Did you know that just a little less than a year ago, Forbes magazine ran a piece on the top 52 most populated cities in the entire USA and projected Nashville, Tennessee to rank as the 3rd best 'boom city'? That means that out of every major city in America, over the next 10 years Nashville is projected to cement its position as an economic stronghold through continued economic growth and smart development.
So, why does this matter to you as a home buyer? Well, to understand that question, you need to understand what makes Nashville such a great place to live in right now. It doesn't take much investigation to turn up the reason for the region's economic resilience – a 2008 regional study revealed that 50% of the entire population of the United States lives within a 650 mile radius of Nashville. This means that the capital of Tennessee has three important factors going for it that you, as a perspective home buyer, probably care about:
- Low cost of living – Taxes are cheap and housing is available at just about any price-level. This means it's a great place to raise a family on a budget while still living a comfortable lifestyle.
- Hub for all kinds of commerce – Due to its prime location, executive businessmen and businesswomen will enjoy convenient travel and a rich and reliable economy to call home.
- It will always be fun in Nashville – Nobody wants to live in a boring city, and Nashville is about as far in the other direction as you could possibly go. There is so much to do throughout the city, from dining on the best southern cooking in the country to a day of tranquility in Centennial Park to rockin' the night away at one of the countless venues, that it seems unlikely you'd ever have a dull day.
Nashville, Tennessee is inhabited by folks who live by the familiar moniker, 'work hard, play hard'. Whatever your reason for relocation, there's a home with your name on it in Music City.
