True, but in retirement, you’re not buying as much “stuff” (even our food budget because the nest is empty).

You also aren't typically earning as much income so the lack of an income tax isn't as beneficial. Just pointing out that TN still gets its tax money but in a different way than in states like SC or NC.

Athens, TN is a nice small town and one I would certainly consider for retirement. I'd love to live in East TN but the job opportunities have never really lined up for me there.

What area did you decide to focus on? I’d recommend Caine Coldwell Banker in Spartanburg.

Spartanburg is a possibility, as is Simpsonville, Greer and Easley. Just looking for something simple, nothing fancy, don't swim so I don't need a swimming pool, somewhere to work out (Planet Fitness would do), close to grocery stores, I do like interacting with other people, even those not my age.

I agree with you on the last point- we didn't want a 55+ community because we enjoy being with people of all ages. Our neighborhood, with the small lots, does tend to attract empty nesters but there are families here as well.

So, I visited and like what I saw of the Greenville area. I like Rolling Green village and Pebble Springs Manufactured homes. What does anyone know about Wellford. Seems like a nice, small place close to Greer.

Wellford is between Spartanburg and Greer and part of the DLW (better known as Duncan, Lyman, Wellford). These 3 smallish towns are growing fairly rapidly because BMW is right down the street as are lots of the feeder manufacturing plants. GSP (Greenville-Spartanburg Int'l) is 5-6 miles away. You are also very close to the west side of Spartanburg. Lots of shopping, restaurants, grocery stores, movie theaters, etc. here.

However you are somewhat insulated out there as there isn't a whole lot within 1-2 miles of you. Just ranch style houses and 1 story bungalows in a couple of established neighborhoods. There are however a couple of old mill town neighborhoods that have sort of deteriorated since the mills closed 20 some years ago. You would want to be careful of those (I think its Tucapau and Startex). The slightly bigger town of Lyman does have nicer mill town houses. I'd look at all of the DLW area.
