As Nashville continues to boom and real estate with it, areas that once were not heavily occupied are beginning to fill up. The Nations is one of those neighborhoods that has seen a massive influx of residents in recent years, and is now considered one of the hottest neighborhoods in Nashville. Located on the west side of the city between I-40 and the Cumberland River, this vibrant and hip neighborhood is a short drive to downtown, putting it in a highly desirable location. The Nations gets its name from The Chickasaw Nations of Native Americans that occupied this area in the eighteenth century, though most of the streets now are named after the 50 states.
Young families and young singles alike are attracted to The Nations due to the trendy eateries, boutiques, and bars that line the streets. As with all of the up and coming Nashville neighborhoods, home values continue to rise in the area as it grows in popularity. Many of the homes in The Nations are considered to be “tall and skinnies” by locals- they are narrow with the square footage manifesting itself vertically rather than horizontally, and typically two of these homes exist per lot. They are mixed amongst older historic homes, creating a unique blend of old and new. Townhomes and condos continue to be developed in the area, and serve as a great option for more budget-conscious buyers. The current median sales price for The Nations is $475,000 with and average sales price of about $497,000.
” The Nations has been a great place for us to put down roots in Nashville, especially as we had our first child. We live close to everything we need, but the area still feels like a neighborhood. As The Nations grows, it only becomes more welcoming with added food options, shopping, and recreation. We love our Nations home and our little slice of Nashville “
