We are considering retiring from Central Florida to Tennessee (as all Floridians seem to be). Greeneville is a city that we are interested in and we plan on making a short stop there on our way to Ohio next month, just to get a quick glimpse of the area. We probably will spend a couple of hours and have lunch there. I know that this is a real short amount of time, but can anyone think of anything in particular that we should take a look at while we are there?

Thanks!

Default Quirt111

Hi Quirt111. I have sent you a personal message with more of an explanation of what kind of information I am looking for.

For anyone else who might see this, I'm looking for any information on the downtown area, the college campus, main day to day shopping area(s), indications on the general economic health of the area (empty buildings/businesses), any particularly scenic areas around/any particularly bad areas, etc

Default Me too!

Hi, I don't want to steal the thread, but my husband I are are also interested in Greeneville and the surrounding area. We want at least 30 acres (the more the better) and my husband would want to work part-time as a CPA. I board horses in Florida and would like to do the same in TN on a small scale. We like the amenities of Greeneville, but would like to live "outside" of town. I worry about picking the wrong "out of town" spot as I have told that some little areas don't care for outsiders and I worry that the realtor would not know, or just not disclose that bit of info.

Any info would be greatly appreciated.

....My wife & I are very interested in exploring the prospect of retiring to Greeneville and, as such, are NOT interested in , Golf , Jobs, Schools or Large Property ( don't want anything over 1/2 acre ), or 2 Car Garage.....We ARE interested in Affordable Housing ( What is average cost of 3 Bedroom, 2 Bath House in Greeneville ? ); Good Healthcare ( How far are you from Good Hospitals ? ) ; Retirement Activities ( Lakes, Nearby Shopping/Dining ? ).....We are more interested in Houses situated in the vicinity of ( not on top of ) Mountains, Forests, etc. rather than Houses situated in specific School Districts ----Would you consider Greeneville to be " retirement friendly " ?? If so, How ??

We have been involved in Greeneville now for 3.5 yrs. We bought our land then and had our house built and finally moved here full time in May 06. We all love it so far. Average 3/2 home I would say for a nice place could be had for around $125,000-$150,000. Modular doublewides less than that. There are 2 good hospitals right downtown. Greeneville is oriented around family life and family culture. Yes there is the "locals" type close knit shell that might seem hard to penetrate at 1st but if you give it some effort and treat people the way you would wish to be treated you can fit in just fine but keep in mind that there are many people moving here now that the "locals" are becoming the minority, most days I meet more people who have moved here from other places than I do locals. There are plenty of retirees here and more seem to be moving in on a daily basis, I dont mean people over 62 yrs old but ret military, civil service etc, people semi retiring in their 40s. Plenty of Walgrees, CVS and QUALITY food shopping, Ingles is every bit as good and better than Publix any day with the exception of Publix bakery, I can attest to Ingles/Publix comparison from 25 yrs of being forced to eat Publix tough grizzly meat and rotted gas ripened produce then finally get a chance to eat some quality food on a regular basis. The area is growing I have noticed that in the past 3 yrs but what area is not.
