Homes for Sale Across the Mid-South

Located on the Mississippi River just east of Arkansas and north of Mississippi, Memphis and the surrounding metropolitan area is home to over one million people. The 40th largest metropolitan area in the U.S., Memphis sits in the southwest corner of Tennessee. Within the Memphis MSA, or Metropolitan Statistical Area, are the counties of Crittenden, Desoto, Fayette, Shelby and Tipton.

Memphis has year-round easy living, with a moderate climate and lots of sunshine that allow for golf and other outdoor activities to be played in every season. Almost all precipitation is rain, with a few rare opportunities for snow in the winter months. The Memphis geography is ideal for trees, shrubs, and plants, as the rich soil holds on to enough moisture to nurture the most majestic of trees, which blanket the city. This makes the spring and fall seasons especially enjoyable.

The JudyMac Team of Crye-Leike Realtors sell homes across the city, including the Downtown, Midtown, and East Memphis areas.

Downtown Memphis is a dynamic part of the city with lots to see and do.

Midtown

Midtown is located east of downtown Memphis and to the west of the area considered East Memphis. Interstate 240 represents the western border dividing Midtown from the downtown area and the Memphis medical district. In a city known for its soul, vibrant Midtown fits right in.  Many homes are undergoing renovation in order to capture their original splendor in the historic Cooper-Young neighborhood.

Midtown also boasts the newly improved Overton Square entertainment district, and is close to many of Memphis' colleges and universities. The old Sears building has been redeveloped into the innovative Crosstown Concourse, a mixed-use vertical urban village, where people gather to live, work and play. New businesses, restaurants, nightspots, and galleries have opened, and the vintage clothing stores, coffee houses, street festivals, and local art give Midtown a distinctly bohemian vibe.

East Memphis

it's sometimes hard to pinpoint exactly where "East Memphis" is, thanks to the explosive outward growth of the city. But generally speaking, East Memphis is considered to be the area east of Midtown, just inside the I-240 loop to the north and south, and just west of Germantown to the east. Some of the city's most convenient residential neighborhoods are located on the long winding lanes just off Poplar Avenue. Large colonial and ranch-style homes tend to be the norm, many on beautifully landscaped lots. You won’t find many large parcels of land in this area of town, so most new development focuses on upscale zero-lots and condominiums.

Poplar Avenue is the main thoroughfare and the commercial hub of the area. Several major companies have corporate headquarters here, including International Paper and Union Planters National Bank. The shopping opportunities are plentiful and varied, including the upscale Oak Court Mall, the luxurious Laurelwood Shopping Center, and the fine shopping and dining found at the Regalia Center. The central location of East Memphis, coupled with its lovely, leafy neighborhoods, make this area an attractive option for many new residents.
