For the past two years, developers, property owners and Realtors alike have been treated to what some call the best real estate market in the country. Sellers are realizing astronomical returns on their investments as they shed properties that they have been strapped with for years.
Affordable Housing Gets Foot in the Door in Mayoral Election
In recent weeks, the mayor's race has taken a new focus: Affordable housing. Some in the community feel this is unwarranted and take issue with organizations such as NOAH (Nashville Organized for Action and Hope), which are forcing the candidates to spend more time on social issues, which I support.
As the poet William Cowper wrote: "Variety's the very spice of life that gives it all its flavor." And without the big houses, there will be no affordable houses, since the economy would halt. So, keep them coming. Leave a little something for the up-and-comers.
