  • I think your reasoning for the hike in residential pricing is misplaced and if it thecreason you stated above, it’s not really valid. Just because young people are moving here doesn’t mean, a studio apt in the heart of Nashville should cost 1350 a month. Just because people from bigger cities are moving here doesn’t mean a house in a recently gentrified are of town should be $ 500,000. Gentrification is the real reason, but that doesn’t sound as good. I’m all for progress, but not progress that includes exclusion.
