But along with Zillow, it appears Forbes is also jumping on the Nashville bandwagon, claiming it’s also one of the best places to invest in a home in 2017 as well. According to their release, Nashville ranked 8th overall, attributing 9% annual home price growth and 2.7% annual job growth as the primary reasons why a Nashville home investment this year might pay dividends in both the short and long-term.

Nashville Real Estate Market in 2017Now that the calendar has officially flipped over to 2017, it didn’t take long for national real estate website Zillow to rank what should be the hottest real estate markets of the new year.

Overall, Zillow expects home values nationwide to jump by 3% in 2017, with many cities in the western portion of the country likely outperforming the national average. Even still, Zillow is also anticipating a very familiar city
