The Cost of Living in Rural Tennessee: Can You Afford a Home With Land?

A popular request from our clients moving from California to Tennessee is always a home with land. Most people think they will come to Tennessee and get a house with a lot of land for not a lot of money. This is a common misconception about Middle Tennessee. While some areas may be considered "affordable" to many, trying to get a home with land in Nashville can be costly.

So, if you're considering a move to a more rural area of Tennessee, research the cost of living in different neighborhoods and work with a real estate agent to find a home that fits your budget. With careful planning and a little research, you can find an affordable home with land in rural Tennessee and enjoy all this beautiful state has to offer.

I thought it would be helpful to pull up the city's surrounding areas to see the average price point for a home that rests on one or more acres that have sold in the past three months. Check out these numbers, and let me know if you have questions!
