I serve the Greater Knoxville Area market. I don't specialize in Chatanooga.
Even with your budget, I think you can find something there. There are certainly many here in the Knoxville area. If you haven't already, choose a REALTOR and work with them. You may want to work with one that is a historic home specialist as they would best help you find a home with character. If you are just looking for an older home that isn't necessarily historic, then you wouldn't need a historic home specialist. If you aren't familiar with REALTORS in that area, I can recommend several. Good luck with y our search.
