I’m sure you’ve heard by now that Nashville is being called the “It City” and that, depending upon the source, 60-80 people a day are relocating to Music City.
It’s really no wonder that people are drawn here, due to our relatively low cost of living, high quality of life, and central location in the Southeast. Nashville has grown enough that, like larger metropolitan areas around the country, it has much to offer in the way of jobs, affordable residential areas, professional sports, and arts and culture, but at the same time, it has also managed to maintain its small town charm and southern hospitality.
Downtown Nashville has many residential options, ranging from updated lofts in historic buildings to newer high-rise condominiums, and there are more vertical living developments in the works. Within a one- to five-mile radius of Downtown, there are numerous urban neighborhoods such as Germantown, 12South, East Nashville and Sylvan Park, and a little further out, perhaps just as many different suburban areas such as Franklin, Murfreesboro and Hendersonville, each with its own perks, personality and price points.
The business climate in Nashville is diverse and thriving, with healthcare, music, technology, education and tourism being just a few of the major industries. National employers, like Bridgestone and Nissan, have been attracted to Tennessee, due to various factors such as the lack of a state income tax and favorable work laws, and the exceptional quality of life here helps in recruiting employees from all parts of the nation.
The relatively mild climate in Nashville, coupled with the abundant green space and plentiful waterways, allows for year-round outdoor recreation. In addition to its flourishing arts scene and reputation as one of the hottest culinary destinations in the US, Nashville is also home to the NFL’s Tennessee Titans, the NHL’s Nashville Predators, and MiLB’s Nashville Sounds.
