My wife and I are wanting to move to Johnson City area or on the outskirts next spring. And while I can look on Zillow and other websites to see all the developments in the newer houses I’m wondering if anybody here has some pointers of who are really quality builders or quality developments that we could be directed to. We’re coming from Connecticut and we still want to work in the region For sometime, my wife is a registered nurse and on my license alcohol and drug counselor, we’re both trying to transition our licenses to Tennessee at this point. Thanks for any input regarding housing and builders

Based on some of the posts you've made in other threads, it's hard to pin down exactly what you are looking for but I'll give it a shot.

If you are wanting to be in a "development" you might consider:
*Crown Colony - east kpt
*Ridgefields - Kingsport near Bays Mtn
*Daniel’s Ridge - a new one in Gray under construction
*The Ridges in JC is probably out of price range.

If you're looking for a single family home on a lake, spring, creek, or river:
*A place on Boone Lake (JC) is going to be a bargain right now. The lake is "down" due to repairs on the dam. Repairs should take 3-5 years but home prices on Boone Lake are "on sale" due to its current condition.
*Patrick Henry Lake (South Kingsport/Colonial Heights) is the only area lake that does not have a fluctuating level meaning it is "up" year round.
*For streams and springs look in the area east of Bloomingdale. This area is convenient to the Bristol and Kpt hospital systems.
*Other good possibilities: Piney Flats, Watauga, Elizabethton, Blountville, Bristol (especially toward S Holston Lake and Sullivan East area) there is a little park out there called Osceola Island that is just amazing.

We are looking to possibly relocate to the area as well. We currently have a large retention pond and woods as our backyard. Where might I find an equivalent in JC/Kpt? Where is most prone to flooding? Looking at 250-300k range.

There are little ponds and wooded areas all over the TRI area. Most of the streams and rivers have the potential to flood but it's very localized. The dam and reservoir system prevents more widespread flooding like you see on the national news. Just stick to the high ground and you'll be fine. One thing to look out for are basements that flood. Houses need to have proper gutters, slope, and drainage.
