Would like to buy a flat piece of land, in safe area, outskirts of Chattanooga or another suggested area reasonably priced (3/4 to 1 acre) for building purposes later on, preferably not from a Real Estate Agent as they hike the prices tremendously. Anyone have suggestions?

You could always look to the Tri-Cities area. There is some very affordable land in the Church Hill, Surgoinsville, Mount Carmel and some other very beautiful areas. I am assuming you had a bad experience with a Realtor, I have too, but we have some really good ones around here that are very honest. This is why I suggest to everyone to use a buyers agent, that way they are looking out for your best interests and no one else's. No I am not a Realtor. Full disclosure, I am a Mortgage Broker so I have dealt with a LOT of Realtors locally, I do know the good ones and the not so good ones.

Hi, I live in Dunlap, TN about 25 miles NW of Chattanooga. Dunlap is in Sequatchie Valley which sits in a valley between Fredonia and Flat Top mountains. My husband built us a log home on Flat Top Mnt. 4 years ago. There is lots of property for sale here, from 6,000 to 20,000 per acre. Our place is 3 acres wooded, restricted to homes 1500+ s.f. with a paved residential road, county water and electric. We paid $6,500 in 2003 (now it's about $9,000 per acre. Dunlap is about 7,000 population and still has the real hometown feel about it. We love it - we moved here from OK. Love the weather - very little snow, no tornados, no dustbowl winds and loads of TREES!

Someone told me you get a couple of snows a year with minimal accumulation. Did you get much snow this past year? After living in south Florida for the past 22 years, a little snow will be welcome when we move.

Of course, we moved to Florida to get away from the lake effect snows of the Great Lakes region so go figure?!
