The median monthly rent payment in Nashville is about $40 more than what it is in other cities close to Nashville's size – that number is $1,491. 

In the past year, nationwide, the median rent figure fell in 19 of the largest 35 largest market. That included Nashville, where the median rent went down only about $10.

The median U.S. home price is $216,700, but in Nashville it's about $245,000.

The median home price in Nashville is helping the median home price in the country go up. Nashville's price year-to-year rose 8.6 percent.
