Not Stagnant or Dead

If you live in a town in middle Tennessee that does not have a lot of housing growth, you are either "stagnant or dead" according to Candy Roberts, executive director of the Middle Tennessee Association of Realtors.

Today's Daily News Journal published an article on the growth in Rutherford County called "No Laid Back Country Place." Several Murfreesboro residents are interviewed, but the most interesting statistic to me is:
It is one of the fastest-growing counties in the nation based on the rate
single-family houses, townhouses and apartments are being constructed.
Rutherford County ranks No. 20 in the nation, increasing housing units by 6.4
percent from 2004 to 2005, according to data released Monday by the U.S. Census Bureau.

If you want to live in the country, you'll need to go farther out toward Eagleville, Rockvale, or head toward Cannon County. Wilson County is also a good option for country living, although Lebanon and Mt. Juliet seem to be absolutely taking off.
