One-quarter of first-time buyers are single females who purchased their first home on a median income of $44,500*. In a recent report released by the Nashville Downtown Partnership, females make up 50% of our downtown residents. That’s up 5% over the previous year and the numbers continue to grow.
I am fortunate to call many of these women my clients. They are bright, intellectual, focused and decisive individuals eager to invest in themselves and excited to find a place to call home (what more could a Realtor ask for?). As a result, there is a very diverse group of urban pioneer women living Downtown in Nashville. Together, they are building a strong community in the heart of our city. It’s about time, right?
Do you have lofty dreams of a cool city dwelling? Would you like to get to know some of these women who have already taken the plunge to see what it’s really like? I’m planning a mixer soon just for city girls. If you would like to join us, send me an email – I would love for you to meet your future neighbors.
Despite all the media hub-bub about rates and foreclosures, this is a great time to buy! There is a lot of inventory on the market: YES! But with all the competition for sellers, buyers have the upper hand! Just the other morning CNBC’S Jim Cramer, the eternal pessimist about housing, said, "BUY NOW!" Cramer went on to say, "I was the first guy that said torch your house for the insurance money (8 months ago). I am now telling you that between now and the next six months you have to buy a house." Did you know there are at least 100 condos for sale in and around Downtown right now for under $200,000?! If you act now, you can get a great deal. With the right Realtor on your side, this process can be seamless! At Village Downtown you have a CityLiving Team of knowledgeable Realtors to lean on. Let us know how we can help.
