Nashville Neighborhood Series: Germantown


As Nashville grows and changes, so do the neighborhoods that make up Music City. Since so many people continue to move to Nashville from other areas, we thought it would be fun to highlight some of the Nashville neighborhood areas that are most sought after. This week, we are starting with Germantown.

A fun fact about Germantown is that it is Nashville’s oldest neighborhood. In fact, it was the first area where a large population settled down. This first group of settlers were German, which is why Germantown has its name now.

For Nashville homebuyers there are a few key factors to consider when looking at homes in Germantown:

  • It’s small – By small, we mean tiny. Germantown is really only about 18 blocks! The pros to this are that the area has a fabulous tight-knit feel. Expect to know your neighbors here.
  • It’s busy – Despite it’s small size, Germantown is loaded with activity. There are a number of small businesses in the community and a lot of restaurants and shops.
  • It’s REALLY convenient for downtown Nashville – From Germantown, residents can walk to nearly all the downtown bars and restaurants in Nashville. Plus, the Farmer’s Market is there and the new Sounds Stadium. All pros for those who prefer traveling by foot for their entertainment.
  • Housing can be tough to find – While there are apartments, condos and single-family homes all in the Germantown area, finding one available is hard. Prices tend to be pretty high in this area as well.

Overall, Germantown is an incredible Nashville neighborhood that offers a nicely diverse community and loads of amenities. Finding a house for sale in Germantown can be tricky so it’s wise to act quickly if one pops up!
