Eastern Tennesseehas an allure to retirees because the it has NO state income tax, a moderate four season climate and for most – they can be back to where they retired from within a day’s drive. Rarity knew they were in a desirable region and over the coming decade or two, Eastern Tennessee would become even better well known as more Baby Boomers looked for a quality place to retire and relocate. Where Rarity misjudged was how fast the buyers were coming as Baby Boomers started to retire in 2008. Rarity got ahead of themselves in development by opening up 9 communities rather than sticking with a core of 3 to 5 developments.
