limits. Although most options do not come cheap, Nashville offers homeowners everything from The Gulch’s downtown penthouses (typically 1,000 - 2,000 square feet) to the tree-lined suburban avenues of Green Hills (typically 2,500 - 4,000 square feet). Whatever style of living you're seeking, it’s somewhere to be found in Nashville’s patchwork of distinctive neighborhoods. Homes in exceptionally walkable areas, like East End, often list for anywhere from $400,000 to over one million dollars. Places like Germantown, with easy access to Downtown, feature properties that range from around half a million dollars to three times that much. Those looking for a more affordable entry into the city limits might consider settling in the Antioch, Bellevue, Donelson, or Madison neighborhoods. Many of the homes in these neighborhoods were built in the 1960s and 1970s but have since been updated. Since becoming a homeowner in Nashville often represents a considerable financial commitment, it’s wise to get to know the character of each neighborhood to find the one best suited to your lifestyle and budget. Once you become well-acquainted with the real estate market of your desired area, you’ll have all the tools to secure your future in Nashville, Tennessee To get an accurate home valuation estimate, use our Nashville home value calculator.

Why are homes in Nashville a good investment?

The greater metro real estate market continues to be one of the hottest in the United States. While much of the country has watched their home prices stagnate since 2018, Nashville’s housing market has continued to appreciate at an impressive rate. Even in 2020, a year defined by an economically debilitating pandemic, the average sale price of a Nashville home has increased by 16.7%. This momentum doesn’t seem to be slowing any time soon, as the market experts at Felix Homes Realty expect the city’s home values to rise by around 7% in 2021. One of the main factors that cause a real estate market to decline is the rate of foreclosures. Luckily, the influx of businesses and residents moving to Nashville, combined with historically low mortgage rates means the Nashville market will likely be shielded from a rise in the rate of foreclosures. Open houses in the Nashville market are most commonly held on Sundays from 2:00PM - 4:00PM.
