Anyone have ideas on where to buy land from 5 to 40 acres that would be under 3000/ac. We love the Gatlinburg area, but know it is way to expensive to buy land there. We are retired and want to move to TN. from IL. someday with our horses. We are spending a week in Gatlinburg next month and want to spend time looking at property. Thanks

Default Hello

Well, I will be honest, I read your post and thought "can't do it" but then I looked, I was wrong. Some of these are just over 3k an acre but they are flat enough for horses. Hope this gives you an idea of land available, but you will still need to research the towns because what good will it be to find the land if you don't like the area?

Here's another site that's great. You can narrow your search or expand it as you see fit. I'd start just looking at TN, the entire state. Put in the min acreage you'd take and the max money you'd spend and go from there. That's how I found the property we're going to look at tomorrow!

ruralpropertyfinder.com

Good luck!

I reccomend Grainger County, the undiscovered gem of East Tennessee. Still very rural, but offers alot of scenic beauty.

I noticed several of MBMouse's results were in Del Rio (Cocke Co) and the surrounding areas of Greene County. That area is very, very rural, so you might really be able to find what you're looking for. Look for areas down the Newport Hwy and go deep-driving (sorta like deep-sea-diving only you keep driving and driving and driving ) off roads off the Asheville Hwy in Greene. You might find something you like!

I'm one of those Floridians invading Tennessee and I purchased 25 acres in south Greene county last April. Paid about 4800 an acre. Land is surrounded by the Cherokee National Forest. A lot of the "cheap land" is vertical, also some land will not accept a septic system. I had a friend who ran into that problem. I'm looking foreward to living there in a few years. Can't wait
