Money magazine has selected the 25 most affordable places to live and La Vergne is #13. Boaters and fishermen are drawn to the 14,000-acre Percy Priest Lake for recreation, parents to the highly-rated schools and everyone finds the low taxes in this northern municipality hard to resist.”
While the June decision to increase the tax rate, along with additional water and sewer fees, has not been without local controversy, the city remains very affordable on a national scale. CNN Money lists the median home price at $106,400 and the median family income at $64,043, so the city is viewed nationally as very affordable.
La Vergne Mayor Senna Mosley said, "We must not lose sight of the bigger picture as we grow into a town with adequate fire and police protection, healthy infrastructure, and great programs for our citizens. I am incredibly proud that we are the 13th most affordable place to live in the United States.”
