Re: “As high-dollar houses crowd onto tiny lots, teardown fever is sickening neighborhoods across Nashville

Not all builders are the bad guys. Plenty of us build size and style appropriate infill homes. In fact on more than one occasion I have had neighbors complain because the houses I was building were TOO SMALL-- they wanted big houses that would increase their property value!

This is a classic NIMBY situation. Everyone understands the need for density and that old houses must sometimes be replaced with new, but Not In My Back Yard. Also, not everyone has the same tastes so just because you personally HATE a house doesn't mean everyone has to agree with you. Most of these neighborhoods mentioned were eclectic blends of styles to begin with.
As a final thought, for those complaining, buy that tear down house next door and fix it up yourself.
Risk the financial well being of your family on your ability to save a poorly built, improperly maintained house. See how hard it is to not lose money on the deal. But please try to limit your complaining if you are not personally willing to risk your own money on these homes. It is not as easy as you think and no one is minting money building infill houses!
