Nashville Area Neighborhoods That Are Poised For Growth In 2017

Back in 2014, I put together a rundown of what I considered to be Nashville’s up-and-coming neighborhoods.


Spoiler alert: A whole lot has changed in Nashville real estate over that relatively short time.


Some neighborhoods, like The Nations and Inglewood, have grown to a point where many first-time Nashville homebuyers already consider them a tough reach. Others that I pointed out still have room to grow. Since 2014, Nashville areas I didn’t pinpoint have started to rise (or quickened their pace), too.


Considering all that — and the fact that I talk with Nashville home buyers every week who are eager to find a home they love and make a smart investment — it seemed like a good time to go through that neighborhoods-on-the-rise exercise again.


So, here, some locations in the Nashville area that I think are poised for significant growth over the next three or so years:


Woodbine/Radnor

37210 and 37211

In 2014, I mentioned a “really approachable cost of living” in Woodbine. The opportunities to find a bargain in Woodbine have definitely shrunk, in part because it’s such a cool neighborhood, in part because there’s a severe lack of inventory there. Demand’s rising, supply is dwindling.

We absolutely love Woodbine, and that’s a big part of why we’ve been investing there, building and renovating homes. We just listed two beautiful new properties on 2208 Miller Street, and 100 Rose Street, and another is on the way. (If you want some more info, give me a call.)


Donelson 

37214

{mls: 1823340}

Being included among the 20 Hottest Residential Zip Codes in the U.S. wasn’t unwarranted for 37214. Over the last six months, we’ve seen multiple offers on almost every home that’s hit the market under $200,000.


It’s bound to only going to get more competitive in the Donelson area — high-end new construction (like the home pictured above) is moving in more and more, and older ranches are getting snatched up and renovated.


South Nashville, Nippers Corner

37211

{mls: 1821753}

I guess you could say I’m bullish on the south side of town these days — areas that are close to Brentwood and still a convenient shot up to downtown Nashville, without the hype of East/West Nashville, but still with lots to offer. Neighborhoods like The Highlands and Cloverland Acres have a mix of older and newer homes, each with a good amount of square footage for the money, neighborly vibes and room to grow.


Bordeaux

37218

{mls: 1822033}

Musicians and artists who’ve fled rising prices in spots like East Nashville and Germantown have been finding affordability and possibility heading northwest, to Bordeaux. If you’re trying to find a fixer-upper in an area with potential, Bordeaux is worth exploring. You can still find good-bones homes that need TLC under $100 a square foot, which, closer to downtown, is pretty much a distant memory.


Brentwood

37027

{mls: 1811588}

I know. But yes, Brentwood. There are pockets — especially the Franklin corridor between Old Hickory Blvd. and Concord — that offer affordability, relative to the rest of that upscale area. Trying to find a mid-century property in a desired area that’ll let you satisfy your Chip and Joanna Gaines/Fixer Upper jones? Don’t ignore 37027. You’re close to all that “downtown Brentwood” commercial growth, good lot sizes, desirable schools… there’s a lot to like, and it hasn’t peaked yet.


Are you trying to find a Nashville home in an area that’s poised for growth? I’d love to help you explore. Call or email TJ Anderson Homes, and tell me about what you’re looking for.
