Replying to Iamtiredofth...because it makes the most sens out of all the other replies. The statement "Part of this is due to #1. More pension-retirees have moved into this area from northern states."
Being a pension retiree in one of the northern states tells me that East TN (Knox County) is NOT overpriced. What nobody gets is that these pension retirees moved into TN because their northern states have such a high cost of living and its difficult living there on a retired income (pension). TN is one of 9 states that do NOT collect income taxes. Well, every single northern state collects income taxes BUT these states allow retirees with state or local pensions to not allow income taxes be deducted. This means their gross and net pension checks are the same because there are no state income taxes collected. So as a retiree what do you do? If the cost of living is too high in one of the northern states, you sell your home and retire where its cheaper AND choose a state that does not collect income tax. That leaves 9 states - Alaska, Washington, Wyoming, Nevada, South Dakota, Texas, Florida, New Hampshire AND Tennessee. Out of these states, which have warm weather, sunny days, cheap housing, low cost of living and friendly people: Nevada, Texas, Florida and Tennessee. Cross off Florida because of the Zika virus and hurricanes. That leaves 3 states. Gee, Tennessee is looking really good right now.
I disagree with the Baby Boomer generation dying off. As a BabyBoomer myself, we eat healthy, exercise and are in great physical shape. No chance of dying off anytime soon. Just look at Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump! Also Dolly Parton, Cher, Whoopi Goldberg, Oprah Winfrey, Meryl Streep, etc. I rest my case.
As for the high sales tax in TN - no problem. Sales tax where I live in NY is 8.75%.... more

Because Trulia/Zillow are not syndicated by the NAR, their information is more limited. It is usually more reliable to contact a local agent and allow them to set up a more precise notification system on your behalf to cut out a lot of the properties that miss the mark of the water feature you are looking to purchase. I would be happy to assist you if you are still interested.... more

When Realtors enter a listing into the MLS data base they often post incorrect data into the parcel size menu. If Realtors used the default to local county public records (as posted by the tax assessors office) then the data would be correct.... more
It is likely a scammer - I am a homeowner who just found my OWN home listed on Trulia as a rental ???? The scammer copped my information from a Make Me Move listing on Zillow that I did yesterday. Thankfully, a Zillow consumer contacted me today and informed me that my home was available on Trulia for the ridiculously low price of $700/month rent. BEWARE!!! Of course, I can't get Trulia to answer their phone to resolve this issue.... more
I have been looking into getting a specialist for my pain management. I have been having a lot of pain and I would like to be able to manage it. I have been looking into it and it seems like lots of people deal with pain everyday and they can manage their pain. I would like to learn how to do that because I have a condition that can't be changed by a surgeon or medication.
Have you tried a local lender yet, to see if you qualify for a mortgage? I recommend calling one to see what you can qualify for. Renting with a multi-pet family is difficult but there are a few that do so. See if you qualify for a mortgage with a local company, especially if you are transferring in your line of work. Feel free to email me and I can suggest a few options. Have a great day!... more
