Worldwide inflow: Extra folks transferring to Nashville from all over the world | Rising Nashville

NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) – It’s no secret that people flock to Nashville every day. However, it is not just people from all over the country, but also from all over the world.

As Nashville continues to grow and become more than just a city known for country music, tech and healthcare professionals are starting to dominate. International companies are paying attention.

“Nashville is on the map, not for the country, not for the Southeast, but for the whole world as a real estate investment market,” said Joel Sanders, Founder and CEO of Apartment Insiders. “It used to be one of those flyover markets where that kind of money only went to New York City or San Francisco, and now those investment dollars are going to Nashville.”

According to recent censuses, the number of companies and corporations with international connections in Nashville has almost doubled in the past 10 years. This in turn creates more jobs and more real estate needs.

The countries with the most immigrants are Great Britain, Australia and Japan.

“Nashville has always had this interesting connection with Japan,” said Sanders. “We have Nissan, we have Nissan, we have Bridgestone, even Mitsubishi just got a bunch of jobs here, and even the current Senator from Tennessee was the ambassador to Japan, so there was this unique bond.”

In December, non-stop flights from Nashville to London via British Airways were resumed at Nashville International Airport. Airport leaders said more international offerings will be added in the coming years.
