Remote Workers Can Work From Anywhere...
Here’s Why it Should Be Nashville.

 

If you could work from home and didn't need to go into the office ever again, where would you live?

Working from home is becoming less a luxury and more the standard in the 21st century. Record numbers of remote workers around the globe now make their own hours, raise families, go on trips and often... work in their pajamas!

One of the biggest perks of remote working is living ANYWHERE you want.

These days, more and more people are saying farewell to the office, along with bad coffee, impatient bosses and break-room birthday cake. These workers are smartening up and taking their workplace to the comfort and relaxation of their own homes. And guess what… also finding productivity numbers are going up once the stresses of office life go away! Now Leasing believes that home-based workers are starting to not only look beyond their office buildings but also the cities in which they live.

So to those executives we ask… why not Nashville?


The United States Census states, “As communication and information technologies advance, workers are increasingly able to perform work at home. Since work is often more than simply a means of making a living, but tends to dictate how people organize their lives, changes in work patterns have both economic and social implications.”

Of all the incredible cities in America, how do home-based workers choose where to move themselves and their families? They start by doing some research. They look at school success rates, cost of living, crime rates, economic security, recreation, weather, culinary diversity, cultural diversity, political leanings, real estate, traffic and even how nice the people are.

You may be wondering why Nashville so often graces the top of the list when people consider where to move. Quite simply, it is because Nashville scores high in every category that people consider when looking for a new home. If you don't believe us, just take a look at the growing numbers of people who moved to Nashville in the past decade alone:

 

Downtown Nashville Residential Population Growth

 

Here are a few more lists that Nashville topped in the past few years:
Nashville Ranks No. 13 in 100 Best Cities to Live
US News & World Report: Best Places to Live

Men's Journal: The 10 Best Places To Live Now
Nashville Ranked 13th Best Place To Live


 

Think Nashville may not be the best fit for your particular demographic or lifestyle? Think again! Nashville is the perfect fit for ANY remote worker lifestyle…

...Its Excellent for Executives

According to the most recent Census, about one-fourth of home-based workers were in management, business, and financial occupations. Many of these positions are corporate executives. Often, companies will send their executives all over the country, closing deals and opening up new branches, leaving many of these executives working from hotels, airports and coffee shops. Now Leasing offers luxury executive and corporate suites to these executives and we see how often they decide to hang their hats in Nashville! In a job where all planes, offices and continental breakfasts look the same, Music City offers a splash of color, culture and excitement to come home to. Not to mention, more bang for your buck in the residential market as compared to New York or Los Angeles.



...A Must For Millennials
We’re seeing a boom in companies hiring at-home workers from Apple to Amazon! Amazon recently announced that they will be hiring 5,000 home-based workers. They understand that employees who are happy and not stressed by the daily rigors of office life perform better, leading to better productivity and an improved bottom line. For young professionals, there are distinct advantages to working from home in Nashville.

  • Great networking and connection groups.
  • Above standard music and arts scene.
  • One of the new creative hot-spots in the country.
  • Valuable multi-industrial networking events for young professionals in Nashville which can lead to home-based workers feeling more connected than they were in an office.

...Great for Golden Workers
Working from Nashville can be an excellent option for senior workers. According to the U.S. Census, About 1 in 10 workers who worked exclusively from home were over the age of 65 in 2010 and that number has only grown. Since Nashville is such a great place for people of all ages, you can make amazing memories with the kids and grandkids by going to hockey games or live music! You may still be working from your home office but the moment you “clock out,” you have the Nashville playground at your disposal to make new memories.



...Perfect For Working Parents
In a recent study conducted by Remote.co of nearly 130 remote companies, they found businesses with large remote workforces have a higher percentage of women in leadership roles than traditional office-based companies. They also found that 72% of women in leadership roles were parents or caregivers. Nashville is perfect for parents for many reasons including schools, kid’s recreational activities and more.

Here are some great reasons why parenting in Nashville is one of the best experiences in the U.S.:

Nashville is HOTTER and in more demand than it has been in any year in our history.  Because of this trend, corporate housing has become high in demand, leaving many business travelers stuck without a home away from home or resigned to a mediocre corporate suite.

Places like the spectacular new Nashville Convention Center along with a multitude of professional conferences and other business attractions have brought RECORD NUMBERS of corporate executives and visitors to Music City for business purposes. 

While some companies may have difficulty booking even subpar, mediocre corporate suites for their employees due to availability, clients of Now Leasing are finding and securing  THE PREMIERE luxury corporate suites in the hottest locations around Nashville, Memphis and other hot and growing USA cities.

According to the Corporate Housing Industry Presentation published by the General Services Administration, the average number of nights stayed for a corporate housing booking currently sits at about 85 nights. This number is up from 78 nights per booking just ten years ago.

When it comes to Memphis and Nashville, TN more people are coming and they are staying longer, which further complicates corporate suite availability. 

According to the Nashville Convention & Visitors Bureau, Nashville saw 13.9 million visitors this past year alone. This can make finding available space for an 80-90 day stay quite difficult.  For this reason Now Leasing continues to secure and provide the finest corporate suites located in the hottest areas of booming  Nashville and Memphis.

Many companies are selling extended stay for the masses, resulting in customers not receiving the QUALITY and LIFESTYLE they have worked so hard to achieve. Options like these (which can often contain extended-stay hotels, full service hotels, condos and apartment communities) do not always provide the full list of amenities that OUR clients are seeking. The following data from CHPA shows more clearly the benefits of corporate housing as opposed to alternative options.

It’s clear that corporate suites are the better investment, even without factoring in the far-above-industry standards that Now Leasing provides. Not only are our properties state of the art in design and technology, but also delivers an excellent hospitality experience. We are happy to be your partner while we have the pleasure of hosting you in hot Music City.

Now Leasing has the perfect place for you, your associates and your family! Every executive has a different story and a different lifestyle when they clock out. While you are a client of Now Leasing, you will be working with a company that creates the luxurious and unwinding experience when you walk through the door. 

Is your idea of unwinding a nightcap with co-workers after closing the big deal?

How about a nice family dinner with bedtime stories at the end?

Or perhaps a Martini before a night out on the town listening to good music?

Your idea of luxury and unwinding can be ANYTHING YOU WANT it to be with Now Leasing. You work hard so we are here to do the same for you by finding you the best possible place in Nashville to live. 

Our goal is to deliver you the spoils of what you work so hard for. Let us encourage you to not wait until everything is booked. DO NOT SETTLE for something less than you deserve.

Call Now Leasing today to discuss your options at our incredible properties in Nashville and Memphis, Tennessee.
