The Draw Of Homes For Sale In The Nashville Suburbs

From the no-surprise department: “Home buyers get more bang for their buck in Nashville's suburbs,” The Tennessean shared late last week.


True of most cities; definitely true of Nashville as our neighborhoods close to downtown have gotten more desired, more crowded and more expensive.


What is noteworthy in that new piece on Nashville-area real estate in 2018, though: the increasingly attractive new-construction options in various Nashville suburbs.


Among the areas The Tennessean nodded to: Heritage Hills in Hermitage, Carter’s Station in Columbia, River Oaks in Lebanon and Heartland Reserve in Fairview. All of those communities are in growing areas with new businesses and new amenities springing up regularly. And in all of these areas — which are within a relatively reasonable commute to downtown Nashville, Franklin or Brentwood — it’s a lot more probable that you’ll find a new or move-in ready, well-appointed property at or under the average cost for a single-family home in the area.


Curious about what that looks like on the ground? Below, some picks from the Nashville-area MLS that show what you can get for the average price point in the region — about $300,000 — in communities The Tennessean highlighted as great “bang for the buck” options.


HERMITAGE, TN

132 Dueler Drive (Lot 43)

Hermitage, TN 37076

$289,341

Donelson’s had a serious recent popularity rise — with home prices keeping pace — and that's leading more Nashville homebuyers to look just a little further east to Hermitage, where, yes, there’s still bang-for-buck to be found. New homes like this one, in Heritage Hills, offer all the details buyers want in new construction (granite, well-appointed master, flex space, etc.), at $140 per square foot (well under what you’d see in most neighborhoods inside the city).


LEBANON, TN

144 Hartmann Crossing Dr

Lebanon, TN 37087

$299,900

Granite, stainless, hardwoods — all the new-construction must-haves are in place in these new homes in Lebanon, about 40 minutes east of Nashville. And this particular community is right by Don Fox Community Park, with its huge wading pool (great for families with young kids), and by Lebanon Golf & Country Club, if you’re looking for quick access to a course but aren’t planning to specifically move into a golf community in the Nashville area


FAIRVIEW, TN

2001 Case Way Lot 24

Fairview, TN 37062

$307,414

Fairview’s a little out there if you work in Nashville; if your job’s in Franklin or Brentwood, though, you’re a 30-minute or so shot away, in Williamson County. This community has a big plus for families: It’s right near Bowie Nature Park, with 700 acres of natural beauty and loads of stuff to do, from horseback rides to a treehouse playground. The home itself has classic design, upscale details and an impressive amount of space for the price, with 3 beds and 2 1/2 baths.


COLUMBIA, TN

909 Aberdeen Court #55

Columbia, TN 38401

$318,355

Finding a brand new, upscale Nashville-area home in the $300K range with room for a family of six or more is a tall, tall order. But in a suburb like Columbia, it’s more than doable — take this new 5-bed, 3-bath, 2511-square-foot home in the Highlands at Bear Creek, with spacious rooms, lots of flex space, just about five miles from the Downtown Square in Columbia and the scenic Riverwalk Park.


Thinking about moving out to the Nashville suburbs? Prefer to focus closer to downtown Nashville? I’d love to help you find the right home for you and your family. Call or email TJ Anderson Homes, and let me know what you’re looking for.
