A few hours from Augusta, you’ll find breathtaking views, unlimited excursions and adventures, and gorgeous cabins sweetly nestled into the mountains of Blue Ridge, Georgia. The area boasts pristine lakes and streams, hiking trails, a scenic railroad, abundant wildlife, and has become quite the foodie destination with unique, privately owned restaurants dotting the landscape. It’s a true vacation destination, making Blue Ridge the perfect area to own a mountain cabin for personal use or as an investment rental property.
Greg Martin, broker associate with Remax Town and Country, explains, “The Blue Ridge area, especially Fannin County, is the epicenter for the rental market here. It’s the first mountains you get to out of Florida and also the closest to Alabama. It’s very convenient because we’re only one hour from Atlanta and Chattanooga.” With a high demand for rentals in the area, the properties Greg manages experience a minimum of 225-250 rental nights per year.
In addition to managing rental properties and buying/selling cabins, Greg is a licensed and insured builder, which allows him to specialize in helping his clients find a cabin and if needed, remodel it to meet their needs and tastes. Greg can help in every step of the process including getting the buyer pre-qualified, facilitating the cabin purchase, subcontracting all the improvements, and finally managing the property for rental income.
Investing in a rental property does not mean all work and no play. “I think it’s very important for people to know that this cabin is for them to enjoy too,” says Greg, “A lot of people think it’s strictly for an investment and that’s not true. They can use it whenever they want.”
With protected national forest land making up almost half of the area, owners will most assuredly want to enjoy the relaxing atmosphere and exciting excursions Blue Ridge has to offer.
