Hi
We are considering a move to North Ga. Do any of you know about Dade County? I like the idea of acerage at a resonable price. My wife likes the idea that we are not far from the cities in Tennessee, Alabama. Thanks.

If I worked in Chatanooga, I'd live in Dade County - probably on Lookout Mountain. But, it is rather difficult to get from Dade County to Atlanta. This is both good and bad. For those of you who don't want Greater Atlanta to gobble up North Georgia - this is not likely to happen to the Northwest corner. This is because the topography really makes Dade County more a part of Alabama and/or Tennessee. There is some beautiful land up in those parts.


On the other hand, I think this is also why land prices have not appreciated as much as they have around Blue Ridge, and in Rabun County. Accessibility to Atlanta definitely drives these markets.

Thanks. I like the idea that Atlanta influence will be minimal. I live in Florida now about 1 hour north of Tampa ;10 years ago it was very nice and a place to raise a family. Now that they have built the suncoast parkway my house appreciated but the area is not that nice anymore. The develpoers have squeezed in too many houses. I want an area where the chances of this happening again minimal. This time I want 2-3 acres so I do not have to hear my neighbor clearing his throat!

You can't ever have enough acerage! Two to three won't satisfy you - better get 10 just to be sure. That way if the developers ever do come, you can subdivide, sell out and move.

That is a good idea. The prices on land are so much more affordable than Florida. Building lots here 80X100 are going for like 40K!

Default Lookout Mountain

We are moving this year out of Dade County due to careers and we like the coastal area.

I have lived most of my years here (Lookout Mountain) never locked my car, house, nor anything else.... The New Salem area and West Brow area on Lookout are growing in a great way and still reasonable in price...

My father developed Lookout Highlands which is also near Canyon Ridge the new golf course development. I prefer to live a bit closer in though....West Brow almost 20 miles closer in (to Chattanooga) than those developments...

There are locals who own B & Bs or cabins- Covenant Colleges' website usually has a list of accommodations. Also make sure to eat at Canyon Grill in New Salem- locals from Dade that know how to create a whole fried catfish from head to toe but also have ground mignon with blue cheese crumbles and crab cakes that are all crab and not much cake and the best part BYO beer or wine.... The New Salem Festival also shows how dade is moving in quite a bit of artist which is neat... Good luck!
