Hey peoples. Can anyone suggest a nice, low-crime, affordable housing, decent jobs, good schools area outside of Nashville or inside of Nashville but more on the out-skirts? I don't want to be in the middle of dtwn. I am AA but don't care what other race is around as long as there is no racism visible. I thought Franklin was the one until I searched the housing prices -- can't get much unless you get a $200,000+ house.

Thanks for your help!!!

We are moving to Mount Juliet. It is soooooo beautiful there. We have friends that have moved there 3 years ago and have done nothing but convince us to make the same move as well. Try looking there.

In the original post, the guy said that Franklin was probably too expensive. If Franklin is too expensive, Brentwood is pretty out of the question. It is a very white collar community, and the average home price there is $500,000+ and many subdivisions with million dollar houses are being started/finished (Governors Club, Hampton Reserve, Princeton Hills, McGavock Farms, Annandale, Magnolia Vale, etc). Like many others, I would probably recommend Mt. Juliet or Lebanon. Antioch does have affordable housing, but it is in Davidson County, and the Metro Nashville schools aren't too very good. Good luck!

brentwood and franklin arent all that expensive.yes, there are some select neighborhoods with $1 million+ homes; but there are neighborhoods in some areas that do have cheaper homes.

What can you tell me about Springfield?
We are looking into the area.
We are older parents, that have a 7 year old.

How are the schools in Springfield?
My husband plays Softball, do they have Adult Softball?
We are looking for a smaller town, away from Nashville.
Close enough to visit Nashville if we want, but, not touched by traffic, and high population.

At present, we live outside of the Twin Cities (Minneapolis/St.Paul), the Urban scrawl, has reached the Suburbs. There are too many people here, too much traffic, too many strip malls going up, and the town we live in has lost that small town feel, and has been swallowed up into the "big city."

Well, hope you don't mind that I answer the question. Springfield, like so many communities around Middle TN, is beautiful. Lots of land and open spaces, although development is picking up. Hendersonville is also a lovely community with lots of family-centered activity. Not sure about the adult softball, but they do have a lot of sports going on. Schools are very popular in this area too.

Are you looking to buy or rent?

Oh and one more thing. Lots of folks get misled about the so-called 'low' price of housing in Tenn. Like any other place, it's all relative. Tenn is still lower than most states, but just like anywhere else, generally speaking, the cheaper the property the more questionable it is. i.e. condition, location, etc.
