Nashville Tennessee Statistics

History of Nashville
Nashville owes its name to General Francis Nash (1742-77), a hero of the American Revolution. The city was also of primary strategic importance during the Civil War, occupying a crucial location along the Cumberland River. The 1864 Battle of Nashville occurred here — it was the climactic, last great offensive of the Confederates.
Today Nashville real estate continues to live up to its Music City nickname. Every major record label has an office in Nashville, and the nightlife is largely characterized by the abundance of live music. Buskers populate the street corners, and bars and clubs like the famous Wild Horse Saloon have weekly televised country dances. Nash-Vegas is also a popular nickname for the city to reflect the growing cosmopolitan feel of the city. Locals have been known to refer to Nashville as Cashville as a mark of respect to one of its finest country music stars Jonny Cash.
Johnny Cash actually bought a lake home in Hendersonville which unfortunately burnt down. More recently, the news of the network TV series called "Nashville" was announced to be going into another season. The TV show is a "commercial" for Nashville as many of the scenes feature iconic locations and vistas of the area.
Live music is not exclusive to Nashville. The abundance of talent in the Middle Tennessee area means that you can find world-class musicians playing in any of the surrounding towns and communities. Places like Leipers Fork frequently have top-class performers playing in the intimate venue of Puckett's.
Country Music and more ...
The success of Carrie Underwood on American Idol and her subsequent move to Nashville has helped raise the profile of country music and the city itself to a whole new audience previously unfamiliar with Nashville. More recently other music shows have featured Nashville residents prominently which all helps to create more awareness of Nashville as the music capital of the south. More HERE.
Nashville's Developing Communities
Franklin, Brentwood, Thompsons Station, and more
Nashville also has well-established communities and cities that are only a short 15-, 30-, or 45-minute drive away. Click here for the Nashville Drive Time Map.
East Nashville has been quietly transforming over the past 15 years from an area of urban decline to one of the most desirable areas that attract artists of all genres. The influx of creative residents has seen some amazing renovations which in turn have opened the appeal to residents who enjoy good restaurants with a creative side! Places like Family Wash provide weekly entertainment provided by local musicians in an eclectic atmosphere in an old laundry!
Franklin TN real estate, to the south of Nashville, has the highest concentration of million-dollar luxury homes in the Greater Nashville area. The historic downtown area was well preserved and is largely responsible for the area's appeal to its residents. Just a little further south is the rapidly growing communities of Thompson Station, Spring Hill, and Columbia. Mt Juliet and Lebanon to the east are now connected via a new railroad system for commuters which has helped to increase the home values over the past few years.
Hendersonville TN is to the northeast of Nashville and is known as the city of the lake due to its location on Old Hickory Lake. Jonny Cash, Roy Orbison, Conway Twitty all made their homes here and helped to create the city of Hendersonville Tennessee as we know it today. The development and growth of this area is continuing with the new 400-acre shopping development called Streets of Indian Lake. Just recently Sam's Club opened its doors as a major anchor store which has added a significant financial boost to the area.
The popularity of living on the lake continues today and Gallatin has the added attraction of having the only golf course community on the lake in the whole greater Nashville Tennessee area.
Lakefront Homes on Old Hickory Lake
To the northeast, the popular lakefront cities of Hendersonville and Gallatin have homes that have until recently been considered a little remote. However, the expansion of I65 North to 5 lanes and the extension of the Vietnam Veterans Expressway have made these communities easily accessible to Nashville
In fact, Gallatin is home to Fairvue Plantation which is the only lakefront and golf course development in the Nashville area. Homes here can reach well over the $3 million dollar mark and have been extremely popular with the discerning luxury home buyer who wants the lake access and golf course community.
There is now a sister lakefront and golf course community at nearby Foxlands in Hendersonville. The lakefront homes that are available are selling fast even with a slight downturn in the real estate market. Lakefront homes have always been seen as a sound financial investment as waterfront homes are always in demand whether its a buyer's market or a seller's market!
Mount Juliet and Providence
Mt. Juliet, to the east of Nashville, is also experiencing a huge growth in retail and residential new construction. The Providence development is proving to be a very popular location for some of the retail giants such as Best Buy utilizing the more than 800,000 sq ft of retail space devoted to shopping, dining, and entertainment.
The Providence project is also featuring residential new homes built by 10 of the leading local and national builders.
Relocating to Nashville Tennessee
Once you move to Nashville Tennessee you'll realize that music is just one aspect of life in Nashville. There are lots of other things to see and do. Nashville is centrally located and has a fantastic interstate infrastructure. As a result, you can drive to Florida in 8 hours and be on the beach or go north and watch the Chicago Cubs play after driving 8 hours! If you are lucky, they may even win. ;)
There are numerous city and state parks for hiking and exploring. Dog parks are very popular and are a great way of meeting people who have moved to Nashville from all over the US and the world.
The arts have always been an important part of the social life in Nashville and The Frist Center is the focus for many of the events and happenings in Nashville.
Eco-Friendly Homes in Nashville
Eco-friendly homes in Nashville are part of the movement towards the environmentally conscious builder appealing to the 'Green" home buyer. For some excellent examples currently being built in Germantown in Nashville click HERE.

The Nashville Market Compared to Other Cities
Nashville continues to gain recognition from a number of different media sources. In other parts of the country, the real estate markets have been very volatile. The Orlando real estate market was something that at one point in time was appreciating so quickly that the state could not process the number of applications for real estate license applications. Other cities across the USA ad similar growth spikes but Nashville has been relatively steady in its recent growth.
The Climate in Nashville Tennessee
The climate in Nashville and Tennessee as a whole is also a major attraction. The 4 seasons provide their own benefits but none of the seasons has any extremes in weather although the summer months can get a little hot and humid in August and September. In 2007 Nashville, like the rest of the country, experienced a heatwave with highs over 100 degrees but on average the summer highs are in the mid-'90s
As Nashville becomes an increasingly popular city to move to the number of new construction real estate sites and developments have expanded to keep up with the ever-rising demand.
Lofts and Downtown Condos
In a return to urban living, downtown Nashville has seen the renovation of older historic buildings and warehouses to accommodate the demand for urban lofts such as Werthan Mills and Rolling Mill Hills lofts. Rolling Mill Hills is now purely rented units.
New condo developments and the projects in the Gulch such as Twelve Twelve are revitalizing the downtown residential community and bringing a new appeal to living in the city of Nashville.
Downtown Nashville itself has the development at Encore Sobro located just off Broadway and very close to the Symphony Hall. Other older developments like the Viridian (sometimes spelled Veridian) are proving to be very popular as resales start to come on the market. New construction is still high in demand especially with prices starting at just under $250,000 and cheaper in some cases.
Compared to other downtown communities around the United States, downtown Nashville still has very affordable products and is well below the density of cities like Chicago and New York. This leads the developers to anticipate a tremendous growth and movement towards inner-city living. As the numbers grow the demand for services and restaurants etc will grow and this, in turn, will increase the demand for downtown condo living.
Some of the communities in and around Nashville are developing the new concept of combining business and residential homes in the same subdivision. Westhaven in Franklin and Tollgate Village in Thompson Station are excellent examples. The concept of being able to live and work as well as socialize and play in the same community is really a throwback to the communities of the past where everyone knew everyone and the feeling of safety and security was enhanced by the sense of belonging and community spirit missing from some of the faceless developments from the sixties and seventies across America.
Luxury Homes and Estate Homes
If you are looking for upscale, gated luxury homes then Nashville has homes that constantly take advantage of the latest designs and technology to provide an environment that can truly be called luxurious. The Ashton Real Estate Group of RE/MAX Advantage are also proud members of the Luxury Real Estate.com organization More HERE.
Looking for equestrian homes with rolling hills and acreage for your horses to roam freely? Leipers Fork, just south of Franklin, may be the perfect choice for you. You'll be in good company as this has become home to some of the wealthiest people in Nashville and has attracted some of the Hollywood "royalty" too! Beechwood Plantation was an equestrian community with homes in the $2M range and lots from around $450. The developers did go into foreclosure so the development is taking longer to sell out but it's still a very good consideration.
Gallatin is the latest city to try and create its own equestrian community, The Paddock (as it was to be called), was selling lots and is in the early development stage but was to provide stable and riding facilities for the homeowners. Homes were projected to be in the low $400,000 to $600,000 range. The economic slowdown of 2009 saw the development put on hold but signs are it will start again soon. As of 2012 the subdivision still hasn't been resurrected but sooner or later work will begin again. Lots were auctioned off in May 2012 which will hopefully allow homes to be built soon.
There is a return to the older self-contained communities that are so popular throughout America and mirror the extremely successful city of Celebration in Orlando Florida. Here the architectural styles of the past and matched with the modern and state-of-the-art features that provide a perfect blend of the old and new.
The concept of community living in safety and having well-established groups within the community means that it's very easy to develop new friends and network if you are a new arrival to Nashville Tennessee.
Nashville Commercial Real Estate
Commercial Real Estate in Nashville is in part responsible for the growth in popularity of Nashville in the past 3 years. Once the major corporations became aware of the standard of living enjoyed by the residents of Nashville, and relatively low real estate values, the appeal was transformed into corporate relocations like Nissan, LP, Mars, etc. The positive business environment has had the trickle-down effect of producing more jobs which in turn leads to increased demand for new housing and subdivision developments.
The new residents were attracted to move to Nashville because of the expanding job market then spend their money as consumers within the Nashville market. This, in turn, breeds competition which then helps to stimulate the demand for more commercial real estate.
Nashville Tennessee real estate is still proving to be very attractive to out-of-state buyers. With the relocation of Nissan HQ to the Nashville area in 2007, the real estate market was given another boost and raised national awareness of this comparatively undervalued real estate market. It has also just been announced that Nashville is one of the safest real estate markets. The ranking, released by PMI Mortgage Insurance Co. says Nashville is the fourth-least risky of the nation's 50 largest housing markets. Memphis is the second least risky market, followed by Pittsburgh.
The city of Nashville is populated by about 569,805 residents, and the entire 10-county Nashville Economic Market is about 1,541,659 people strong.
Nashville is lucky to have two major teams in the world of professional sports. The Tennessee Titans are recognized as one of the best teams in the NFL and their potential continues to grow with every season. More about the Titans HERE.
Update: The Nashville Predators Ice Hockey team is fast becoming one of the most popular ice hockey teams in the country.
