What to Look for in a Community
February 9, 2021
When you’re picking your perfect homesite, it’s important to know not just what you want your actual house to look like, but what you want your surroundings to be. Ole South boasts a wide range of newly-built communities across the Nashville, all with a variety of features and amenities. While trying to narrow down a homesite can be daunting, there are quite a few things to consider that will help you make your choice.
This is an obvious one, but it can’t be overlooked. Do you have school-aged children (or do you plan to have kids soon) and if so, how important is being in an area with good school districts? Is being close to downtown and a short drive away from restaurants and shopping the priority, or would you trade convenience and fun nights out for a peaceful countryside retreat? Fortunately, Ole South’s community locations, which range from lively Smyrna to tranquil Pleasant View to those nestled on the shores of Old Hickory Lake, can accommodate all preferences and lifestyles.
If you love your morning jogs or like to let your kids go for a walk at night, it’s important to feel safe in your community. Many of Ole South’s communities offer sidewalks and well-lit streets to ensure that you can trust your and your kids’ safety. Take into account other aspects of the community that will impact safety as well—for instance, a stream running throughout your neighborhood may look lovely, but flood danger can quickly arise during heavy rains. Be sure not to select a homesite on top of a steep hill that might ice up during the winter, especially if you or someone in your household has a disability.
How would you like to live somewhere with a glittering outdoor pool and brand-new clubhouse that let you bond with your neighbors? Or maybe you’re interested in walking paths and tree-lined streets, or a trail that goes right down to the lake. Many Ole South communities offer fun central amenities that make living at our properties that much sweeter.
