Smyrna, TN – As any Smyrna Graduate may say Smyrna is “Home of the Bulldogs!”
Town of Smyrna Website: http://www.townofsmyrna.org
As a Realtor® residing in Rutherford County, Tennessee and working mainly from my company’s Smyrna, TN office, I am often asked about the various areas in Rutherford County. Today, I was asked some information about Smyrna.
Other than the typical sharing of some popular restaurants in the area, making note of and Hospital being close to the interstate- right off exit 66, noting there are several churches, explaining where schools are, commenting that Nissan is known to be the largest employer in Smyrna, etc. …
I also pulled up a couple different websites that gave some data and here is what I found.
DID YOU KNOW…?
- The town was originally settled in the 19th Century.
- The population tripled from 1970 to 1980.
- Per Bestplaces.net, the 2014 population was 40,118 people. They further state this represents a 39.37% growth since 2000.
- In discussing home sales, Bestplaces.net also indicates home appreciation the last year was 9.10 percent!
- Lastly, their website indicates that compared to the rest of the country, Smyrna’s cost of living is 9.40% Lower than the U.S. average.
- In 2007, US News and World Report listed Smyrna as one of the best places to retire.
I also ran some data on the Multiple Listing Service (MLS). I found the following regarding recent home sales in Smyrna:
From 5/1/2104 through today and the average days on the market came in at 47 days for homes listed between $150,000-200,000. It was 71 days for $200k-250K and for homes listed between $250 – 300K, the average days on the market was 48. (All price ranges had a decent number of homes closed since May 1! And these totals did not delete short sales or foreclosures that may have longer than normal days on the market. I did not include condos on this search.)

You may also like to view my website, www.MaroneyRealEstate.com and browse homes listed. If you wish to check out the free valuation link the site provides for you and I both, please do so…simply look for “seller” at the top left of the home page. PLEASE know this is an automated link without the ability to run what we call a Comparative Market Analysis (CMA) that will be complete and specific to your location. I have found this link is often high, but it is provided as an estimate if you are curious. If you’d prefer a specific CMA, — it’s FREE and there is no obligation, please contact me. I’m here to help!
