➺ How to Choose the Right Neighborhood


How many decisions do you think the average person makes in a day? 50? 100? 1000? Sometimes the decisions are as simple as where to have dinner (link to family style post or new restaurant openings post). Other times the decisions are much more life changing, like “what’s our budget for a new home?” or “where should we live?” As important as it is, choosing a neighborhood to buy your next home in should not be a stressful decision. We’ve made a list of factors to consider to help guide you in how to choose your next community.

Is the neighborhood safe? Is it a high crime area? Do you value a gated community? Is it a higher traffic area with commercial properties or more residential? See which Nashville neighborhoods are safest!

How close is it to where you work? Is it a remote location or is it relatively close to the grocery store, bank, gym, and places you visit on a regular basis?

A very important factor for many! Will your kids have to change schools? Or if you don’t have kids yet, is this a school zone you would want to send your children to? Find out more about Nashville area school districts.

Are you in the same county as your currently live or will you be in a new county? Is there a benefit to staying in your county or will you receive more benefits from changing counties? Remember different counties may have different tax rates. Something else you may want to be aware of is who your local government district council members and representatives are and what kind of work they’re doing for your new community.

Are you getting the most bang for your buck? Could this be the next potential “it” neighborhood where you can sell your property for significantly more than what you bought it for? Or are you planning to stick around for the long haul no matter what happens?

➺ Living in Woodbine


Woodbine is turning into a buzzword in Nashville, but how much do you really know about this neighborhood on the rise? Allow us to introduce you! Here’s what to eat, see, and do, and why you might choose this location for your next Nashville home.

Woodbine is located in South Nashville, reaching from I-440 to beyond Thompson Lane and centered around Nolensville Road.


This area of town is known for it’s diversity in food options: authentic Mexican food, Turkish, Indian, Chinese, you name it. You may just end up finding your favorite hole in the wall restaurant in this part of town! Mixed Grill Café or the burgers and full bar at Twin Kegs are just some of our favorites, plus several others that are so old school they don’t even have websites, so you’ll just have to stop in! New Nashville, meet old Nashville.

If you’re looking for some caffeine or a solid crepe, look no further than Red Bicycle Coffee Shop. This is one of two locations in Nashville, and you can’t go wrong with any of their 40 crepe options! If you like your flavored lattes like we do, try the Honey Miel.



The great thing about Woodbine is that you are a very short drive (or a $5 Uber ride) from downtown. If you want to stay close, there are several antique stores, pawnshops, and local storefronts where you can spend your afternoon. We’ve been known to find some great furniture and home décor at Southeastern Salvage and Nashville Pickers, to name a few. Just down the street is the Nashville Zoo! Check out their special events or just spend the day visiting with the animals.

Woodbine is a part of Nashville that hasn’t boomed to peak popularity yet like The Gulch or 12 South, so homeowners can get more bang for their buck. By that we mean a bigger yard and more square footage for less money. With the rising prices and competition for home sales in Nashville, that makes Woodbine a hot commodity!

Homes are going fast in Woodbine! Here’s what’s available now. There’s a renovated 2 bedroom, 1 bathroom home with 1308 square feet listed at $235,000; a new 3 bed 2.5 bath home with 1399 square feet listed at $249,000; a renovated 3 bed 2 bath home with 1440 square feet listed at $289,900; a new 3 bed 2 bath with 1589 square feet listed at $319,900; 2 versions of new 3 bed 2.5 bath homes both with 1844 square feet on 0.29 acres listed at $349,900.
