Matthew Magallanes answered:
The average American will move 11.3 times in their lifetime. The prime moving years for homes in the price range are from the ages of 35 to 60 years old. There will be 6.8 moves per average in this time frame in Williamson County. Another way to look at that is about a move every 5 years. With 1600 occupied homes and adjusting for the move-in phase, that will eventually average out to about 300 homes for resale per year. It is simply math. It is only the size of the community that makes it appear there are a higher number of home sales per capita. Several posts above have also hit on the fact of with so much different product in the community resales include moves within Westhaven. With homes prices from the 300K to the 2MM price range, there are many move-ups an downsizes in the community due to family changes and age. There are also townhomes and condos. Statistically, it appears that since the expected number of home sales is under the anticipated average, the resale activity is considerably lower than expected, and the homes sell fast. The community retention is high. Concerns about commute time to I-65, which has been exaggerated, is mitigated by the high number of at-home business, access to jobs in Cool Springs, and the substantial lack of day-trips for daily needs shopping, schools and entertainment. The total number of miles driven per resident family is lower than average, as evidenced by the traffic studies on HWY 96 showing greatly lower-than-expected exiting car traffic from Westhaven during peak travel times and during the day. ... more

Absolutely do not hire her, but be very careful. She may have 'friends' posing as buyers making low offers on your home - you may feel pressure to underprice your home.

Bothers me, too! Our agent in Lawrenceburg came in with the cheap camera, took low quality photos, refused to type up a description above a certain number of lines (now I know that's wrong!), refused to text, didn't advise, often wouldn't return calls or respond to emails, didn't advise other agents showing the place on what they were showing, ended up having her assistant talk to us all the time. This was the top-ranked rea in town - couldn't BELIEVE how little she cared!!!

Well, I did an FSBO and got my home sold right away! Lawrenceburg is a nice place, but the agents are cheap!

Hi Jenbeat!

Yes, it is possible to find something in the $250 - $350K range in Franklin for a 3 bedroom, small but updated home with community pool.

This ideally, could be a condo situation with amenities. Westhaven is very nice but the elementary and middle schools are quite far away so that is viewed as a potential negative. There are plenty of great condo locales. Franklin, (Williamson County)TN has wonderful schools, good teacher/student ratios, very positive lifestyles.

Feel free to contact me for active listings. I will be glad to assist you finding the perfect home!

it means there is ratified contract to purchase in place with contingencies - home inspection, appraisal, financing, radon inspection, sale of buyers current property are some example contingencies.

it's possible the sellers would entertain a back up offer. contact your agent or the listing agent and ask if it's available to view.

Franklin as a whole is a fantastic area. It's definitely the "place to be" and is full of luxury neighborhoods. Many of the country music stars live in this area. The historic town is fantastic, with great little shops, and there is always something to do. There is a festival nearly every weekend, it seems! There are also fantastic restaurants, and the Cool Springs Galleria Mall. Plus, it's only about 25-30 minutes from downtown Nashville. Here are some thoughts about the three communities you mentioned:

Fieldstone Farms: There are a definitely a lot of things to do right within this community. There are schools, banks, parks, grocery stores, pharmacies and restaurants right inside the neighborhood. It's a master-planned community with excellent HOA associations. It's very close-knit, with swim teams, tennis teams, socials, and community yard sales. It's definitely a great place if you're active and involved.

River Landings: This community is a good deal smaller than Fieldstone Farms, with about 200 homes. They're larger (between 3000 and 6000 sq. feet) with good-sized yards. There are 125 acres of passive green space, bike trails and (for an extra fee), access to the Legends Ridge pool. It's close to downtown Franklin and the Cool Springs Galleria.

Legends Ridge: The view are just spectacular from these homes. This community boasts of lakes, walking trails and fantastic sledding hills. It has easy access to the highway and is close to shopping, restaurants, grocery stores, malls, etc. They have great annual events, like hay rides, parades and pool parties.

I would say that you couldn't go wrong with any of them -- it just depends on what you're looking for. Talking to some of the people that live in the neighborhood might be a good idea to get the opinion of locals.

If you need help with anything, please get in touch!

McKay's Mill is an excellent community. Franklin is certainly the place to be right now!

It has a ton of amenities, including workout facilities, a huge pool, walking trails, tennis courts, a basketball court, playgrounds, etc. and is extremely close to Cool Springs Galleria, as well as other businesses.

The yards are a bit smaller than some others, but the you can get more square footage for you money. The location is also fantastic, with lots of businesses, grocery stores and shopping close by.

If you're looking for a realtor, feel free to check out my site, and get in touch.

Best of luck!

OK, Franklin is almost 2 hours north of Huntsville, and it is extremely overpopulated and crowded and EXPENSIVE. A lot of country music stars live there and around Leiper's Fork -that didn't help keep prices down. Franklin is getting almost as bad and overpopulated and 'trafficky' as Nashville. Even Spring Hill and Columbia south of Franklin are getting crowded. Why go that far north?

You did not mention that you need peace and quiet and affordability, but I suspect most people do - I know I do - and am glad to live outside Lawrenceburg where it is beautiful and affordable and a little closer (and you have friendly, hardworking Amish neighbors in Ethridge - great education for your children).

Still, you want a Tennessee town close to the Alabama border. Pulaski is close to i-65 and Ardmore is even closer as is Fayetteville. I've been through those towns going to Huntsville often and they are nice drives. I like Huntsville! Like it better than Franklin! So why Franklin? Save your money and pick a quieter, more affordable area!

Yes, there are quite a few horse boarding facilities near the Westhaven area, in Franklin, TN. As usual, the pricing does vary quite a bit, but I feel confident that you'll be able to find something within a reasonable price range.

Let me know if you have any other questions!
