Smyrna, TN Homes for Sale

Located in Rutherford County, Smyrna is a wonderful community roughly 30 minutes southeast of Downtown Nashville.

Running this plant takes a lot of different types of people, which leads to a refreshing cultural mix within the population. In catering to these many backgrounds, Smyrna has amassed an impressive array of attractive community features. Multiple restaurant districts offer everything from Thai food to barbecue, and accessible parks, like the beloved Gregory Mill Park, dot the landscape. Jefferson Mill Recreation Area even borders the Stones river which is supplied by the Percy Priest Lake. Thankfully, these options mirror an accessible and diverse housing market that’s had plenty of practice serving its unique population.

About Smyrna, Tennessee

How's the Smyrna real estate market?

Smyrna’s population has seen a steady rate of increase since the early ‘90s. This has led to an affordable mix of older and more recent residential single family home options that keep the real estate market stable while still allowing for significant appreciation in home values. Although single family homes in southwest Smyrna can command $400,000-$500,000 near the Murfreesboro border, most single-family dwellings run anywhere from the mid $200,000s to the low $300,000s. The 40% of Smyrna residents who rent their homes also have an uncommon amount of desirable housing possibilities. Much of Nashville’s suburban rental market favors townhomes, condos, and apartment living, but not Smyrna, which has loads of single-family rental properties in the $1,500-$1,800 per month range. Homes in Smyrna are generally 2,500 - 4,000 sqft. many of which offer modern attributes such as an open floorplan, granite countertops, and stainless appliances. For those still seeking that upscale apartment lifestyle, though, multiple new construction complexes, like Verandas at Sam Ridley, are situated right where Smyrna and La Vergne meet along I-24. All this housing diversity supports Smyrna’s broad range of residents in their search for an affordable place to call home.
