Nashville is a dynamic city with a diverse economy. Music, Health Care, Tech and the Automotive industry have strong roots in Nashville and all sectors are growing. No state income tax, and low property taxes in the area attract families in all price ranges. Nashville is home to several Universities including Vanderbilt, Belmont, Lipscomb and Trevecca. Middle TN State University is the state’s largest university and is located 40 miles south of Nashville.
Nashville has been ranked as one of the best places for job growth for several years now. The counties surrounding are sought after for retirees. Williamson County schools just south of Nashville are the highest ranked schools in the state. During the national 2008-2010 recession Williamson County’s economy actually expanded with positive GDP. Areas of Nashville real estate values were flat during that period, but overall did not decrease.
I have lived in the Nashville area my entire life and I am familiar with all areas and traffic concerns, schools and where the growth patterns are happening.
Investment Price Points in Tennessee
Investing in Nashville involves knowing the area. Areas close to the Universities have a constant stream of tenants which is great, but most of these investments will involve condos or townhomes. There are several that have too high HOA fees which makes them prohibitive to cash flow, but there are many attractive units also. Entry level price point in this area for such is $200,000 - $250,000.
Homes – The zip codes with the highest net worth / income are very attractive for investors, but tear down homes can cost as much as $600,000 or more. If you price point is below such, then you must purchase outside the city core. Bellevue area is west of Nashville and has an attractive price point for investors.
Williamson County / Franklin / Brentwood – This county has one of the highest income per capita in the country. Homes in this area also tie for being the largest average size per square foot in the country. There is a constant need for rentals in the area. The area is home to large Fortune 500 corporations and is a mecca for corporate relocations. Investing in Brentwood will take a minimum of $550K to $600K for a price of a home due to averages being well above a million. Franklin investments can be lower, but may have some HOA restrictions.
