White House Named In Best Places To Buy A Home
White House has been named as one of the best places in Tennessee to buy a home by NerdWallet. With a 83.7% home ownership rate it would seem that the secret is out. I think we can all agree that Robertson County as a whole is one of the best places to live in the US, let alone Tennessee. Robertson County offers something for just about everyone, beautiful farm land, a preserved architectural landscape and it’s just the right distance from Nashville.
NerdWallet analyzed data for the 58 Tennessee cities, towns and places with more than 10,000 residents to answer three main questions:

3. Is the area growing? They measured population growth to ensure that the area is attracting new residents and showing signs of solid growth. This is likely a signal of a robust local economy, which is another attractive characteristic for home buyers.
“Situated along Interstate 65 at the intersection of State Route 76 and U.S. Highway 31W, White House is about 25 miles north of downtown Nashville. This small town with a friendly atmosphere has a home ownership rate of 83.7%, and monthly homeowner costs take up 24.5% of the median monthly household income. Schools from the Sumner County and Robertson County public school districts serve the area. For relaxation, residents here take advantage of the White House Inn Library and the town’s parks and greenway. White House also offers residents the chance to make their mark on the city through its Living Legacy Tree Program, where residents can buy a tree and plant it in the park system to honor a special person or event.”
It’s always nice to believe that you made a wise decision when you chose what city to live in but it still feels good to hear it from a neutral party. Congratulations White House..
