Cheap Land in Georgia in the Blue Ridge Mountains
Located atop the heart of the Blue Ridge Mountains and the gateway to the Smokies, Ridges of Rabun is a protected mountainside community that offers breathtaking views. Black Rock Mountain State Park is only 7 miles away, as is a vast array of other outdoor adventure opportunities.
- Priced about 18% below market
- Surrounded by Natural Beauty – Trails, Waterfalls, Rivers, Parks
- HOA-protected Community
- Paved Road Access
- Major Retail & Walmart only 10 mins away
- Power & Water Available
- Natural Spring Runs thru Property
- Very Quiet – end of cul-de-sac
PROPERTY: This mountainous 2.71 acre lot inside the HOA-protected Ridges of Rabun community features about 310 feet of direct frontage on paved Green Meadows Drive, and features a natural spring that cascades all the way down the property. There are no structures on site but despite the overall slope of the property, a somewhat flatter pad site does exist towards the front and west side of the property to accomodate a home. Since power and water run along the road frontage, the whole package is very build-ready. The immediate neighborhood is still only lightly built-out and very peaceful. You have a laundry list of natural adventure spots to explore though. Black Rock Mountain State Park, to name just one, is only 15 minutes down the road through Clayton. Clayton is a very quaint mountain town not unlike the other charming and rustic towns along this gap through the Blue Ridge Mountains, garnished with local boutiques, lodges, vineyards, and antique shops. Still, big box retail like Walmart and Home Depot is there when you need it as well. With downtown Atlanta only two hours away, this property places you in that “Goldilocks” zone — close enough to the big city when you need it, but far enough away to enjoy unbridled peace and natural beauty.

FOR SALE BY OWNER: We are investors, and are selling this lot For-Sale-By-Owner. You do not need to submit your offer through a real estate agent, and in our experience we close transactions more quickly and easily by having our dedicated transaction coordinator work directly with the Title Company and Buyers. We will also both save money on commission/fees by cutting out agents as the middle men. However, if you feel strongly about working with a Realtor, then you’re welcome to have them contact us on your behalf.
OWNER FINANCING: We do not offer owner-financing but you could get a loan through a bank or another lender and we’d be happy to coordinate with them.
OUTSIDE FINANCING: Your best deal for financing will come from a local bank or credit union and we can help you find a great deal. Land loans typically require about 15-25% down.
WHY ARE YOU SELLING IT SO CHEAP? We are often asked why our properties are priced below market value, and the answer is really simple: we choose to sell to you at wholesale prices. We are investors who purchase properties at a large volume and discounted rates, and we strongly believe in passing this discount on to our buyers.
DISCLAIMER: We attempt to provide detailed, accurate and up-to-date information in our listings, in order to help our buyers to the best of our ability. However, it ultimately remains the buyer’s responsibility to perform their own due diligence and double check any details that are of significant importance to you including acreage, utilities, build-ability, and approved/allowable use-age for the property. We are happy to help however we can.
The information within this listing is posted by a private or third-party seller and we do not guarantee the accuracy of the information enclosed. We encourage to always verify ownership and property details listed. As a precaution, due diligence in any real estate transaction is encouraged and closing through a verified title company is advised. To the maximum extent permitted by law we do not accept any responsibility to any person for the accuracy of the information herein.
