My wife and I are moving from Indiana to the Nashville area this fall. We are both in our mid to later 30's, 3 children ages 2, 4 and 7. Any advice on what areas have the better schools, lower crime rate, small town feel but in the metro area. We have considered Ridgetop, Hermitage, Hendersonville and Smyrna. Any advice? How rough is East Nashville? Wrong area to raise childern? Thanks.

Hi, you might consider Nolensville as there are many new houses and condos going up at good prices. The area is in Williamson County which has great schools for younger children. Nolensville is very close to where I live, but less pricy and a real small town feel. I don't know what type of budget you are working on or where you will be working. I live in Nashville on the Brentwood Border, but I am told that the elementary schools are not that great here. My daughter is a HS senior and the HS is fine.We just moved here in July and next year she will be going to MTSU. I'm in Davidson County where the taxes are a bit higher than Williamson. If you can be out a little way from Nashville, you could try Springhill, also in Williamson County.In Williamson county you will find the better schools.
Smyrna is ok, but mostly older homes. Hendersonville is very nice, but can be pricier and I would pick Brentwood or Franklin vs Hendersonville since north of the city is more in the Tornado belt.
East Nashville, I don't think so, but not familar with that part of town.
I do have a great realtor if you want to email me. She sold me my home. She works for one of Nashville's oldest real Estates.
My email address is iv18@aol.com
Good Luck in your move.

Some parts of East Nashville are ok. But stay away from Greenwood Avenue area, or the Howe Garden Apartments. This complex is run by slum lords so go figure. Very high crime area.

Lockland area is nice. Nashville is not a very safe place to be moving to, if you can try to locate in Hendersonville.

Murfreesboro is less Pricy. You can get a lot for your money. The roads there are crowded as there is lots of shopping.
It's also home to a large State University, Middle Tennesssee State U, where my daughter will be going to in the fall.

Fairview is up and coming. Some of the Nissian Relocations from California decided to move there. Not crowded at all, its the country.

Being a Franklin, TN native and now a Nashville resident and TN Realtor I can tell you that any part of this city and the surrounding ones are great for raising a family and life in general. You can go to www.schoolsk-12.com for report cards on schools in TN and you will find that they are very reputable in Williamson county and various other locations. Nashville has been rated in the top 10 places to live nationally in several publications and political forums. I would love to help you in your relocation. You can visit my website www.NashvilleConnected.com for more information on me. Good Luck no matter where your journey leads you!

Try looking into the Brush Hill area of East Nashville - a quiet, tucked-away neighborhood only minutes from downtown.

All the best!

East nashville is a horrible place to raise children. Smyrna is a GREAT place to live.

Of those areas you named, Hermitage is nice. It's not too far out. There's easy access to Downtown straight up Lebanon Pike. There's good shopping. Nice houses. It's an older area of town, but home values have stayed pretty steady out there. As far as schools go, most of the schools are pretty fair. But no matter where you live, you could always apply to get into one of the Optional schools. Nashville has a couple of the best Optional and Magnet schools in the country. Pennington Elementary in Donelson seems to be a pretty nice school. And Glendale Spanish Immersion School is a very good elementary school, if you can get your kids in. As your kids get older, Meigs and Head Magnet are great middle schools, and Hume Fogg Magnet High School in Downtown was ranked in the Top 30 high schools in the country last year.

I will be moving to the Nashville area in the next few weeks. I have visited Nashville multiple times, but am not very familiar w/ the different neighborhoods. I am in my 20's and on a tighter budget, but would like to live somewhere safe and convenient to everything. My fiance will be working downtown, and I currently do not know what part of town I will be working in so a slightly more central location may be necessary. We have been looking at apts and duplexes/townhomes, but will most likely end up in an apt at first. Any suggestions on apartments and neighborhoods would be greatly appreciated.

No! East Nashville is not a terrible place to raise children. I grew up there and have experienced all the school systems there. This is actually a quite expensive place to live in. Take it from some one who have lived there his whole life. Not some one who listens to the crap they hear on the news. Houses are selling for $1,000,000 over here. We're about to sell ours for $600,000.
