That's wonderful! I hope everything works out for you!

Believe me, this isn't a contest. The last thing we want to read is a diatribe about how someone hates Tennessee and it's all our fault.

Knoxville will remind you of Kingston. I'm from across the river- Germantown area. Just a heads up. Tennessee rural is not NY rural at all.
Best of luck in your search,
Pam

You might also want to check to see how many tornados frequent this area...take it from me ( being from the west coast) I am still not comfortable during tornado season. Lots of folks here in middle Tn still have the underground storm shelters ( ala Wizard of Oz) . I don't have a basement..but I have a middle bathroom with no windows.
There are venemous snakes too ( Eastern Diamondback, Copperheads, Pygmy Rattlers & Cotton mouth water moccasins) so if you don 't like snakes, don't move too far out into the woods.

You can get a tornado anywhere. Even the northeast gets them.

But in the scheme of things, Knoxville gets a heck of a lot less than Middle Tennessee. i don't know of anyone that has a tornado shelter. Not one.

I don't want to be rude, but I wonder why you replied to this thread. If you don't like Middle Tennessee, I understand. There's a reason why I didn't move there. But your misery has nothing to do with Knoxville.

And if you don't think there are poisonous snakes on the west coast you are sadly mistaken. There are poisonous snakes everywhere, too. I use to live in Florida, which has many more poisonous everything. However, I encountered more snakes living in the northeast.

True, east knox county is less populated than anywhere else. Some people like it but it is usual not the most desirable area. My guess is someone's trying to sell their mother's house. This is their only post. Beware.

Congrats, edamms!

Still be sure to visit first. I feel better that you are not looking in tullahoma.

You are a northeasterner, like i it seems. Remember my story of renting in north knox county. I was 15 minutes from downtown but a world away.

Knoxville and chattanooga are more like very large towns in feel. It's a good thing. It's very homey. Knoxville is very, very friendly. But 15 to 30 minutes away can be very rural and an entirely different mindset. I think you'll find that the suburbs of both cities to feel like nice, friendly towns. Visit and see for yourself.

Once again, congrats!
what are the reasons that e. Knoxville is cheaper? Why is it not the most desirable area?

Why would any area be cheaper than another, in any city or area? Simply, desirability. Why is East Knox not the most desirable area? Many of those reasons have been enumerated previously and you could reread them.
