Parts of east nashville are bad. But this and many other areas are being gentrified, and in the case of east nashville, some of the historical arts and crafts homes are now fetching 3 and 400k, which is asanine for the area. A good way of telling if a house is in a bad area is if the description says: "transitioning area"

I'm also moving to Nashville from NYC this summer. I've been researching for months now. I can't wait for the new experiences!

Please IM me if you know
Don't expect a reply from a RE agent... I believe their comments would be considered "steering" which is illegal in most states.

I think we're starting to become buddies! I really appreciate your input!

Anyway, which towns are specifically considered East Nashville?

Very specifically, I don't know a ton about specific Nashville neighborhoods only because I grew up in Knoxville, 3 hours east. Actually, if you like Nashville, Knoxville is kind of a smaller version, but closer to the mountains. You might want to research that area too. It is worth looking into, plus... it is even cheaper.

Hi The New Yorker!

I am a real estate agent, and the previous poster is correct that I cannot tell you which areas are "bad." However, I can point you to informational sites where you can come to your own conclusions.

I am currently working with another great couple who is moving here from New Salem NY - which I believe they said was about an hour from Manhattan. I work the entire Middle TN area and we have actually gone out together and viewed numerous communities around Nashville. They have considered Wilson County which is Mt. Juliet and Lebanon, Sumner county which is Hendersonville, Williamson County, going from Brentwood, Franklin, Leipers Fork and even Thompson Station, and Rutherford County ending in Murfreesboro. After considering all the amenities, pros and cons, and location of each area, they have decided to relocate to Murfreesboro. They liked the hometown feeling, central location, and housing value that they got in Murfreesboro. There is also ample dining and shopping here as well.

Each community is completely different and you really need to visit to understand. It is hard to explain "hometown" or "neighborhood feeling" in writing. There are actually many great places to live in middle TN, all of which is considered to be the metro Nashville area. A lot is going to depend on your price point as well. Williamson County housing is going to require a much higher price point than Rutherford or Wilson.

Feel free to contact me via email or private message. I'll be happy to help as much as I can!

Good luck with your relocation!

I've never heard East Nashville described as a "transitioning" area.

I've heard the term "transitioning" used for East Nashville from many people, people who live there, real estate agents, people who used to live there. When I lived in Nashville, East Nashville was not someplace that people aspired to live in. But today, it is definitely up-and-coming and much more desirable than it was 10 years ago.

I think East Nashville is very much a transitioning area, and I would not hesitate to live there if I had the good fortune to live in Nashville again.
