The current issue of "Where to Retire" magaine lists “8 low cost towns with great home buys”.
Not surprisingly my city of Knoxville, Tennessee is one of them; in fact one of the few things below average around here are home prices.
The National Association of Realtors lists $143,000 as the median price of homes in the area with the average cost of a new, 4 bedroom home at $175,520.
No state income tax, low cost of living, lots of things to do, and temperate weather with four distinct seasons of year were all factors in selecting Knoxville as one of the eight low cost towns.
If you're approching or considering where to retire Knoxville, Tennessee has a lot to offer you.
