I love Gatlinburg. I lived there for a year and kick myself everyday for leaving. I know you will love it there. I too hope to move back someday soon.

Good luck with the real estate hunting. My goal is to buy a one or two room cabin or chalet and retire there. That's many years away, so I better start saving up!! LOL!

Let us know how everything works out.

Best of luck in your search for a vacation home.

I've spent quite a bit of time searching listings in the area. While the price of real estate hasn't exactly plummeted in the vicinity, there are a large number of foreclosures and short sales on the market. Many of them bank owned. And you can't beat today's interest rates.

In what area are you interested in living? I'm also curious as to which realty company you are using? I hope you will let us know how they respond to your needs. There are a few of us who could benefit from your experience with this transaction.

Does your plan involve renting out your vacation home? Will you use a rental company or manage it yourself? There are a few cabin owners that post here that might be able to advise you on such issues.

How long will you be there? I ask because you indicate in your post that your meeting is at 3:00 to check out "a" property. I sincerely hope that your realtor has lined up more than one for you to take a look at since you are making that drive. While I'm not a realtor,I'm close enough to the businesss to know that a realtor that is counting on you to snatch up the first and only property he/she shows you is probably a bit wacko.
