Cost of living, jobs in Rutherford County make for hot real estate market

5 min read

It’s no secret anymore: Rutherford County is one of Tennessee’s hottest real estate markets.

“Out of the top 10 zip codes most popular in the Nashville area, four are in Rutherford County,” county property assessor Rob Mitchell said.

  1. No. 4: West Murfreesboro’s 37128, encompassing the growing Blackman community.
  2. No. 5: Central and northeastern Murfreesboro in the 37130 zip code.
  3. No. 8: Smyrna’s 37167.
  4. No. 9: The 37129 zip code includes Medical Center Parkway and northwestern portions of the county near Interstate 840.

“People are interested in Rutherford County … because there’s a hometown feel … and because there are great school systems, and (Middle Tennessee State University) is a huge draw,” said John Goodman, a 28-year real estate veteran with Red Realty

Despite having several competing offers on the home, the couple won the bid to purchase the home.

Job growth in Middle Tennessee is another major reason people are moving here, Goodman said. The Nissan Assembly Plant in Smyrna opened in 1983 and drew thousands. Companies that support the production plant then opened, along with other manufacturing and distribution plants such as Bridgestone.

Over time, locall jobs and a proximity to Nashville’s growing employment market boosted Rutherford County’s population in excess of 330,000.
