Default Moving to Nashville - Urban/SemiUrban Neighborhood - help!!

Ok guys, I've had a change in my employment and have decided to leave Hendersonville and move to Nashville. As much as I love Hendersonville, I now need to be right in between both it and Franklin. I've also decided I'm ready for an urban/semi urban neighborhood like I had in France.

The areas I'm looking at are East Nash/5 points, Sylvan Park, Belmont/Hillsboro, 12 South, and Germantown. Feel free to suggest anymore that might be like these...some place where we can walk/bike to restaurants, bars, shops, etc. (No Bellevue, Antioch, Hermitage, Joelton, etc.)

I'm going to move in December and want to rent at first. I'm looking to spend up to 1600 a month. I would need 2-3 bedrooms and either a backyard or close common greenspace/park because I have 3 dogs.

Do you think this is doable in one of the neighborhoods I listed or is there another place I should look? I've been browsing realtracs and craigslist but haven't found exactly what I'm looking for so if any of you know anything that will be coming up for rent in the next couple months, let me know! Thanks for any help or advice you guys can give.

I think you can definitely find a place in East Nashville that will allow you the freedom to walk/bike to restaurants and shops and have you close to the dog park at Shelby. You might even want to consider some homes that may be for sale and not listed as rentals but under the right circumstances the owner may very well consider a rental...

Great to hear vivalafrance. Inglewood might also be an option as well to check out even though it isn't quite as walkable as the areas right near Five Pionts, it's very bikeable and you have Riverside Village close by. Anyway, good luck on the move and the new neighborhood where you land...

If you take the time to look through some of these threads there are a number of discussions going on with a wealth of information on all these neighborhoods. Its more information than you will ever get in this thread.

Obviously, as a long time member of this forum, I know these questions have been asked and I have looked through the forum. I also know that every situation is unique and information changes. I was just hoping for some fresh ideas.

I guess we should just sticky all the old posts and close the forum - everything has already been answered!

Congrats on the new job! I made the commute from Hendersonville to Franklin/Cool Springs for about a year before getting relocated to another office in downtown Nashville. The Franklin commute, to me, wasn't terrible. It wasn't fun either, but I loaded my iPod with some podcasts and it made it better.

That said, I think you'd be a good fit in E Nashville. The only issue there I see is that I see a lot of "For Sale" homes and not many "For Rent" homes. Could be a supply/demand issue there. You might also look in the Gulch. With all those condos that went up and with many now vacant, I have to think there's some good rental opportunities there.

Vive, I live in East Nashville & I absolutely LOVE my neighborhood....but....if I personally was going to rent something, I would be renting in Hillsboro Village.

They're both fun areas & I'm sure you'll be happy in either neighborhood, but I feel like the East Side is prime real estate to BUY a house & the village is a cool area to rent a house.

Best of Luck!

That seems to be what everyone is saying and indeed the rentals I've looked at in East Nashville don't seem too nice (but the for sale homes do).

Vive---I did a little digging & here are 2 East Nashville rentals that I wouldn't hesitate to put any of my closest friends or family in...


2406 N 16th Street-South Inglewood 5 bedroom 2 bath home with finished
basement and fenced back yard for only $1400 month, $1000 deposit $70
nonrefundable application fee... or buy it for $229,900

3520 Golf Street - 3 bedroom 2 bath Inglewood all brick with fenced
back yard. $1375 month, $1000 deposit, $70 nonrefundable application
fee or buy it for $189,900...

I know 3 families on Golf Street & 2 on North 16th, now you have a price point to compare EN with other areas.

Hmm, thanks for the suggestions but I think Inglewood is probably a bit too far north for me.
