Williamson County Leads The Nation In Job Growth

Williamson County Leads The Nation In Job Growth

You’ve probably seen the census data tracking the population boom in Middle Tennessee over the past few years — over our 14-county area, we’ve had more than double the national growth rate between 2010 and 2015, and it’s hard to miss that fact while you’re trying to find a parking spot in downtown Nashville. 


You’ve probably also wondered what's driving that intense, steady growth. Yeah, it’s the music scene, and the food scene, and the fact that it’s really pretty and still affordable compared to many other areas with cultural riches to boast. But sometimes the reasons are practical, too: jobs.


According to a new Brentwood Home Page story, Williamson County currently leads the nation in job growth. The whole U.S. of A. Not bad.


More specifically: Among large U.S. counties with 75,000 or more jobs, Williamson County topped everyone, percentage-wise, in year-over-year growth between 2015 and 2016. Williamson’s gains, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics: 6.7 percent. National gains: 1.5 percent.


That’s undeniably impressive, and just one of many reasons that a Williamson address is a prized commodity. Thinking about making Williamson County home? I picked out some properties on the market now, holding Open Houses this weekend, for my weekly roundup this week.

Then, my Williamson picks:



{mls: 1781640}

2136 Chaucer Park Ln

Thompsons Station, TN 37179

$384,900

If Brentwood or Franklin budgets are feeling a little out of reach, but you’re still determined to get into Williamson, Thompsons Station is well worth a look — it’s a great community, and you can get a lot of house for the money, comparatively. It’s only about 30 miles from Nashville, too. A good example: This 3-bed, 2 1/2-bath home, with just shy of 2700 square feet, has classic curb appeal, fabulous finishes (like everything you want in a modern kitchen, including stone countertops and steel appliances), and just three houses down, there’s a community pool and playground. Open Sunday, 2 to 4 p.m.




{mls: 1787121}

1128 Deer Lake Rd

Franklin, TN 37069

$510,000

You get the full experience of Middle Tennessee’s natural beauty with this Franklin home — it sits on a private, acre-plus lot that’s leafy and lush, with incredible views. Inside, the two-story living room is a stunner, but don’t worry about hoofing up to the top; there’s an elevator. Open Sunday, 2 to 4 p.m.




{mls: 1786746}

121 Princess Cir

Franklin, TN 37064

$699,000

As in Nashville, new construction is booming in Franklin; and, just like Nashville, you're not stuck with a cookie-cutter if you're looking at new builds. We’re seeing lots of stylish new construction like this home, with details that hark back to past eras in a wonderful way. The custom wainscoting, coffered ceilings, elegant tile choices and waterfall granite island all make this an eye-grabber. Open Saturday and Sunday, 2 to 4 p.m.




{mls: 1787434}

449 Wild Elm St

Franklin, TN 37064

$799,900

For those seeking a family-centric community, it’s hard to beat Westhaven in Franklin — picturesque and tight-knit, with homes that largely nod aesthetically to traditional, timeless architecture. This property is all set up for a large family, with 5 beds, 5 1/2 baths and nearly 4000 square feet of space, and it’s just a few years old — literally good as new. The finishes are elegant and beautiful inside, but I think my favorite spot is the patio with outdoor fireplace. This time of year, that has a coziness that’s pretty irresistible. Open Sunday, 2 to 4 p.m.




{mls: 1712789}

218 Everbright Ave

Franklin, TN 37064

$917,500

Historic Downtown Franklin is truly a local gem — cozy, small-town feel, fantastic dining and shopping, cool architecture… it’s one of my favorite parts of Middle Tennessee. From time to time, you’ll see some of the spectacular turn-of-the-century homes there hit the market; I’m glad that developers are also leaning toward new builds like this, that have all the modern convenience/efficiency but fit in aesthetically with the older homes. Facade to tiles to trim, this 5-bed, 5-full- and 2-half-bath home feels classic, and looks beautiful. Open Sunday, 2 to 4 p.m.



If you’re about to embark on a hunt for a new Williamson County home, I’d love to help you find the right place. Give me a call and tell me what you need, and I’ll start tracking it down!
