Home sales rebound across county

By Vicki Stout For Williamson A.M
Fieldstone, Westhaven were most active in 2011
 Fieldstone Farms, Franklin’s first planned development, and Westhaven, the neighborhood that will soon overtake it as the biggest in the county, were the top-selling neighborhoods in Williamson County in 2011.
According to Diane Osowiecki and Mandy Buchholz of Diane O and Friends, out of Benchmark Realty in Brentwood, home sales improved in 2011 after several challenging years.
“Fieldstone ... has a Publix grocery store, restaurants and a school. It has everything from condos to zero-lot line to a senior community,” Osowiecki said of the neighborhood, which registered 131 home sales in 2011.
Amy Tarter of Bob Parks Realty says Fieldstone remains desirable because of its good location, pool, clubhouse and homes in a wide variety of price ranges.Westhaven, with 115 home sales in 2011 — with an average sales price of $526,000 — was the second-best seller in Franklin, according to Osowiecki.“They have lots of amenities, and building has really begun booming there again,” Tarter said.
The third-most-active neighborhood in Franklin for 2011 was McKay’s Mill. According to Osowiecki, 72 single-family homes sold there.
“The community is now a seller’s market,” she said. “There’s so little inventory there. It’s a very popular live, work and play community.”
Next on the list, she said, is Ladd Park, with 58 single-family homes sold.
“The community has over two miles of Harpeth River frontage; 240 acres of open space are connected by 10 acres of trails, making it very desirable,” Osowiecki said.
Tarter said Ladd Park’s prices became more reasonable in 2011, helping it make a comeback from a lull.
Fifth on the list of top sellers in Franklin is Franklin Green with 51 sales in 2011. Osowiecki says this community’s great price point made it a top seller. Tarter says the price point and family orientation of the community enhanced its sales.
Brookfield moves in Brentwood
Osowiecki says Brookfield was the top-selling Brentwood community, with 36 homes selling in 2011.
“The homes in this neighborhood range in size from 3,000-plus square feet to 5,000-plus square feet,” Osowiecki said.
