We have had our IL property on the market for a while now and are still web-surfing for areas in TN that would suit our needs. We are more interested in the land than the house but the house also has to be livable! We would love at least 1500 sq. ft. and a basement would be great for storage. The land is the most important thing though. We would like at least 20 acres, mostly wooded and secluded. Also, we want to be within 15 minutes of a town large enough to have a Walmart and medical care. Within an hour of Nashville would work fine.

Oh - and no manufactured homes please. Modular is fine though.

More wants but not necessary would be a pond or creek on the land and hardwoods. My husband loves to hunt and I garden. We are in our 70's and ready to live in a more affordable place with a better climate than IL.

How much do you plan to spend?

What I would do is go to Realtracs.com, select (one at a time) each of the counties around Davidson County, where Nashville is located, and enter your criteria.

See what comes up. If you click on the address for each listing, it shows you a map of the location. If you click on "bird's eye," you can see an aerial photo showing how much of the property actually is wooded, and if there are any TVA or natural gas easements on it, etc.

Most of the big cities in each county have a Wal-Mart.


Once you narrow it down to a county, you should select a realtor to help you.

Also, FYI, if you keep at least 15 of the acres fully wooded, you may qualify for a greenbelt property tax exemption.
