Homes Outside Savannah Georgia

The Savannah, Georgia area is known for monumental southern hospitality!  But it isn’t just the big city that brings southern charm home for residents. In fact, many people choose to purchase homes outside the Savannah city limits. Where should you look? Well, allow me to introduce you to two communities that might just make the difference between buying a property and coming home. They are the cities of Hinesville and Richmond Hill, Georgia.

So you probably already know about Savannah.  Ranking as Georgia’s fourth largest city, this Atlantic seaport offers everything that a modern American city can offer and so much more. The rich history dates back to 1733 and once served as the colonial and state capitals.  Now, there is a vibrant business community that is creating a great future for area residents.

Hinesville, Georgia is a city of about 33,000 people privileged to live near the Atlantic coastline. The mild climate year round, the historical buildings and friendly people make Hinesville the perfect place to enjoy a small time feel but still have access to all the best that a metropolitan area can offer. 

Hinesville has great schools, local businesses, churches and plenty of parks and trails to ensure that there is something for nearly everyone.  Properties here are still a great value and show great promise of earning their owners a healthy profit in the years ahead.  If you want to live in a place with all the conveniences but that still understands the value of small town living, Hinesville, Georgia might be just the place for you!

Richmond Hill, Georgia is located just 20 miles from Savannah and is counted as one of the fasted growing communities in the country. That’s not hard to understand. There are so many charming aspects to living here. Fort Stewart is also just around the corner.

The streets are quite a contrast to the congestion in Savannah. Here, there is a great emphasis on outdoor living with hiking and biking paths and plenty of parks that allow you to take in the great scenery.  

Whether you appreciate traditional southern architecture or simply want to take in Georgia's colonial coast, Richmond Hill is a very pleasant place to call home. Right now, you can purchase some great homes at very reasonable prices. If you want access to the greater Savannah area but don’t want to surrender yourself to urban living, consider buying your next home in the greater Savannah area. If you do, you’re sure to love both Richmond Hill and Hinesville!
