house hunting in Farragut is the worst housing mar
We recently were transferred to East Tennessee and chose the Knoxville are, Farragut to be exact, to call home. Not happy about once again leaving my full life to start another, but always have found house hunting to be a joy. Well not here. The housing market is completely over priced, old, worn out, houses, that have never been updated, and the construction practices here are criminal. Homes are filled with radon, the air is polluted, the water has radio active wastes in it, and one has to live along side of Oakridge National Lab. Now you would think that with all of the negative here, one would be able to get a bargain in real estate, not so. I have never been so underwhelmed with housing until here. We did "settle" for a POS because we were running out of time, and dealing with the home owner who acted as though she was doing us a favor by ripping us off, has really sunk the experience to new lows. I have no intention of going to the walk through, and if I can be absent from the closing, I will opt for that.
I am beyond sad to have given up a beautiful home and neighborhood, clean air and great water, and a full life, to be treated so badly here. All I can say now is KARMA baby to the dirtbags.
