Moving to Nashville - What You Need To Know

Are you moving to Nashville? I am always amazed at people who are moving to Nashville, and don't really have a plan on how to make the most of the opportunities that Nashville has to offer. If I get the opportunity to help, I start out by asking what I think are basic questions.

  • Where will you be working? Nashville is spread out and it can be very time consuming to drive across the city to work every day. If possible, I recommend that you purchase your home in a location that keeps your commuting to a reasonable time.
  • Are schools important to you? If so, I would look for the schools first before looking at homes. In the Nashville area, the schools in Williamson county have the best test scores of public schools and as you might expect, home prices are a little higher because of the demand. In my opinion, owning a home in Brentwood to have access to the best schools just makes sense if you can afford it. If not, look at Franklin or Spring Hill.
  • What type of activities are important to you? If you are a boating fanatic, Nashville has two lakes on the east side of town that might be interesting to you. Old Hickory lake is the only one that allows for private boat docks. If you love the downtown activities of Predators hockey, the Tennessee Titans, Vanderbilt sporting events, the music events, then you may be interested in the downtown condos or homes in Green Hills or Belle Meade.
  • Is shopping your thing? Let me tell you about the Mall at Cool Springs, with over 100 places to eat in the immediate surrounding area.

The real point is this, Find out where you will be working and spending your time, then purchase the best home you can find in that area. That's what a good realtor does. I can't tell you how many people I've moved from Bellevue to Franklin because of the schools, or from Murfreesboro to Brentwood to reduce daily commuting time by over an hour. If you are moving to Nashville, let me help, it will save you a lot of money and stress.
