The Clarksville, TN Housing Market: An Inside Look for Millennial Home Buyers

More and more millennials are choosing to buy homes.

Wait, before we get started we have to answer the age-old question: “Where should I live?” Unlike the generations before them, millennials are faced with returning to school, a competitive job market, and becoming post-graduates during a recession. Owning a home provides a wealth building tool that many millennials are deciding they need and want to add to their financial portfolio. According to data gathered from the National Association of Realtors Since 2013 Millennials are buying more homes than any other generation, specifically, ⅓ of the homes bought in 2017 were purchased by Millennials.

Clarksville, TN is the ideal town for Millennial Home Buyers (colleges, housing options, and low cost of living).

Clarksville is not only an affordable town, with a booming economy, affordable homes, affordable access to education, and federal, civilian, and military job opportunities; Clarksville really couldn't be in a better location geographically. That’s right, Clarksville, TN has it all and the secret’s not out yet. We all saw it happen with Austin, Portland, Brooklyn, Chattanooga, and Atlanta. Don’t look back and wish you would have bought a home in the new “up and coming city".

Millennials know that a competitive job market requires an advantage like education. Austin Peay State University offers four-year degrees to help students gain the training, education, and certification they need to compete in today’s economy. Whether you want to study arts, mathematics, computer science, business, health, education, etc. you can find the training you need to enter a new profession. Also, for any medical, legal, and educational professionals out there: you can satisfy your continuing education requirements. Let’s Go Peay!

Location, Location, Location! Well, Clarksville, TN definitely hits the mark.

The town itself borders Fort Campbell, KY: a joint Army and Air Force Military Installation. The low cost of living combined with countless civilian federal job openings creates a unique opportunity for millennials. Most cities with a strong federal government presence are extremely expensive and provide little to no opportunities for homeownership. To start or continue your career in the federal government while living in a city you can afford. The government agencies that have the largest presence are the following: the Department of Defense, Veterans Affairs, and Department of the Army. These departments alone staff thousands. The Social Security Administration has a field office located in Clarksville, TN. The Department of Veterans Affairs has a Clinic as well as a Tennessee Department of Veterans Services field office. We can easily find you an affordable home.
