SmartAsset names MJ 6th healthiest housing market
Tuesday, June 2, 2015

Organizations keep giving Mt. Juliet accolades, whether it be business friendly, safest or best places to live. 

Recently, Smart Asset, a financial analysis website, has named Mt. Juliet the 6th healthiest housing market in Tennessee, and 163rd in the United States. 

"Mt. Juliet is always honored and blessed to be recognized and highlighted in such a positive way by such a prestigious organization. On behalf of the Mayor, Vice Mayor, Staff, we want to thank our citizens first and foremost, our staff and all of the wonderful businesses and residents that help make Mt. Juliet what it truly is. We would also like to thank Smart Assets for the wonderful recognition," said Mt. Juliet City Manager Kenny Martin. 

Smart Asset considered several different indicators when coming up with their rankings. They were average years lived in a home, average homes with negative equity, homes sold at a loss, average days for a house on the market, and home costs of percentage of income. 

Mt. Juliet excelled at a low percentage of homes sold at a loss, average days on the market  and homes with negative equity. They were the best out of the top 10 cities in the first two categories. 

Mt. Juliet only sees 10.4 percent of homes sold at a loss, and the average number of days on the market is 112.5. 

Kingsport was No. 1 in the state, followed by Oak Ridge, Kingston, Seymour and Brentwood. 

Rounding out the top 10 behind Mt. Juliet was Jonesborough, Fairview, Johnson City and Manchester.

Local developer passes
Tuesday, June 2, 2015

On May 29, Robert E. (Bob) Earheart was laid to rest at Hermitage Memorial Gardens.  A small group of close family and friends were in attendance. 

Earheart was a devoted husband and father who loved and was loved by his children. He had a long and prosperous career in residential development, and was a principle figure in the early development of modern day west Wilson County. Earheart moved to Mt. Juliet in the early 1980s and focused on developments and land acquisitions in the area. Earheart believed that you had to be 20 years ahead of growth if you were in the land acquisition business. 

When Earheart moved to Mt. Juliet, it was little more than a large community on the outskirts of Nashville. He had a unique personality and an ability to see development before it had matured. As the community continues to lose people of his stature, it signifies a passing of an era in the community.
