Nashville Homes Are Selling Below Market Value, and It’s a Good Thing

According to Mashvisor, Nashville homes are under-priced by 7%, a staggering amount for buyers and investors hoping to tap into competitive real estate markets. While that might inspire fears of a failing market, a new report form Arch Mortgage Insurance company claims that “Nashville is one of America’s 10 hottest housing markets, when looking at the country’s 100 biggest metros.”

So what does this mean? For investors, it’s a great time to swoop in and buy rental properties. According to developer Bruce McNeilage, “Every one of the [major investment companies] has identified Nashville, and they are going into Nashville… there is an unlimited demand and the demand simply can’t get met.” Buying now, when home prices are low, represents a serious opportunity to maximize ROI.
