1013 N 6th Street, Nashville, TN, 37207


The before and after on this little farmhouse-style flip in East Nashville's Cleveland Park is pretty breathtaking. I just happened to find the "before" with a Google street view, and of course the "after" is from the MLS photos of the finished flip, which has been staged to a Perfect 10 if you ask me. I say that because it might otherwise be difficult to picture how the open concept living area/dining room/kitchen could function so well. The home isn't a big one, but at 1,476 square feet and with three bedrooms and two bathrooms it's all the house that many of my clients need. Plus, this home is in an area where homes are suddenly skyrocketing in value. (Read: Smart investment.) What's so great about this nabe? It's boasts the same early 1900s architecture as classic 5 Points but at less than half the price. Because demand is crazy high and there's so little inventory, the demand for 37206 is spilling into 37207. More on that in a minute.

The floors at 1013 N. 6th Street are a mix of hardwood and carpet (carpet in the bedrooms). And the back lot is fully fenced with a little back deck opening out of the master suite, which has ceilings that are nearly 13 feet tall. 

Besides the jaw-dropping before and after, what's perhaps most notable about this house is its price. And for once I'm not going to tell you what a good deal a house is. This time I just have to marvel at this little neighborhood that could, as this high of a price tag on a home in Cleveland Park would have been an anomaly even a year ago. Now, it's among a number of houses in Cleveland and McFerrin Parks that is selling for as much as $147.31 a square foot--a price that recently set the record for the highest price per foot in the neighborhood. If a sale currently pending on 1010 Stockell Street goes through, then that record would jump to $176.92 a square foot. This house is priced at $157.60 a square foot. And if things continue this way, this skinny little house on North 6th will only continue to grow in value, alongside every other home in the neighborhood. In other words, it's a good time to get a foothold in Cleveland Park, especially if you like the idea of cheering on this neighborhood as it becomes the next big thing in Nashville. 
This one went quick..obviously! Let our team know if you're interested in seeing any others in the neighborhood. I'd be happy to take you for a look!
