I'm going to have to disagree with the first part of your post. "Murfreesboro Road area" and "wonderful homes" don't belong in the same sentence, unless maybe you're talking about Murfreesboro Road in Franklin.

Murfreesboro Road is bad news from downtown all the way to LaVergne. A general rule for those who insist on buying a home in Antioch is that the further you get from Murfreesboro Road, whether it be out Hobson Pike toward Mt. Juliet or out Bell Road/OHB toward Brentwood, the better.

Default Antioch

Hi everybody. I am new here and i do not know how to post. Sorry. Anyway, my question is about the Antioch, tn area...

I am not planning on moving, but i want to know if their is a large African American population there. Are their any black enclaves of off Nolensville road in Antioch? Are their any black neighborhoods in Antioch. If so, where in Antioch? Thanks.

Jamal

"Black enclaves"? What if someone was seeking to live in a "white enclave" or a "white neighborhood"? How well would that post be received?

The demographics for zip code 37013 can be found on this site. Is there any particular reason your cousin "wants" to live in Antioch? Most upstanding, law-abiding citizens I know who live there "want" to get out.

Well I live in east Nashville and I have heard bad things about Antioch. I know people who go to Antioch high school and they say it is bad. There is alot of crime there and Gang territorys.I know because my Aunt worked at the juvenile detention center and she said most people that come in are from Antioch. However it is very multicultural there...

Just now checking on realtracs shows a minimum of 100k more for the equivalent house. Sorry folks, I can buy 2 houses in Antioch for the price of 1 in Franklin. And as long as we continue to have no problems here, I find that difficult to beat.
Nothing personal to anyone that posts here but I personally would not want to live in Williamson County, overpriced homes with a lot of cookie cutter subdivisions. Couple that with over-inflated gas prices in general and the lack of walkability to anything, it's just not very appealing to me. Sure if you live near downtown (Franklin), but who can afford that? I just read that Williamson County also leads the state in foreclosures. So looks like a lot of people have been paying over-inflated prices for homes that they cannot afford. Like I said, nothing personal to any residents but you always just hear all the pro's (great schools!) and none of the cons on this website regarding Williamson County. But when areas like Antioch, East Nashville or Madison come up, the cons are always the first thing that comes up (and sometimes the only thing). In times like today factors such as affordability and walkability matter more than ever. And if you want we can factor in a new phenomenon that some are calling the "New Urban Movement" where newer college grads more and more are favoring moving closer to the city as opposed to the suburbs. Call it the "Sex in the City"/Friends" effect. Many of these new grads are not in love with the suburbs as many of us in our 30's+ were. Now don't get me wrong, I don't think that Williamson County will become the next Compton any time soon. But the areas around it could very well become the ghettos of today. This is already happening in the Chicago area to an extent. Just a little food for thought when thinking about home appreciation. For me it's the country or the city, not in between. Now the downtown condo/East Nashville bashing can begin...

That description pretty much fits most of the country now. The Antioch area near the lake around Anderson Rd/Smith Springs Rd is nice. Nice well kept homes, safe and close enough to everything to be convenient. We live near there in a Nashville zip, but walk dogs and bike all the time through those Antioch neighborhoods.
