When we're ready to make the move we are planning to rent for awhile before buying a house. Maybe rent for six months to a year before getting locked into a 30/yr mortgage. Just to be sure we want to stay.

We visited the Nashville area last September and were impressed with what we saw. I would be lying if I didn't acknowledge the low cost of living and cheap housing didn't play a part in our interest of the state. But beyond that we were impressed by the beauty of the area, the friendliness of the people, lots of shopping, major international airport nearby. Numerous other things I was impressed with that I can't think of at the moment. We are planning another visit soon to explore more areas. We need to be within a reasonable driving distance to Nashville as my wife is a RN and will be working at one of the major hospitals in the city. I'm self employed and therefore can live anywhere. We're taking our time and not making any rush decisions. Doing lots of research. You are welcome to PM me with any additional questions.

KewlGuy,

I found the people in TN very friendly, more than in other Southern Cities--Atlanta or
Charlotte....

Kewl, and All 3 states came here. California with the Nissan relocation. Michigan with the poor ecconomy, and NJ with all the govt. Corruption and high taxes.
I go to this Country Cafe in Christins, right outside of Murfreesboro where Steve anf my Children live, and across from it is a gift shop, with owners that moved from NJ. They live in the small town of Bellbuckle, TN which is about 50 minutes south of Nashville.

Default Nashville

Nashville is full of life!
You just have to know where to look
There are youth sports everywhere.
I live in the Hermitage / Mt Juliet area.
Mt. Juliet is one of the fastest growing areas around Nashville right now and is in between 2 lakes.

That's all I hear about the Nashville area...ALL GOOD! To be honest, I have been researching going down South for a while now. I first started looking into NC, but their is much negativity stated on-line about the area. On the contrary for Nashville...all great feedback - can't wait to relocate!

My husband and I lived in Nashville for a year (my husband's job). We are living back in NJ now and still think of moving back to TN. We have friends that still live there and after a lot of planning have moved to Mt. Juliet and love it there. They say the schools are great and the area is very family oriented. Theyve also recommended franklin and brentwood and told us to stay clear of Antioch (Gang violence and crime is high), Murfreesboro and Smyrna. Some of their clients moved to the area (murfreesboro and smyrna), built new homes to have been robbed by neighbors tennants living in the basement of the house illegally (illegally in the country from mexico)

What makes you think you can't find illegals like that in Mt. Juliet? Nowhere is immune and it would be foolish for anyone to think that. I moved from NJ to Nashville in 94 and Nashville to Murfreesboro in 2000. It's paradise compared to skanky NJ.

NJ is full of illegal aliens. Where do you think those criminals were living that changed all our lives forever. They even had NJ driving licences.
