The recent piece in The Tennessean about the soaring demand for condos in Nashville probably didn’t come as a surprise to too many hopeful Middle Tennessee homebuyers. New communities are still steadily popping up across Nashville, and even as the supply grows, units — particularly in the first-time-buyer-budget price range — tend to go pretty fast.
Among the reasons behind the current condo popularity, according to the Tennessean piece: amenities, affordability and ease of ownership — the latter especially for musicians and other creative professionals who travel steadily.
The ease of having a condo association on upkeep and maintenance: definitely a big plus. Affordability, on the other hand, continues to be more of a challenge, especially in neighborhoods closer to downtown Nashville, where per-square-foot prices can easily soar between $400 and $600.
The Nashville condo landscape in 2017 is definitely hopping, and definitely varied, and with that, it can be a bit interesting to navigate. For a bit of a bird’s eye view, we picked out some properties on the market now that span across a mix of needs, from approachable pricing to amazing amenities. Take a look through below:
803 Hillview Hts # 102
Nashville, TN 37204
This Melrose-area condo isn’t really going to comfortably fit a family, at 420 square feet. But for a single person or couple — especially steady travelers who might like to Airbnb their place while they’re gone — it could be a perfect fit, with updated finishes and an asking price well under $200K. (The HOA fees are under $150, too.)
Easy commute, high-end details, affordability
4325 Ashland City Highway, #2
Nashville, TN 37218
The brand-new Ashland Place community includes townhomes, not condos, but the homes cross off a lot of what’s on the average Nashville condo-hunter’s list: convenient Nashville location, affordable price point, and avoidance of yardwork. With these homes, you’re also getting the benefit of a brand new property with high-end details (stone, stainless, hardwoods, etc.), starting at just over $200K. Even units suitable for growing families have approachable asking prices — like this 3-bed, 3-bath, 1712-square-foot home listed at under $250K. (We’re listing Ashland Place homes, and we’d be glad to tell you more/show you around; just reach out.)
Historic charm and nightlife
1400 Rosa L Parks Blvd Apt 318
Nashville, TN 37208
Germantown is one of the most walkable communities in Nashville, well-suited for buyers who want quick access to dining and shopping. And the circa-1871 Werthan Mills building is one of Nashville’s coolest historic structures, its loft spaces filled with details like exposed brick and original hardwoods. So if busy nightlife and historic charm are both high on your list…
Location and luxury
3000 Poston Avenue 101
Nashville, TN 37203
The Poston at the Park is a smaller building, with only 27 high-end condos in a spectacular Nashville location, literally steps from Centennial Park and shouting distance from Vanderbilt. The details in all the units, like this one, are total luxury, from private balconies and floor-to-ceiling windows to custom tile work, natural hardwoods and stone countertops.
East Nashville access
2115 Yeaman Place, #320
Nashville, TN 37206
Contemporary condo community 5th & Main puts you right between downtown and the center of East Nashville, so you’re a quick shot to eating and drinking in 5 Points and/or seeing shows at downtown spots like The Ryman. (Steps from the stadium too.) Some valuable amenities come along with the 1-bed, 1-bath unit, too, like an onsite dog park and rooftop terrace.
600 12Th Ave S Unit #403
Nashville, TN 37203
Gulch residents expect (and by and large enjoy) a full spate of amenities, but even among the creative crop of condo buildings there, the Icon’s amenities stand out. It’s not just that the building has a two-story clubhouse and picturesque roof deck, two sparkling pools, two high-end fitness centers — it’s that every detail in those spaces makes you feel like you’re in a world-class hotel.
