TrueSouth lists commercial, transitional and HBU properties in Georgia and Alabama.

We also include in this group a relatively new classification of real estate that we call “transitional” or “HBU” (highest and best use) property.

Transitional, aka, HBU property is real estate that is near growing urban areas but that hasn’t yet been developed for other than ag and/or recreational use.  Timberland, cattle farms, cropland, etc. is being developed for commercial/retail and/or residential use.  We can all see many examples of this near Atlanta, Birmingham, Auburn, Montgomery, Columbus, GA and other cities and metropolitan areas that have seen their surrounding agricultural land “transition” to their “highest and best use.”  Just look at North Georgia!

Admittedly, it is open for debate whether a commercial development, for example, is a higher and better use for a tract of timberland.  But, as agents for our seller/client, we are mainly concerned with what approach will bring our selling client the highest return the property.  HBU, as used here, refers to the highest and best “value” use.

Georgia and Alabama are experiencing robust economic expansion.  If we can help you find or sell a commercial, transitional or HBU property, please contact us.

If you have what you believe may be transitional/HBU property that may be developed into retail and other commercial use and/or a new subdivision with nice, new homes, give us a call or email us.  We have experience with these types of properties and can give you a no-obligation evaluation.
