  • Housing Statistics Murfreesboro's economy is booming, and while the housing market took a hit during the recession, just the same as many other places in the nation, it's rebounding nicely. One example of this fortitude is the number of housing sales in 2012, which totaled 3,768. The median cost for a home in January through March quarter of 2013 was $132,443, lower than many other parts of the state. The most commonly-sought-after home, the detached single-family home, came in at $137,091 in 2009, though that number is higher in 2013. For an attached home, like a townhouse, the price in 2009 was $73,020. That means individuals looking for their first home on a budget should consider attached housing since it offers such an impressive break in price. Another option for house hunters seeking deals is rent to own homes. In units of three or four the price was roughly $139,788, with the most surprising cost being $287,796 for an apartment or condo in a five or more unit structure. This suggests condos are incredibly popular and can attract higher paying buyers. The final consideration for buyers should be vacancy and ownership rates. In Murfreesboro the ownership rate is 50.2%, the renter rate is 43.1% and the vacancy rate is a fairly average 6.7%.
  • Outdoor Activities Murfreesboro is located in an area that offers plenty of open spaces for recreational enjoyment out of doors. One of the latest enhancements by the city is the Murfreesboro Greenway System extension. The series of green areas, trails, and paths will receive an extra 173 miles of bikeways, blueways, and greenways in the next 25 years. Old Fort Park has numerous sporting facilities, and Barfield-Crescent Park has fields, running trails, and 10 picnic shelters. Both are popular spots with residents.
  • Local Events and Festivals The Main Street Jazz Festival occurs every year, bringing expertly-played music to the masses. It's presented by the Middle Tennessee State University's School of Music and attracts thousands of people every year. There are also Pioneer Power Days, Old Timers' Festival, and Uncle Dave Macon Days, which features banjo music, retail vendors, and specialty foods. It's family-friendly and offers a full weekend of activities geared toward folks of all ages.
  • Local Sports The MTSU Raiders are the college teams to watch when it comes to football, soccer, baseball, basketball, or volleyball, but the Blue Raiders aren't the only local competition. The Tennessee Secondary School Athletic Association presents volleyball, tennis, and track and field, as well as the primary events like football and baseball. With Murfreesboro's temperate climate, games are rarely canceled.
  • Tourist Attractions Because of Murfreesboro's historical link to the Civil War, there are many educational historical museums, battlefields, and places of interest to visit. The Stones River National Battlefield is particularly moving. The 570-acre park is where the decisive battle for a Union victory occurred, clinching the win for the North. There is also a Stones River Arboretum located on the grounds. Additionally, visitors and residents adore the Oaklands Historic House Museum on N Maney Ave and the Discovery Center at Murfree Spring, which has a museum, 20 acres of wetland, and a trail system.
