Nashville Neighborhood Series: East Nashville


Like all major cities, Nashville has lots of interesting neighborhoods for homeowners to choose from when buying a home. Last week we focused on Nashville’s oldest neighborhood, Germantown. While Germantown is Nashville’s most historic neighborhood, East Nashville has become Nashville’s most well-known neighborhood. Thanks to a laid-back vibe and renewed interest in the area, East Nashville is now one of the most sought areas to live in Tennessee.

For Nashville homeowners looking to buy a home in East Nashville, here are some important facts:

  • It’s popular – By popular, we mean hip and only getting hipper. Artists, musicians, and young professional alike have been flocking here for over a decade. Recently, the area has seen an increase in families and retirees. All of which add to its immense appeal for diversity and eccentricity.
