TrueSouth Properties lists residential properties for sale in Georgia and Alabama

These include existing homes, country and rural homes with acreage, mini-farms, estates, cabins, camphouses, weekend getaways, and other residential real estate.  Further, our residential listings include homesites, residential development property, mixed recreational and residential and other lots and tracts that have residential potential.

A prime new classification of real estate in Georgia and Alabama is what we call “transitional” or “HBU” (highest and best use) property.

Transitional, aka, HBU property is real estate that has historically been rural, located away from urban areas.  As our cities and suburbs have expanded, these farms, timber tracts, and such have been developed for commercial/retail and/or residential use.  Atlanta, Birmingham, Auburn, Montgomery, Columbus, GA and others are examples of cities/metropolitan areas that have seen their surrounding agricultural land “transition” to their “highest and best use.”  North Georgia has many areas that offer excellent examples of this trend.

Now, we can discuss whether a residential development, for example, is a higher and better use for a piece of land than, say, a farm.  But, for our purposes as a real estate firm working for our clients, we generally consider the highest and best use of a property to be that which brings our selling client the highest return for his/her/their property.  So, HBU, for us, refers to the economically highest and best use.

Our two states of Alabama and Georgia offer a wonderful mix of rural and urban living opportunities.  Whether you are looking for a cabin on a pond with some acreage to hike, hunt and/or fish, or you are looking for a wonderful home in one of the markets we serve, give us a call or an email.

If you have “transitional” property that you think may be developed into mini-farms, shopping and commercial areas and/or residential subdivision development, give us a call or email us for a no-obligation evaluation.  Our agents have experience with these properties and can give you an informed opinion of your properties’ potential.
