We have a lower cost of living than the national average which is reflected in our housing costs, transportation, and energy costs. The average cost of a home and the average monthly rent in Knoxville are well below those of larger metro areas.

Knoxville also has a lower unemployment rate than the national average but our average annual salary is lower in Knoxville than it is in other major metro areas, typically due to the high number of blue-collar jobs.

About Knoxville Tennessee

Knoxville is the county seat of Knox County and its home to about 188,000 residents, making it the largest city in East Tennessee grand division and the state's overall third largest city after Nashville and Memphis.

Knoxville is the flagship campus of the University of Tennessee, so naturally, we have more of a college town feel with a lot of entertainment options, nightlife, restaurants, bars, and activities. We've also seen a lot of renovation, specifically over the last 20 years. Since the year 2000, Knoxville's downtown area has been developing and with the opening of the Women's Basketball Hall of Fame and the Knoxville Convention Center, we have brought even more businesses back to the downtown area.

Development has also expanded across the Tennessee River on the south Knoxville waterfront and in 2006, the city adopted the South Waterfront Vision Plan to revitalize the 750-acre waterfront Park in over 3 miles of shoreline on the Tennessee River. The project's primary focus is on commercial and residential development over the next 20 years.
