We love it here and we think you will too.  There are endless reasons to relocate to the Nashville area, but here is our top ten!


10. Cost of Living

Three percent below the national average, you can get more bang for your buck. Enjoy all the amenities of a big city, but you’re never too far from the country either.  Get around town and have money to participate in all the city has to offer.


9. Get Cultured

Of course, Nashville is known for country music, but you can expand your horizons by exploring any of the 30 museums, 13 colleges and universities, or 100 parks in the metro area.  Just as an example, The Parthenon is located within walking distance of Vanderbilt University.  You can explore architecture and design as a pregame to watching the commodores play on the field or the court.


8. The weather is here, wish you were too!

With an average high of 70 degrees and average low of 50, giving you an average of 60 degrees year round temperature—doesn’t get much better than that! Enough of a chill for sweatshirts and vests in the fall, a short winter to get a snow day fix, and just enough breeze in the summer months to stay comfortable.


7. Bored is not in our vocabulary

You will never run out of things to do and places to explore.  Home to the Nashville Sounds baseball team, Tennessee Titans NFL team, Nashville Predators hockey team, you can keep your sports enthusiast busy year round.  All music lovers can find live music in a variety of genres, too!


6. Need a job?

Beyond being a music industry hub, Nashville is home to many other well known large businesses.  Nissan of North America, Vanderbilt University, human resources company Randstad, the electric appliance company Asurion, and The Kroger Co. just to name a few.   The unemployment rate is below the national average and there are jobs for more than just aspiring musicians.


5. Keep your hard earned money

Once you’ve landed a job here, you get to keep more of your paycheck. Tennessee is one of only nine states to not charge a personal income tax meaning more of your money in your pocket to use to explore the city.


4. Commute time

You’re working where you want, keeping more of your money, and the commute is not too shabby either.   Less than half an hour for the average resident, Nashvillians are able to get to and from work with fewer headaches than other major cities.


3. Foodies for life

Ranked #11 by US News as places to live, the food experience in Nashville is not something to skip out on.  With southern gourmet as a top item, you cant live in Nashville without trying all of the hot spots. From bar hopping on Broadway to trendy dining in East Nashville, you can enjoy everything from famous hot chicken to more tapas focused places to meet every food craving.


2. Live amongst the stars

With its laid-back demeanor, but still bustling city and business life, many stars call Nashville home.  It wouldn’t be uncommon to run into famous singers and musicians at the grocery store, in the car pick up line, or at a restaurant.  Nashville in classy and inviting to all people making it fun and easy for stars to walk around and enjoy regular life with everyone else.  Maybe Tim and Faith? Maybe Nicole Kidman will be passing you on the sidewalk.


1. Music makes the town go round 

Nashville may have a country twang because it is known as the epicenter for country music, but it is also the place to be for all aspiring artist and musicians.  You can find a variety of live music on the streets of Broadway, and the district in Nashville known as Music Row is also home to all the major record labels such as Sony and OmniSound Studios.
