Real Estate Trends of Charlotte Park
Once The Nations and Sylvan Park started their real estate renaissance, it was just a matter of time before Charlotte Park joined the party. Just on the other side of Briley Parkway, only four minutes further outside of town, Charlotte Park offers nearly all the big-city convenience (and maybe even some extra space), at a nice discount. It’s a rooted neighborhood, with a large number of homes built between 1940 and 1999, but builders are working hard to transform that old-fashioned image. Despite the high proportion of older homes, many of the properties on the market are new construction with chic, modern touches. These often sell from around $400k to the high $600s, depending on the number of bedrooms they offer. While these options help drive up property values, older homes keep the market from becoming inaccessible. Many of these updated properties, even with 3+ bedrooms, land in the upper $300s to mid-$400s range. As an added bonus that’s rare this close to downtown Nashville, these homes often stand on lots of a half-acre or more. While there are new apartments in the area, like the Views at Hillwood, builders are focusing almost completely on single-family homes. If you can find a quality apartment, though, rents are quite reasonable. Usually, the price range is around $900-$1,600 per month, which is a fairly low barrier to entry for such a hot Nashville neighborhood.

“I almost moved to Charlotte Park, and it’s a great neighborhood”
I almost moved to Charlotte Park, and it’s a great neighborhood. It’s adjacent to my favorite Nashville neighborhood that I can sadly not afford (Sylvan Park). I love the restaurants in this area, and I loved the old houses. The downside of Charlotte Park is that because it is more affordable you see a lot of tearing down happening in this neighborhood. This ultimately led me to buy in another neighborhood. But, this would be a good option for someone looking for a new build in a great location. I just like older houses.- crosbydigitalmarketing2

The same homes that sold in the mid-$150s around 2010, now often come off the market for twice that. Aside from the trendiness of the location itself, new construction on smaller lots is helping to drive up property values.
