Exploring Nashville’s Booming Short-Term Rental Market: New Developments and Investment Opportunities

Nashville has been and continues to be an in-demand city on the move. With that growth and change, new short-term rentals continue to spring up to meet the needs for both investors and tourists alike. As the demand for short-term rentals continues to grow, Nashville offers a diverse array of existing and new developments that cater to every taste and preference. Due to the regulations in place, requiring Commercial zoning for a short-term rental property to receive a Non-Owner Occupied (NOO) permit, developments are generally earmarked for that type of use during planning stages. Luckily, Nashville’s short-term rental market has something for everyone. The Commercial land zoning restriction usually requires developers to maximize the land use for efficiency and density. The results are generally attached townhome developments as well as condo developments located between 5 to 15 minutes from Downtown. 

The latest developments are designed to maximize the STR experience by providing guests with the layout and locations to ensure comfort, convenience, and the unique cultural flair that makes Music City a top destination. See below to explore the newest short-term rental opportunities in Nashville and reach out to me for more information on these and any other STR opportunities in Nashville.
