Bluff View Homes
Unique to the Chattanooga area are bluff view homes. Communities on Lookout Mountain, Signal Mountain, Mowbrey Mountain, Dayton Mountain, Missionary Ridge, White Oak Mountain and Jasper Highlands among many others offer scenic views and luxury neighborhoods with awe inspiring views.
Cost of Living
Southeast Tennessee is one of the most affordable areas to live in. Mosey on down to North Georgia and you can save more.
No State Income Tax
And one of the most appealing advantages of retiring in Tennessee is NO STATE INCOME TAX!
Tennessee’s climate is another attractive advantage. Very little snow and moderate temperatures most year round make Chattanooga another excellent choice for retiring. You might see a light dusting most winters but big snows are not common. Summers can get hot and humid but are much better than states to the south of it. Overall, the climate is desirable and you will get to see seasons. Watching the trees change color in the Fall is one of the area’s attractions. Long drives through the mountains seeing all the colors is a popular past time in October and November.
