Forbes claims Belle Meade Tennessee as number 1 spot to retire in U.S.

We all love to be recognized and have our name mentioned. So you can imagine the smile on our face when our very own city of Belle Meade was mentioned by Forbes. Not to any suprise of us, it was considered the number one spot to retire in the U.S. The factors Forbes noted Belle Meade Real Estatethat helped in determining it was the number one city to retire was the climate, scenery, location to hospitals and world class culture, medical and airport proximity. Of course, we also know it's close location to Nashville and the country music industry is a great bonus too. Nashville offers so many restaraunts no matter what your taste is. 

Another great reason to retire in Belle Meade is the cost of living. With a tax rate of $4.27 per $100 assessed value (Assessed value x 25%/100) , makes it an easy choice for retirees. Taxes for $300,000 home would be approximately $3201.00, yes folks that's a year.

Nashville being the home of The Titans and The Predators we have lots of sporting events to entertain. For the culture seekers Nashville offers The Grand Old Opry, The Ryman, Country Music Hall of Fame, Frist Center for Visual Arts, and The Hermitage- Home of President Andrew Jackson. Don't forget to visit my favorites the Farmers Market and Cheekwood Botanical Gardens. 

Looking for a great place to retire? You may consider Belle Meade as your number one choice too. Just don't plan on spending too much time in your easy chair!

Sherry, congratulations on Forbes picking your location out for the best place to retire. Isn't a tax rate of 4.66/$100 high? That's $46.66/mil !

Good Eye Norman Padula! Why you should never blog after 10 pm. Left out part of the equation and disclosure check tax link for more accurate info. $4.27 per $100 of assessed rate. Assessed rate is 25% of appraisal.  So a $300,000 home the taxes would only be $3201.00.  Some of my numbers have changed, maybe your the only one to notice.  ;0 ( I'm pretty sure winking smiley's aren't acceptable for AR, didn't have time to friend you on FB ;)    )

Hello Sherry, Congratulation on Forbes announcement of Belle Meade Tennessee recognized as one of the US cities to live in with all it's beautiful amenities but it's probably because of the great real estate citizens like Sherry Chastain who help build this great city.

I would agree with Norman when I read the tax rate I thought it was high, but just explained it above. Have a beautiful Wednesday and once again CONGRATULATIONS on being recognized by Forbes.
