Germantown, Elite Memphis Suburb Continues Tradition

Written by Posted On Monday, 28 February 2005 16:00

Germantown is an upscale suburb of Memphis, Tennessee, where local Realtors report the area is still a big draw for the elite.

"Germantown has great schools, churches, shopping and plenty of fine dining," says Realtor Danny Freeman . "If you're looking for a great location to raise a family, this is it. Southwind, the home of the FedEx-St. Jude Classic, is in this area as well as many other fine recreational activities. Prices range from $125k up to well over $1 million and if you're considering Germantown, location is everything in negotiating the best deal possible."

Agrees Realtor Joe Spake , "It's an established, upscale, suburban community, featuring excellent community amenities. Germantown continues to be the area's most sought after suburban municipality. Featuring many amenities -- shopping, fine restaurants, offices and professional services as well as quiet, wooded neighborhoods, a fine civic center complex, unique environmental ordinances, and an overall emphasis on quality of life."

"Known for its outstanding schools, family atmosphere, promotion of youth athletics, and appreciation for the arts," say Realtors Ken and Vicky Presley , "and with a population of 40,203, Germantown residents are proud of their city, where thoughtful planning has created an excellent environment in which to live, work, and play. Directly east of Memphis, along Poplar Ave (Hwy 72), Germantown offers award-winning schools, acres of parkland, a comprehensive fitness, recreation, and theatrical complex, an extensive sports program and IRIS, the city's chamber orchestra. The City of Germantown delivers superior public services, which rely on citizen involvement to build a high quality of life shared by people of all ages and backgrounds. All of this makes Germantown one of the Memphis metro areas top choices for relocating families.

They advise, "The recent rise in interest rates seems to be encouraging some additional buyers to get off the fence and make the move. Plus, the extremely low inventory of available new and existing Germantown homes, attributes to the premium price Germantown homeowners receive for their homes and the short marketing time they experience."
