Spring Hill Tn - with only one vote opposing, the mayor and board of aldermen approved the use of 6000 square ft lots for residential homes in Spring Hill. The previous minimum for residential homes was 8000 square ft. The intention is to allow builders to build more affordable homes.
As a realtor who is concerned about property values in Spring Hill, I think this is the opposite direction from where the city should be headed. If you add a few apartment complexes to the city, it will begin to have the same look and feel as Antioch did 10 years ago.
What the mayor calls affordable housing is just another word for cheap. I don't believe that anyone who bought a home in Spring Hill in the last 5 years would have moved here if they had know what the polical powers in charge were planing to do. And maybe that's one reason that buyers are reluctant to invest in Spring Hill Real Estate.
