John Burke answered your question incredibly thoroughly- kudos, John! Most of Gallatin isn't eligible for the USDA mortgage, and though as he demonstrates, select properties can be found near that area which ARE, it's a rare occurrence.

There are a lot of great new subdivisions in Brentwood/Franklin. Which ones are for you depends on what price point, size of yard, and home. The schools are all great. If you provide me what size home and price point, I will be happy to narrow the list for you..
You can reply to this post through Trulia, or directly to me at Kristen@FromHereToClose.com.
