Default Best Suburbs Around Nashville, TN?

My husband and I are planning on moving to the Nashville, TN area. All of our children are grown, so schools are not an issue. My husband will be working out of the home and I will most likely be commuting to downtown Nashville, so where would you recommend we look for a nice (newer), reasonably-priced (around $150,000) home, quiet community with an easy (around 30 mins) commute?
Thank you for any and all suggestions/advice!

Hi Karmaya,

My wife and I recently moved from Fort Myers, Florida to a small town right out side of Nashville called Fairview. Fairview is in beautiful Williamson County which is the most affluent county in the state. Fairview still has real estate that is still very affordable even though it is in the richest county. It takes about 25 to 30 minutes to get in to downtown Nashville. If you need any more information please just ask.

Williamson County hands down. Great towns, great schools. Franklin is growing at an enormous rate.

Is there anything in Antioch that is under 400K with a waterview?

Antioch looks a tiny bit inaccessible if you want to go anywhere
but downtown or out toward murfreesboro

I don't even think the people who live in Antioch like living there.

Default Re: williamson co.

[quote=davesmyers]Ok, so it is "growing fast."

Does that mean most of the housing is new, monstrous, and overpriced, or
does that mean that the community is coming into its own?



I'm afraid you got it right the first time, Dave.

Will it suck in ten years?
I don't appreciate the rudeness of your post.

Housing is much cheaper then up north and I wouldn't say they are overpriced. The county is wealthy so yes a lot of the houses are large but most are well under $400k and it's much nicer then Antioch which is a dump. I wouldn't raise my children there if I was paid.

Williamson, specifically Franklin, has grown in leaps and bounds over the past 10 years. Franklin has about 50,000 people but it's a great city. It has a just about any store you could need and a nice mall. Nashville is only a short drive away.

It was a genuine question, not a smear.
I don't know the area. Yet. Shrug.
