A seven-acre town 50 miles south of Nashville is on sale for $725,000.
The town has four former stores, a barn, and a creek.
The real-estate broker said some people had likened it to the fictional Schitt's Creek.
A seven-acre town in central Tennessee has hit the market for $725,000.
Two of the buildings have updated wiring and plumbing, and could be used for commercial services, housing, or a B&B, per the listing.
The town also comes with "plenty of frontage on Leiper's Creek," which flows through the middle of town, Swartz told Insider.
Swartz told Fox Television Stations that she had received multiple offers on the town, and that both locals and from Hollywood producers had inquired.
"I am inundated with calls from all over the United States," she told Fox, including one day where she received 93 calls.
"We've had a couple of calls from Hollywood asking if they might buy the whole town to use as a movie set," she told Nashville station News Channel 5. "It would really strip this of the reality of the history and make it more of a stage rather than something we preserve as the history of Tennessee."
"I think until I get it sold, I'm going to continue to get calls from Hollywood and Las Vegas - folks that are saying, 'this is perfect, let us have it,'" she told WKRN. The sellers didn't want this, she said.
She told News Channel 5 that some of the people who spoke to her about the town mentioned the Schitt's Creek television series, in which a family loses all their money and relocates to a small town they once purchased as a joke.
Swartz told Fox that four relatives had bought the town in the 1970s. She told that they wanted to sell it to someone who would preserve the town and keep all the buildings.
Swartz told Insider on Tuesday that the sellers hasn't agreed on an offer to accept yet, but that she expected it may go under contract this week.
Swartz said there are loads of options for the future buyer.
"You could totally be your own mayor," Swartz told Fox. "You would also be your own everything else though, too ... so the cleaner and the mayor and the barkeeper. You could be the antique store owner."
"You get to make the decisions and make the rules for your own little town if you get Water Valley," she added.
County officials would handle the infrastructure, such as roads and water, Swartz told Fox.
Though the former town has 15 residents, Swartz told Insider that the property on sale doesn't include any homes. She did note, however, that it included living quarters with two bedrooms and three bathrooms.
Swartz told Insider that Water Valley was one of Maury County's first settlements, changed its name from Spencer's Mill in 1874 when a post office was established there. Water Valley was chosen as a name because it was regularly flooded by Leiper's Creek, she told The Tennessean.
She told Fox that most of the original Water Valley was incorporated into nearby Williamsport, and that what remains was no longer formally recognized as a town because its post office had closed.
Flyover footage of Water Valley is available on YouTube.
