NASHVILLE, Tenn. - A booming population means more jobs for Music City, but it also has a downside. 

The Nashville Chamber of Commerce says Nashville is growing more than twice as fast as the national average, and job growth is almost double the national average. 

Another 200,000 people will live in the Nashville area by 2024, which will continue to put more cars on the road and less homes on the market, the chamber estimates.

It's really difficult for people coming into Nashville to find housing because there's not that much on the market right now, said Christie Wilson, whos sold real estate in Nashville for 20 years. 

Nashville is one of the hardest places in the nation to find rental properties, Wilson said. 

The Metro Nashville government is already exploring ways to expand existing infrastructure to keep up with the booming population.
