Smyrna’s proximity to both Nashville and Murfreesboro makes it an ideal location for living or for strategic real estate investment. The addition of approximately 15,000 people over the past decade has contributed to a steady rise in new construction and property values. As new employers move into the area, housing in Smyrna becomes more and more desirable. Much of it is highly affordable, too. You can still find a two or three-bedroom red brick home in Hickory Trace and Highland Park for under $1,000/mo. Higher priced estates can be found in Jefferson Square, The Oaks, and Cedar Forest. These range anywhere from $1,500/mo to $3,200/mo. The Smyrna rental property market also offers a wide range of townhouses and condos at prices of $800/mo to $1,500/mo.
