Mt. Juliet Housing Market Is Booming

MT. JULIET, Tenn. - One of the fastest growing cities in Tennessee is showing no signs of slowing down. As a result, the housing market in Mt. Juliet is booming.

New homes are popping up all over the city, including at one of the fastest growing subdivisions, Masters View. Construction in the area is constant, as Citizens Homes looks to build homes to keep up with demands. 

The development will eventually consist of 124 new homes priced from $250,000 to $400,000.  Realtors said potential buyers are lining up.

"They want a lot of square footage for their money, and they want to be close to shopping and the interstate," says realtor Monique Flores with Reliant Realty.

She works as a news homes specialist at Citizens Homes.

"They also want that feel like they are far away from the city. This development  can offer that, and this entire area is in high demand," said Flores. 

Masters View is located next to the Pine Creek golf course, and the next phase of construction will feature homes that back up to the course.

"It's a beautiful area that has great views for homeowners," says Flores.

Last year, 400 new homes were built in city limits and the population has grown 22 percentsince 2006. 

City leaders believe the trend will continue.

"A lot of people are relocating from other areas," says Mt. Juliet City Manager Kenny Martin. "The biggest growth is coming from all over the country. I think it's the perfect storm. The city is close to Nashville, the airport and the interstate, and the location is perfect."

Martin said retail development is keeping up with the new homes. More shopping options, good schools and low crime rates make the city even more desirable.

"I think we are just getting started," said Martin. "We've just tapped into the parts of growth we'll see."

Martin says city leaders recognize with growth comes increased traffic and congestion, but believes the city can handle the additional people and businesses.

"We try and keep up with the infrastructure," says Martin. "We've tried vigorously to maintain that small town charm while having all the big city benefits."
