I recently relocated to Franklin with my family. We're in a short-term apartment right now, hoping to buy a house within the next 3-6 months. My husband is working in Goodlettsville and our family is in Columbia, so we're trying to find something in between those two areas. We've been focusing on Franklin and Thompsons Station- looking for a 4BR house with a nice yard, ideally in at or below 300,000. Schools are a big concern for us with 2 young children. We've found quite a few homes we like in T. Station, and in Franklin we really like Sullivan Farms at the moment. I was reading some old posts and came across the issues with fumes from Superior Essex. Is that still an issue in the area? I'm concerned that if we did decide to purchase in Sullivan Farms that it could be a health issue and/or affect the value of our home. Any other thoughts on Thompsons station v Franklin? I appreciate any input!!

I've noticed the smell, but mostly when I'm driving right next to Superior Essex plant.

It doesn't smell every day, and the small is almost always gone by the time you get to the stop sign at Noah Dr. or Columbia.

Some people may be more sensitive to the smell, but it really doesn't seem that bad to me.

I'm honestly not that worried about the smell itself bothering me or my family, more just worried if it will give a negative stigma to the neighborhood that would affect home values or if the chemicals would potentially have any impact on my family's health. I've driven in the area regularly for the past 2 months and never noticed any smell.
