Lindsay, You can look at these to get some comparable sources of information....


Housing trends/info, crime statistics, schools ect.. all from public records. Can break down into neighborhoods/zip codes...

This interactive map from Trulia is full of info and is easy to use..

Good luck, Dunes

Franklin is larger than Nolensville, and, therefore, has a lot more things to do. For example, the Galleria Mall is right near Franklin. Franklin also offers a historical, small town feel, with a close-knit community and frequent town festivals.

Both Brentwood and Franklin are more "luxury" areas, with higher home prices, but you can get more bang for your buck in Nolensville.

I think it depends a lot on your budget, and how close you'd like to be to amenities, such as shopping malls, downtown Nashville, etc.

Best of luck to you!

Hi Lindsay,

Nolensville is trending as a very popular place to live outside Nashville. Location is definitely what makes Nolensville so attractive. I moved here 8 months ago from Destin, Florida and have to admit I knew nothing about Nashville or the surrounding communities. My wife and I have found that the people of TN are great people and some of the kindest people on Earth!

I'd be more than glad to assist you in your search in the Nashville community. I look forward to your call, email or text.

My best,
Ryan Jones

Hi Lindsay, It's great that you're looking to move to Middle Tennessee. Nolensville borders Brentwood, but it's a little further East. In the middle of Brentwood and Franklin you have access to Interstate 65, which will take you into the heart of Nashville when going North. In the middle of Franklin right along I-65, you have the Cool Springs area which has just about every shop and restaurant you can think of. Franklin also has the historic Downtown area, which offers more local-charm. Part of Cool Springs is technically in Brentwood, but there is a small downtown area in Brentwood as well that has a decent selection of shopping, restaurants and activities. Brentwood and Franklin are also quite sizable business districts (Brentwood is HQ to many companies including Tractor Supply, LifePoint Hospitals, etc. with Franklin being HQ to Nissan North America, Community Health Systems and a host of others.)

Nolensville is growing and has quite a few new developments, but it doesn't contain the business and commerce like Brentwood and Franklin. If your neighborhood is near the newer section of Nolensville, you'll have access to a small handful of restaurants, a couple of grocery stores and a handful of shops. Nolensville is a little removed from Interstate access, but depending on where you are might get you closer to I-24. So I would consider much Nolensville to be country living within an actual neighborhood community.

You do have the shared Williamson County schools in most of Nolensville with Brentwood and Franklin. Although you need to check the county for each area separately as there are parts in Davidson County as well. For the most part, you will be able to get more house for your money in Nolensville, but the home prices are becoming a little more competitive.

Hello Lindsay,

I would like to invite you to visit my website where you can both search current listings, as well as research information about what Nolensville has to offer. Over the past few years, about 80% of my clients have been those looking to relocate to the middle Tennessee area from other parts of the United States and Canada, so I'm very familiar with the process of dealing with out of state buyers. While on my site, I would recommend you visit my testimonials page as well as the "Community Info and Links " page as well. I would be happy to address any concerns or questions you may have at any time.
Thank you,
Bob Trewyn

Lindsay, thank you for the question and please let me know what additional questions pop up for you along the way. Nolensville is very comparable in the way of school rankings, part of the same district - Williamson County Schools. This is the highest regarded school system in our region. Nolensville is much smaller and feels much more rural than most of Brentwood and Franklin, but has relatively quick access to both these areas and the newer section of Franklin called Cool Springs - a very desirable and convenient area for shopping, etc.

Home prices reflect this distance (+15 minutes), but have been going up over the past decade due to newer neighborhoods being built in the community. This year there is a chance to see some of the homes at a reduced rate (if only a little as the desirable school system has kept them moving well).

So that I can help you examine Nolensville vs Franklin/Brentwood better, what are you looking for in your next home Lindsay?
