Have I missed anything?
You missed the hunting. How could you forget the hunting? Oh, and the lack of bus service and cowboy outfits.

Boy, that list just keeps getting longer.

Exactly why is it these people want to move here?

Oh, that right, it's all about money.

Nissan is building their new North American headquarters in Williamson County. Until the building is completed, they are renting space in downtown Nashville.

Tennessee has a lot of things going for it. I used to live in SW Florida. I'm glad I'm in Tennessee.

I use to live in Fort Myers. I think George Bush was misinformed. Southwest Florida is definitely part of the axis of evil!

OK you and LauraC have made me laugh. I love y'all's posts! Thanks for turning a blustery, windy day into a funny one! I just came inside because I needed a break from the bad mood: the wind tore down part of my fence (just snapped the posts in half!) so that now the people at the church next door have a clear view into my back yard and back porch. And goodness knows we don't like church-going people around here to know anything about our private life. So I came in for a little break and read y'all's posts, and now I feel all better again. Thanks!!

Yes, it could be like an extended border patrol fence! Excellent idea. I think you should run for Governor!

Thanks for the laugh, too!

Seems like TN is getting pretty desirable. I cant believe how low the prop. taxes and insurance are! Seriously only $385 a year for a $130k house? Thats less than 1/3 percent a year! Even in the northeast the insurers want like 1%, I have a friend paying $400 a year on a $40k house, no way would I pay that much insurance, ill just self insure if they want too much but $385 a year is very reasonable! Is prop. taxes really just 1%? Wow I could probably afford more than $50k of house with such low taxes/insurance!

Even in Oil city where I got my sight set, a $50k house carries $1500 a year prop taxes and a nice $100k house would be $3000 a year! Plus TN has no state income tax and mild winters(albet miserable summers) I would save like $3000 a year living in TN over Oil city, PA due to no state income tax and lower prop. taxes. A $50k mortgage costs $316.03 a month, a $100k mortgage double that. If I save $3000 a year living in TN, thats $250 a month therefore I could afford a $90k house in TN for the same cost as a $50k house in Oil city!


Oil city $50k house, $1500 taxes
TN $90k house, $700 taxes(is this true?)

NAH, are you following me? We just started checking out Tn. last night and it looks nice there. (Still love those palms and beaches, though, BUT Tn. seems to definitely be worth checking out.)

I recognize several people on here from the Fla. board. You all relocated to Tn. from Fla.? This must be a sign or something.
