Black Creek's Unique Location

by Doug Stein

There’s a saying in the real estate business that only 3 things are important in a piece of property: location, location, and location. We have also heard, since the movie “Field of Dreams” debuted, “if you build it, they will come.” Here at Black Creek, we are building a unique, vibrant community wherein multiple generations will be able to find a home, in a location that cannot be replicated, for the following reasons:

Black Creek is in the Southeast.

  • 4 mild seasons

  • Centrally located within the US

  • Beautiful countryside

  • Many outdoor options

  • Friendly people

Within the Southeast, Black Creek is in Tennessee.

  • No income tax.

  • Low property tax.

  • The Volunteer State is noted for its independence and clear thinking; hence our more moderate political atmosphere than found in other Southern states.

  • Tennessee has a broad range of geography.

  • Tennessee’s educational system is outperforming other states in the Southeast.
