Boston was more of a surprise at No. 2, with music-focused city Nashville ranking in at No. 3. Although the Southern city is traditionally a home to country music, boasting venues like the Grand ‘Ole Opry and breeding stars like Willie Nelson and Garth Brooks, over the last decade the city has built a bustling scene in genres including rock, indie, and punk.

Forbes eschewed traditional measures of creativity — such as patent filings and occupational statistics — and instead partnered with Sperling’s Best Places to analyze the number of projects being promoted or managed on websites Kickstarter, Indiegogo, Bandcamp and ReverbNation. In the U.S.’s 50 largest metro areas, the number of projects or artists on the sites was measured against the local population.

In a fast-paced real estate market, every buyer must be ready to make a decision on a home quickly. In many Nashville neighborhoods and at a variety of price points, the competition for well-priced homes is strong. Buyers and Realtors are walking into a showing with a contract – and with financing and other prep work already locked down so they can move fast.

With increased year-over-year sales and rising median home prices for both single-family homes and condominiums, the Nashville real estate market shows no signs of slowing down. In fact, the May home sales figures from the Greater Nashville Association of REALTORS report the following:

  • There were 3,108 sales pending at the end of May, compared with 3,069 sales pending at this time last year
  • The average number of days on the market for a single-family home was 70 days.
  • The median residential price in May was $209,900 for a single-family home and $174,000 for a condominium. This compares with last year’s median residential and condominium prices of $195,000 and $166,900, respectively.

And Nashville isn’t alone. REALTORS® generally expect home prices to increase in all states and the District of Columbia over the next 12 months, according to the May 2014 REALTORS® Confidence Index. The median expected price increase is 4.0 percent.
