Williamson County Real Estate: Tennessee: Franklin: Cheekwood

It's not the best market for downsizing - If you are paying cash

Nashville real estate - In the last few days I've met several people who have had an interest in my listing at 204 cheekwood ct. The primary reason for their interest is that all of the bedrooms are downstairs, and they are getting to the age that stairs are no longer welcome exercise. When they tell me that they need to sell their 2 story home that's 50 percent bigger, I have some bad news.

  1. 2 story homes in Nashville are now out of favor for most people
  2. it's a buyers market, and the buyers of large homes in Nashville have a large advantage
  3. Because single story homes are now in demand, they sell faster than 2 story homes, so the price is not as favorable for Nashville buyers, even in this market.
  4. Single story Nashville homes have a large envelope, and require a larger lot than 2 story homes. When looking at new homes, consider that builders charge more for these homes compared to 2 story homes because they are usually more costly to build.

 If you want a Nashville home with bedrooms on the main floor, expect to pay more for it than a home with all of the bedrooms upstairs. Exceptions are rare.
