    We’re standing at the start of a new year, so a lot of us are doing that thing we do around this time: thinking about the changes we’ll try to embrace, the new experiences we’ll chase and other related bits of new-year newness.

    There’s nothing wrong with wanting to turn the calendar page and shift attention toward fresh goals and challenges, even if we don’t always nail those intentions. But if 2016 is the year you hope to reach a goal of homeownership, we’d love to help you keep that resolution.

    First-time homeownership can be intimidating and overwhelming, but it doesn’t have to be — if you surround yourself with a solid team, you’ll get help every step of the way, and good advice toward finding (and closing on) a home that suits your start as a homeowner. We work with first-time buyers all the time, and helping to make the dream of homeownership happen is one of our favorite parts of what we do.

    Call or email us if you want to talk more about finding and buying your first home. For a research head start, we’ve collected some homes on the market that could be great bets for first-time buyers.

    In 2015, the median home price in Davidson County was around $200K, so we chose listings that hovered around that price. Although home prices have been rising consistently in Nashville, there are still pockets where you can find a great first property. Take a look:

    Lenox Village is a cute community south of downtown that offers close proximity to lots of restaurants and shops, and opportunities for a lot of nice, well-kept home for the money. This 3-bed, 2 1/2-bath townhouse offers upscale finishes on a first-time-buyer budget, and will definitely appeal to buyers who want to stay low on the yardwork, high on the community feel.

    Woodbine is another area that’s poised for big growth in 2016, but right now, there are still first-time-buyer-friendly gems to be found. This 3-bed, 2-bath mid-century home is totally renovated, with beautifully updated kitchen and bathroom details, and it’s still priced well under $250K.

    If you love a mid-century ranch, the Crieve Hall/Caldwell-Abbay Hall area is a welcoming, family-friendly part of town with lots of them, many of which fall under the average first-time buyer budget. This one, with almost 1,500 square feet of space, is well-maintained and has lots of smart updates — if it was your starter home, you’d be off to a cute and cozy start, for sure.

    A lot of changes are coming to the Bellevue area in the new year, but one thing that’s still around: cute homes in established neighborhoods at first-time-buyer-friendly budgets. This 1969 ranch has great curb appeal, and a lot of space (2100 square feet). It’s also totally move-in ready, but some smart updates down the line could make it that much more appealing.
