The latest issue of the Nashville Ledger delves into the topic of affordable homes in our area, and how Middle Tennessee’s growth is affecting the availability of those homes. It’s a timely and important topic, and one we certainly think a lot about here.

Our aim at TJ Anderson Homes is to serve our community in the broadest sense — and that includes first-time buyers hunting for a home on a tight budget, and growing families looking for a big home with bold amenities. We work hard to know the market here north to south, east to west, up-and-coming corner to up-and-come neighborhood, so that when a client comes to us, whatever his or her needs may be, we can laser in on not just the perfect house, but the perfect home.

So with affordability on the mind, i’m focusing this week’s Open Houses roundup on homes on the market here that can fit a tight budget and still offer charm and comfort.

The recent median home sales price in Nashville hovers around $210,000, so we’ll take a look at some homes on the market, hosting Open Houses this weekend, that have an asking price around that median.

First, let’s look at the broader Open House picture:


And here, some affordable homes you can visit over the weekend:

Moving southeast of downtown to the Valley View Meadows area, you’re getting lots of bang for your buck — like this 4-bed, 1 1/2-bath 1963 ranch, listed at just over $150,000. If you like a mid-century home that hasn’t had its retro look gutted, take a look — it’s open Sunday 2 to 4 p.m.

More and more budget-conscious buyers are looking north toward Madison, which offers easy access to white-hot East Nashville, plus space, affordability and some really cute houses. Case in point, this 3-bed, 2-bath, 2,000-plus-square-foot home with a fantastic open kitchen/living/dining area with a vaulted ceiling, cute gas fireplace and a huge bonus room. Open Sunday 2 to 4 p.m.

I just mentioned white-hot East Nashville, and that includes white-hot Inglewood, a growing, tight-knit and charmingly leafy corner east of the river. Finding a home in Inglewood under $300,000 certainly isn’t as easy as it once was, but here’s a really cute 3-bed, 2-bath home in the Broadmoor area that’s well-kept and has a great fenced-in yard, just over $200,000. Open Sunday 2 to 4 p.m.

We’ll squeak just a little higher on the budget scale for this one, right in the mix of that white-hotness in East Nashville, walking distance to all sorts of shops and restaurants. The cozy 1930 home has 2 beds and 1 bath, with just over 1000 square feet, a deep lot and really cute fireplace. It’s open Sunday from 2 to 4 p.m., and given the location, it likely won’t last long. 

Wherever your budget sits, we’d love to help you hunt down your dream home. Drop us a line and tell us about what you’re looking for!
