Sylvan Park Home SalesIf you’ve been paying any attention at all to home prices in Nashville’s Sylvan Park neighborhood, you might be inclined to agree that it’s now become one of the city’s hottest places to call home. Demand for housing here seems to be at an all-time high, and when you take a closer look at both listing prices and recent sales prices in the area, you’ll also find that housing costs around Sylvan Park are also breaking records as well. 

As of today, the neighborhood’s most expensive listing is priced at $1.28 million—a price that would shatter Slyvan Park’s current record-setting sale of $985,000 should  the property be sold for anywhere near what the current home owners of 109 42nd Avenue are asking. 

Several other homes for sale in Sylvan Park are

Selling a Home in Summer Your Nashville home's landscaping makes a big impact on your home's curb appeal. Well-designed landscaping can make a good impression on buyers before they even set foot in your home, whereas poor landscaping, dead plants and debris risks giving the wrong impression that your home is poorly maintained.

In Tennessee, landscaping to sell in late summer is a challenge, especially if you're not able to pay as much attention to your home's landscaping at other times of the year. Late summer is a time when hot temperatures and dryer conditions can make it difficult to reinvigorate old plants or install new plants. These tips will help you bring your Nashville yard & outdoor living spaces back to life before home buyers come to see your property.

Every year we see various publications rank some of the best places to live in the U.S., best places to work in the U.S., and so on down the line. And although it’s hard to quantify what these rankings really mean in the grand scheme of things, it’s still nice to see Nashville continue to get recognition for everything it has to offer. 

Earlier in 2016, Forbes ranked Nashville as one of the best big cities in the country for job growth right now, while Credit Sesame mentioned Music City as one of the best places in the U.S. for young home buyers looking to finally make that long awaited transition from renting to owning. 

As we continue to push through a year that’s really seen a lot of positive growth in so many different ways, Nashville is

Tiny Home Trends Are tiny houses the trend of the future? Are micro apartments even livable? What does the future hold in terms of size and price?

The American family home has increased substantially in size in the past 40 or so years, according to the U.S. Census Bureau.

In that same period of time, the number of persons per household has decreased, so no matter how you look at the statistics, the average space each person in this country occupies, has increased in the years since 1973.

In that year, the average single family home contained just 1,660 square feet. In 2015, the average was 2,687 square feet. In 1973, the average family size was 3.01 in that average home.

Now? The average is down to 2.54 in the average house. The median numbers show

Cool Springs New ConstructionAs first reported by The Tennessean last week, a joint venture between Denver-based Northwood Investors and Boyle Investment Co. could bring a massive $270 million mixed-use development to one of Cool Springs’ largest undeveloped tracts. 

What would occupy a 45-acre site that sits just west of Interstate 65, the new project could include as much as 750,000 square feet of office space, over 100,000 square feet of retail space, a 150-room hotel, and up to 580 luxury apartment residences.

Although infrastructure plans still need to be submitted to the city of Franklin, site work could actually start before the end of the year. Overall, the new development is expected to be built out in several different phases, starting with 165,000 square feet go

Nashville Real Estate NewsIt’s been a scorching hot year for the Nashville real estate market so far, but for just the second time in the past 12 months, home sales in Middle Tennessee were on the decline last month. According to recently released numbers from The Greater Nashville Association of Realtors, the market saw 3,705 home closings in July, which is down 3.3% from July of 2015. The last drop in sales came all the way back in November when the number of transactions was also down just over 3% as well. 

For the most part, the recent dip in Nashville home sales is hardly a concern. The number of pending sales in the Nashville area is still at a high level, and the incredible pace at which we’ve been seeing homes sell in Nashville and many of its suburbs wasn't going to

First Time Home Buyers Love at first sight happens, especially when you're house hunting. That kind of attraction can be exhilarating and exciting, but it can also be excruciatingly painful if it does not last, or if it ends in disappointment either before or after you actually call a home your own.

Rather than hoping to be swept off your feet by the perfect home, it might be better to look for the type of home in which you can build a lasting relationship by getting familiar with one another over time. The analogy isn't perfect, but you get the point. A home that you can grow to like -- a lot -- while living together might not be a stunner in the short term. It might, in fact, have some flaws that you will want to address. But it is often wiser to seek the potential

Spring Hill, TN DevelopmentRight now, the Spring Hill community is known most for its quiet rural setting and laid-back suburban lifestyle, which is what most current residents love about living here most. But as a city that’s continuing to focus on growth and development, Spring Hill could be seeing a jump in population sooner rather than later.

Earliest this spring, reports surfaced about a proposed project that would add 1,200 new single-family homes and townhouses to town, as well as 25,000 square feet of new retail and office space as well. The project, called Harvest Point, could bring as many as 5,000 new home owners to Spring Hill, which has some locals concerned about roads, schools, and other community amenities not being able to handle such a significant spike in
