  • I live in Alabama and work in Chattanooga, It really is a beautiful place. The only thing I don't like is the crime rate. and some of the homes are pretty expensive. I'm not sure where you live but, It my be a step up.

  • It really depends on what part of the city you decide to live in that will determine if you get away from what you don't like or if you wind up moving right back into it. The county schools as a whole are below average and some are also failing, others are exceptional but are magnet schools. Houses vary depending on area, while the Mountains expensive, Other areas are more reasonable. Property taxes are fair. What you will enjoy is no inclome tax, $25 car registration, plenty of shopping, recreation, nature, parks and views. What you will not enjoy is the rising unemployment, crime and the sales tax over 9%.
    I personally think you are wise to move to this area. Chattanooga and Hamilton County offer many things and make living here a great place to raise a family and have a home. Just make sure you investigate before you buy so you know that you'll be happy with the area.
