New residents from other states are snapping up Middle Tennessee homes in all price ranges, but especially, they are buying the more comfortable, newer homes. Given the inexcusably outrageous cost of housing on both coasts, sellers there are amazed at how much more house or how many more amenities their dollars will buy in Middle Tennessee homes. Often, the most exciting prospect is having large closets in every bedroom, rather than dinky ones that only hold a few dozen clothes hangers.
