During our recent quick trips up to Knoxville and Chattanooga, we didn't look at Signal Mountain due to the prices. However, we've heard from a realtor and seen on the web that the area near Suck Creek on Signal Mountain is not out of our price range. I am looking at the web, and really need an up close and personal look see to really get the picture. But can anyone tell me about that area? I'm not sure why there's such a decrease in prices since it's on Signal Mountain, other than perhaps the fact that some of the area is not in Hamilton County (?)(not sure if I'm correct in that). There's a house with some acreage we may drive up and take a look at on our way to the Tri-Cities area.

Thanks in advance.

Thumbs up LOcation, Location, etc

C; I have the county map , there is a Suck creek rd west of Prentice cooper park, maybe west edge of Hamilton co.
However that whole Walden Ridge goes north way up to Rt #111 past Soddy Daisy. POE road (Fire Tower) has lots of acerage stuff and then you drive downNear Daisy , Red Bank and close to Rt #153/ Shopping malls.
Many people want to be right on the BROW View looking down on a 40 mile view, just like waterfront property. A house 1/8 th mile off the water line wouild always be less. Not really sure what on your Wish List.? One mile down road from me in Possum Cove,(Soddy Daisy) has AUCTION Sign for 62 acres, Mid June.!! There is plenty of stuff around and usually a Drive Around your desired neighborhood will have choices. Lots of For Sale by Owner front yard signs, not everything on WEB..........[/IMG]

First, thanks very much for your response. I understand what you're saying. You're right--we did see a lot more during our short trips than we ever did on the web. We were planning another trip in mid-June--depending upon hubby's work load--and we have step-relatives in Soddy Daisy, so the timing may be just right. Hubby's aunt is focusing on Soddy Daisy, too. Each time we've visited, we've been aiming for the Tri-Cities area, but got side-tracked. The factors we are looking at are (1) where I'll be able to get a job in the legal field, (2) where hubby will be able to put down a painting restoration biz and (3) where our two impaired children will best be served. Finally, and probably the biggest issue, is when we can get our house ready and sell it in Florida where the market has been stomped on!

Thanks again very much for your kind, informative response.

I am familiar w/Suck Creek area. The front side of Signal Mtn(Chattanooga facing) is the most costly area. Prentiss Cooper area and is much cheaper and you can still find some land up that way. Suck Creek/Prentiss Cooper is less developed and you will find smaller homes and less affluent residents are a majority. Not to say that you won't find some fabulous finds there. It's a beautiful area and w/the new schools coming up there Signal will become busier but Suck Creek is still a natural jewel that has yet to be swarmed. I have friends who lived there and loved it. As far as legal and painting jobs you should be okay there. We do have some schools for impaired children and rehab if needed. Good luck on the sale

Hi there
My husband and I are just in the beginning of the process of looking into the Chattanooga area. I am very familiar with Knoxville, but would much rather check it out there. The problem/ concern we are having is the job market there. (I am a meatcutter, my husband a bartender/ barmanager with 23 years experience) Do you have any idea? I am asking, because as a local, you would know much better, then me going online where most postings are not even put up. Any ideas?
Also, My friends suggested to check into Cleveland (I guess it would be near Chattanooga?) to find a house.
Personally, I am not looking into buying a home....I would much rather like to check out rentals first...
Thank's for any info, you might have.

Thanks very much for your very informative response. My poor hubby can't hardly break away for any length of time, so it appears I may have to come up and check this area out by myself. We've only been able to make short, hurried trips based around his schedule. My children are getting used to climbing into the back of my little Honda in their PJ's at 3:00 AM.

I have a feeling if we found a good location, once he finished a big contract he has coming up this summer, the house would go up for sale a lot sooner

As this area is growing in leaps and bounds hospitality jobs are too. Tons and I mean TONS of eateries to be found. As far as who is hiring, I would not have any idea who was hiring sorry.

For our local listings see : www.timesfreepress.com
and maybe jobs on yahoo, they show 295 listings today for Chattanooga.

Cleveland is a nice area and just up the freeway from us. Renting is a great idea so you find your niche!

Thank's so much for your response
It's a little more ammunition I have, to use on my husband on WHY to look into checking into TN, for a possible move. He's just very down, because of job promises, not happening here in PA. I understand, and feel for him
But, we are still young enough, to turn this ship around, and make it better.
It's definately not a lost cause....yet.
Thank's again, for the little light at the end of the tunnel........
