MOVING TO NASHVILLE, TENNESSEE

Nashville is known to serve people amazing food, Mexican cuisine in particular, and beer of course. With quite a few good neighborhoods like Downtown Nashville, Music Row, The Gulch, Brentwood, etc it’s a good place for a peaceful and smoothly running lifestyle.

If there’s one thing that Nashville, Tennessee is known for, it’s probably country music. But you’d be (pleasantly) surprised to learn how much music city has to offer even if you don’t have a single country bone in your body.  So if you’re considering moving to Nashville, you’ll be settling into a new home that has an exploding craft beer scene, some of the best (and free) live music in the country, and a rapidly growing job market.

Rent is, of course, vary based on what area of Nashville you want to live in, what amenities you want to have in your apartment, and what your price range is there. So you get an idea if you’re wanting a luxury apartment in, let’s say, downtown Nashville, that’s going to cost you anywhere from 15 to 17 hundred for a one-bedroom. So luxury apartments outside of downtown Nashville are going to vary from anywhere around twelve hundred to about fifteen hundred for a one-bedroom luxury apartment. And then, of course, you can also find apartments that are not luxury apartments that are like a little bit older, anywhere from eight fifty to about a thousand outside of the city, in the suburbs and then closer into the city.
