I would like to be by the moutains (or on one!), because there is less threat of flooding or tornadoes, and because they're beautiful! I would like to have a minimum of an acrea, with a nice little house. Nothing grade. At least 3 bedrooms, 2 baths, and nothing less than 1600 square feet. Anything like that for under $200K, and if so what areas of Tennessee??

There are several like that in East TN. Check out: Greeneville, Telford, Rogersville, Surgoinsvillle, Bean Station, Afton, Jonesborough and in that general area. You best bet would be to contact a bank or mortgage broker or Realtor to find out exactly how much you can afford and be comfortable with monthly payment wise, how much down payment if any you will need, etc. before you find a place you fall in love with. But there are many like that under 200k in East TN. Email me if you would like. I would be happy to help in any way I can.

I'd like to recommend the area of bledsoe county in southeast tennessee. My little town is Pikeville and we are right in the center of a small valley. You can defintely find a home in your price range here with a little shopping around.

The valley is approximately 5 miles wide so you will be looking at mountains on both sides of you. The cumberland plateau (with Fall Creek Falls) is to the west and walden's ridge is east of town.

I can get you more info if needed. Just let me know. Kerry

Kerry, being in a valley, do you ever get flooded, due to the rain falling down the mountains?

Thumbs up Flooding

The sequatchie river does flood but this is primarily into the river bottoms that doesn't have anything there to be affected. Once in a while the river will make it up and over the main road towards dunlap to our south. This doesn't wash the roads out or anything--it is primarily just where a small creek has backed up to a bridge.

As far our town goes, the river doesn't affect it at all. No homes are at risk from the main river. Years ago we used to have some flooding in a small area of the town but that was fixed with a series of drainage tiles. To my knowledge there hasn't been any further problems.

Try Pelham, or even Altamont or Coalmont. All are beautiful, but Pelham is about a mile from the interstate!
