Knoxville is a great place to move to. If you live in a large, congested metropolis but you would like to live in a less congested city that has a diverse economy, Knoxville is perfect for you. You can trade congested roads, high prices, smog, and long travel destinations for a quieter, more peaceful living space, lower cost of living, and plenty of quick-access destinations, attractions, and entertainment.
Retiring in Knoxville
When most people think of retiring, they automatically think of Florida. However, it is heavily congested, you have hurricanes to deal with, and it is 85 degrees and above for most of the year. This makes it too hot to enjoy the outdoors for most of the year. In addition, the cost of living is much higher.
On the other hand, Knoxville is a great place to retire. The cost of living is much lower, which includes housing, taxes, and general living expenses. Your retirement dollars will go much further in Knoxville. There are plenty of lakes and rivers to enjoy, as well as parks and trails to hike and explore. There are numerous locations within the city, but there are a tremendous amount of places to see in the surrounding areas, all a short drive from Knoxville and the surrounding areas.
The Knoxville area has no shortage of lake living opportunities. There are many different bodies of water in and around Knoxville. Some of the best lakes around are Cherokee Lake Chilhowee Lake, Cove Lake, Douglas Lake, Fort Loudon Lake, Melton Hill Lake, Norris Lake, Tellico Lake, Watts Bar Lake.

Jon & Dawn Powell
We are a husband and wife team dedicated to providing the best real estate concierge services.
5 stars are not enough! Jon and Dawn helped us through a complicated, time sensitive relocation. They not only met our real estate needs, they spent a considerable amount of time showing us the area, provided information on local services, and recommended skilled craftsmen. Their passion, commitment, and devotion to our needs sets them apart from others in the real estate profession. We were particularly impressed when Jon emphasized he would always be our real estate agent….and neighbor…..even though we had closed on our home. True to his word, a year later, he’s still available!
Jon was outstanding during the sell of my house! I could not have sold my house, especially for the value I received. without them. They invest into the people they represent. Truly, they care. People are not profits to them. I’ve been mislead and left in the dark by bigger real estate companies. Not once was I ever left int he dark or felt excluded by Jon or Marcia. Knoxville Real Estate Professionals sincerely have their client’s best interest in mind. I highly recommend them to anyone. The moment we decide to put our current house on the market, they are my first call.
We moved from Atlanta and were looking for someone in real estate who could handle our unique situation (delayed closing, sale of Atlanta home and purchase of the Knoxville home). Jon and his staff made our experience seamless and we heartily recommend his team to anyone looking for a home in Knoxville!
