First, congratulations on picking a very smart time to buy. Obviously, everyone here has given you a ton of info; so, I'll add a bit that hasn't been given yet.

"Safe areas" are all in they feeling/eyes of the resident. You can find all the crime stats at http://www.police.nashville.org/stats. Since you have articulated safety as your #1 priority and access to entertainment as #2, I'd recommend you start there first and see what areas beyond Nipper's Corner offer the lifestyle you want to have.

Your price point allows you to purchase a home or townhome in multiple areas (outside of the Nippers Corner area) including Sylvan Heights, Charlotte Park, Bellevue, Eatons Creek, Madison, Shelby Village, Inglewood, Maxwell Heights, Downtown Area (Spence Enclave), Donelson, Hermitage, Old Hickory, The Nations, Historic Buena Vista and Woodbine/Glenrose.

Also, note that there may be funds available to you through several housing agencies if you meet certain criteria, especially at this price point. The Housing Fund and Affordable Housing Resources have some great programs. They are NOT grants, but can certainly aid you in getting into the home.

If you are first time buyer, you will also see some tax credit through the new housing stimulus. Have fun on the search!

Hello! Please take a few moments to check out Rose Monte Nouveau. These modern, loft-style condos start in the $140s, have panoramic views of Downtown, Brentwood and Nolensville and are just moments from shopping, restaurants and entertainment.

Directions: From Nashville: I-65 South towards Brentwood, Exit #96
(Old Hickory Blvd.) and turn left. Follow for 4 miles. Turn right onto
Zermatt Ave. Drive to the top of the hill to see the breathtaking view!

Hi there, I have clients at Vanderbilt hospital. There are some great neighborhoods and also great condos downtown. The downtown is a new living lifestyle. I am well versed in both living styles as I have a home and a condo downtown. I will gladly compare and contrast them. I also have a great black book of contacts all dedicated as I am in making your homebuying process as stress-free as possible. My website is dedicated to answering your questions about the process. Please see http://www.totallynashville.com

I will be glad to answer any questions real estate related or not.

PS Have you eaten at the new Urban Flatbreads restaurant..its great.

Have a wonderful day

Hi J,

You have many good answers and I will just add that Nippers Corner is a great location for your price range
......and some of those are Villages of Brentwood, Huntington Ridge, Fredricksburg, and Brighton Village
( these are new and very desirable)....just sold one there and they are start ting a $139000 up to $180"s....townhouses are more that the condos, but these are nestled off Edmondson backing up to trees and a creek...Be sure to get representation and ask for concessions from the builder....Rosemonte has geared back up and selling like"hotcakes", but not started yet and a new concept with a contemporary vibe.

If you want to spread your area, check out Lenox Village, Shadow Glen, and Brentwood Trace....The best answer for you is that you must hunt diligently and study those areas for the best fit for you.....and if you need help, I also am available.....laurascott@realtracs.com

J - As you know, the Nippers Corner area is a very active community. Even though it is close to major thoroughfares it provides an inviting neighborhood environment. The inventory is strong in this area for townhomes and condominiums. Depending on your criteria and consideration of association fees, you should be able to find the right fit for you. (Criteria????: bedrooms #, fireplace #, etc.) Please contact me if I can assist you with your search. All the best!

Condos are your best bet in this price range but they are the most dangerous to purchase and own...Why? because someone else is telling you what you can and cant do with the monthly fee you pay to the association for management. A good condo has professional managment that has set aside lots of your monthly dues to pay for the inevitable new roofs, driveways, and general maintenance that must go on.....There is nothing like receiving a surprise $4,000.00 bill for a new roof...(and yes you must pay it or they can place a lein on your property). A well run condo has beautiful landscaping, clean driveways, halls, sidewalks, pools, tennis, etc....A well run condo has an active board of directors that takes serious interest in the place...
A poorly run condo looks run down, or giggy.... Also, a sign of a poorly run condo is the existance of the local "condo nazi". These dear people take it upon themselves as a homeowner, to rule all aspects of your life......they are self proclaimed "King of the Condo". They pretty much dictate to everyone what they will do and how they will do it while in residence....(sounds hilarious...but believe me..its not). Property values will drop slowly but surely as people choose to move on.. A strong condo association wont put up with that. Further, do your due dilligence!! or hire a realtor that knows condos and the pitfalls that exist....
One other tip, always interview your immediate neighbors before signing on the dotted line....Moving in to next door to Atilla the Hun or a boatload of party girls...can really mess with your happiness....

There is a great listing in your price range in that area if you don't mind fixing it up a little - or there are plenty of townhouses over there as well. There are many Realtors who would be able to help you out and if you don't have a home to sell, then you are definitely "sitting in the catbird seat!"

Make a sound investment and have fun while selecting!

Let me know if I can help...
