Hello I currently live in Mississippi and have been looking to move to TN, Is Greeneville all retirement? And would I be able to find a home for under 60,000? Would I be able to find anything worth living in for under 60,000 in that part of TN? Or would I be better off in Greene Co.? also is there a big difference in Washington and Sullivan Counties?
Thanks To All

No, Greeneville is not all retirement, there are a lot of young families too, but there are a lot of retirees. I can't say that I see Greeneville as being "retirement community orientated" even though it does have a lot to offer the retiree. It has an "old money" downtown district, by the Andrew Johnson homes stead museum and such. You are more likely to find a small, older house in town for under 60k than anywhere else I would think. But you might also run into "in town,= more populated area=more likelihood for crime" You would also have both city and county tax in town. This goes the same for Greeneville, Washington and Sullivan Counties. Yes they are different, Washington and Sullivan Counties seem to be a bit more expensive housing cost wise, but no a whole lot different. I would consider living downtown Greeneville and maybe Kingsport, but not Johnson City. Greene Co. is bigger and more spread out county. East Greene Co, seeming to be more expensive than West, but west you are further away from shopping and such than east, more farm land too.
