For these reasons, Generation X home buyers in Chattanooga might want to consider neighborhoods like Signal Mountain, East Brainerd, Red Bank, and North Chattanooga. All of these areas are economically diverse and offer access to better ranked schools, and proximity to private or magnet schools. They are also convenient to shopping, gyms, and family activities like parks, movie theaters, and outdoor attractions. With the exception of Signal Mountain and East Brainerd, all these neighborhoods have especially short commutes to downtown Chattanooga of around just 10 minutes.

Downtown neighborhoods like Highland Park or St. Elmo are also worth considering despite the still struggling nearby schools. The schools for many downtown neighborhoods are not yet recovered, but major progress is being made. For families willing to weather those improvements as they are being made, or are engaged in magnet or private schools these neighborhoods offer a great opportunity to get a lot of house for the money with historic details that, in just a few years, will be far more pricy as home values increase. Such neighborhoods are a great investment.
