You’ve heard the rumors; it’s a “Seller’s Market.” Well if you are actively searching for a new home in Williamson County, Tennessee, you know that it’s true. The low inventory of homes for sale has made things difficult for buyers. There just aren’t many homes for sale out there and when a nice listing does come to market, it’s met with multiple offers…..often with offer prices over list.

Williamson County is located just south of Nashville, TN. While residents number just over 200,000, the area has maintained its small-town feel and friendly atmosphere. Considered one of the most desirable suburban areas, Williamson County is home to high-performing schools, wide variety of recreational facilities, world-class restaurants and shopping and a strong business climate.

With a low 2.7 % unemployment rate, Middle Tennessee is attracting a growing number of expanding or relocating corporations. As a result, executives are moving to Franklin and Brentwood in increasing numbers fueling the luxury home market. Homes priced over $1 million are becoming common place and it’s pulling the average home value higher along with it.

Williamson County dates back to Pre-Civil War days. Founded in 1799 as part of the Western expansion era, the county seat of Franklin was laid out in 1800. The area’s natural resources such as timber and rich soil immediately became a popular location for families moving West. During the Civil War, Brentwood and Franklin saw battles which had some of the highest fatalities of the war.

Now Williamson County communities top America’s best small towns each year. Historical Franklin hosts a series of festivals and events which residents and visitors alike look forward to each year. Year round, the Downtown Franklin Association presents the Franklin Art Scene. This free event celebrates local craftsmanship and includes dozens of sites of galleries, working studios, live music and sites listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Complimentary refreshments are provided by many of the participants. This event takes place on the first Friday of each month.
