The Hop Stop: East Nashville’s Newest Beer Growler Filling Location
Josh Anderson, Always in Tune with Nashville Real Estate (Keller Williams - The Anderson Group)

Why The Hop Stop Is the Only Growler Filling Spot You Need


The Hop Stop East NashvilleAnother new beer revolution has taken over Music City. No longer must you rely on convenience stores and grocery stores to stock the beers you love. We all know how rare finding a good craft beer among the domestics at Kroger is, too. Fortunately, a few trail blazers decided to open growler filling stations, starting with Craft Brewed on 8th Avenue South near ML Rose. Later came the Filling Station at 12 South. Now, we have The Hop Stop in East Nashville. These booming businesses make stopping in to fill your growler with your favorite local and national craft beers a snap.


About The Hop Stop


Located just off Trinity Lane and Gallatin Pike, The Hop Stop is in a very convenient spot. Beer aficionados in this area of Inglewood have been fortunate with the choices, since Village Pub and Beer Garden is located nearby, too. In fact, The Hop Stop is the brainchild of the very same owners who brought Village Pub to life and success. That means you can expect the same quality service and beer choices you’ve already come to love from Jesse Hamilton’s first endeavor.


This is an already hot part of town, too. Homes in the area are being snapped up and remodeled on a weekly basis. Neighborhoods are still affordable, bringing many young professionals to the area. It won’t be long before home values really take off.


What Makes The Hop Stop Different?


When growler filling shops are opening right and left in Nashville, how can one possibly stand out? Well, The Hop Stop does, and the reasons have a lot to do with the staff, who are all attentive, knowledgeable, and just super nice. Then, there’s the menu. A growler joint with food? Absolutely. The main feature is the hot dog on a pretzel bun, but the various styles of dogs with incredible fresh ingredients will win you over immediately. Then there’s the spicy black bean hummus or the hoppy popcorn if you’re just looking for something light. Of course, the real star is the beer. These guys make excellent beer selections so you can get exactly what you want.

The Age-Old Real Estate Debate: Rent vs. Buy
Josh Anderson, Always in Tune with Nashville Real Estate (Keller Williams - The Anderson Group)

Where Are Your Dollars Better Spent?


renting vs. buying a homeChoosing between renting and buying is often as simple as determining how long you plan to be in your current home. For short-term stays, renting is the better option. So much investment is needed for making a purchase that you won’t see a return for up to four years or more. Those planning to stick around a while, however, will find that buying is the better deal.


Real-Life Application


To show you what we mean, we’ve used this rent calculator to give you an idea of the money spent from year to year on both mortgage and rent for the same home. This home, for our purposes, is located in East Nashville, has a price of $150,000 or rent payments of $900 per month. Can you picture it?


For the first four years of living in this home, renting is better. In fact, in year three, you’d save over a thousand dollars just by renting instead of buying. By year four, however, you’d save $364 as the homeowner instead of a tentant, and at six years, you’d save nearly $2000.


These numbers take into account several factors, including interest on your mortgage, property taxes, maintenance, and homeowner’s insurance. While these aren’t necessary expenditures for renting, many are included in the monthly mortgage payment, which would be lower than a lease payment. Where the money is saved, aside from a lower mortgage payment, is in rising rent payments from year to year, for which you receive no equity.


Find Your East Nashville Dream


Believe it or not, plenty of homes in East Nashville fit right into this price model. We’ve selected eleven different properties that could fulfill your hopes of being a homeowner instead of renting. Take a look at what’s available under $150,000 in East Nashville and then start taking control of your future.

Take Part in the Fun


The new restaurant is located inside the triangle formed by Café Margot, Red Door Saloon, and Café Marche. The interior is rugged yet polished, a great environment for dates or just nights out with friends. The cocktail menu is enviable, adding to East Nashville’s reputation for top-notch mixology.

East Nashville Expands Yet Again

east nashville growingThe East Nashville neighborhood is one of the hottest in the city. Most consider the 37206 zip code the center of the action, but over the past several years, the community has stretched almost to Madison and now includes the 37216 zip code. Homes in these areas have seen steady price appreciation, even through the latest economic crisis. Now, East Nashville is growing once more, with its eye firmly on the 37207 zip code.

McFerrin Park

Much attention has been paid to the McFerrin Park neighborhood in recent months because of an initiative to save the Roxy Theatre, the community’s historic entertainment complex. In addition to these efforts, homes between Cleveland Street and Downtown have experienced revitalization and renovation. New construction, new business, and historic refurbishment put this neighborhood on the map as one to watch.

Cleveland Park

Between Douglas Avenue and Cleveland Street, homes are seeing a resurgence in attention and interest. Many have been flipped or simply remodeled for the owner’s enjoyment. The result is beautiful houses on manicured lots, with safer sidewalks for family strolls. Nearby, Cleveland Park awaits anyone in the mood for a ball game, run, or picnic.

Beyond Douglas Avenue

Even beyond Douglas Avenue, between Trinity Lane and these amazing neighborhoods, homes are getting new attention. Not only are the existing homes getting makeovers, but new, contemporary styles are being introduced. Though farther from downtown, the convenience is still undeniable. 

Incredible Appreciation

A mere two years ago, homes in the area sold at prices of $90 to $100 per square foot. The latest listings in these neighborhoods now range from $135 to $155 per square foot. The appreciation in price is hard to ignore. Those seeking investment properties would find plenty of value in this area. If you’re one looking for homes with promising futures, contact The Anderson Group today.

Revitalization Continues in Nashville and Surrounding Areas
Josh Anderson, Always in Tune with Nashville Real Estate (Keller Williams - The Anderson Group)

Nashville’s Urban Redevelopment Focuses on Abandoned Theaters

urban renewal nashville belle meade theatreThe latest in revitalization for urban areas in Nashville and the surrounding areas focuses on abandoned theaters and shopping complexes. Perhaps the most visible of these exists in the Belle Meade community, where the theater received a facelift and a grocery store tenant. The project has served as a model for other areas of the city.

8th Avenue South

The introduction of ML Rose began the renaissance of the Melrose area. An abandoned theater across the street was once the jewel in the crown of a strip mall, which, until recently, featured a lone holdover in the form of a billiards hall. The theater is now undergoing renovation, and new retail spaces are being remodeled for future tenants. Apartments and other housing options are also being built. These homes will join other recent developments as some of the most sought after in the city.

Meridian Street and McFerrin Park

The Roxy Theatre was once one of Nashville’s finest entertainment complexes. With a history including some of the city’s biggest names—Johnny Cash, to name one—the theater was prime for renovation. Now undergoing remodeling, the Roxy and the surrounding buildings are now being considered East Nashville’s most lucrative refurbishment. Plans for live entertainment and classic movies will bring a whole new audience to the neighborhood, which is already experiencing revival. Soon to follow will be restaurants, coffee shops, and retail spaces that will boost home values.

These recent developments will certainly spark renewed interest in other abandoned strip malls and theaters in the city and surrounding area. If those exist in your neighborhood, keep a close eye on the proceedings. The finished product is sure to elevate home prices in your area, so a push to renovate existing structures is a wise step.

To learn more about the homes available in these areas, contact The Anderson Group. We're as excited about urban renewal as you are!

Tomato Fest 5k in East Nashville
Kristy Hairston, Kristy Hairston (Village Real Estate)

Today I ran the Tomato 5k hosted by the Margaret Maddox YMCA in East Nashville. Mayor Karl Dean was there to start the race.

Early Morning at Tomato 5k #NashvilleAlthough it was exhausting, I had a great time.

First, let me say that I have a new appreciation for the wonderful community of East Nashville.

Many of the homeowners were outside their homes cheering us on as we ran or walked past. Some of them even had water, music and encouragement. In fact, as I ran up the wonderful Woodland street hill, there was a neighbor with two speakers on his front lawn, blasting "Eye of the Tiger!" It made me smile.

Runners were encouraging each other and we all finished feeling very accomplished. 

The Tomato Arts Fest will be going on for the remainder of the day today. If you are in town, stop by and see us at the Village Real Estate table. 

For more information about participating next year, follow @tomato5k or visit www.tomatoartfest.com

Nashville TN - After the storms last night.
Rhonda Burgess, Murfreesboro Homes & Nashville HUD Home Specialist (Southern Living Realty Partners)

I saw on the news that the National Weather Service said that 3 different tornadoes touched down in Tennessee last night.  In Nashville, the meterologists were saying it was more likely staight line winds.  Another report today said the wind gusts reached 105 miles per hour last night in Murfreesboro TN.  I snapped a couple of pictures today of the damage and downed trees in the East Nashville/Inglewood area.
