It’s always easier and more efficient to get the job done when you have the right tools. This could not be more true when buying a house and navigating Nashville’s real estate landscape. To make life a little easier, we’ve listed 5 tools that we think will be a huge help when you start shopping for your next home.
1. Nashville Development Tracker
This website is run by the Nashville Planning Department. It is a great resource to view information about new zoning, subdivisions, overlay districts under review and community plans. If you want to know what’s potentially going to be built near the home that you’re looking to buy, then this is a great place to start.
2. Nashville Zip Code Map
Nashville has a lot of great little pockets and neighborhoods, but sometimes it’s hard to remember what zip code they’re in. So we decided to make things a little bit easier and create an interactive zip code map that helps you easily locate an area and search all the homes for sale in that zip code with the click of a button.
3. Nashville Public School Zone Finder
While this site may seem a little outdated, the information is not. We always tell our clients to verify a home’s school district, because they can and do change over time. You can also search for future zoning, so there’s no surprises. Take two seconds to double check the info on this site and save yourself any unnecessary headaches.
4. Nashville Home Wish List
With homes moving as fast as they are in Nashville, you can’t afford to waste time looking at properties that don’t fit your criteria or that are already under contract. For this reason, we created a “Home Wish List.” It’s a direct feed from the MLS that alerts you as soon as properties hit the market that match your exact criteria. You also won’t miss out on newly listed properties that show up on Zillow or Trulia up to 24 hours later.
5. Lifestyle by Zip Code
This is a great tool that provides demographic information by simply typing in a zip code. From what I can tell, they are fairly accurate for what you should expect to find in each area. This is a perfect compliment to your home search to make sure you find a home in an area that fits your lifestyle.
