  •  Deadly phrase: "Highest and best use". Refers (2+ / 0-)

    to land, term used by developers, RE Brokers, etc.

    Implies that shopping centers, housing subdivisions count for more than ag use. Based pretty much on tax ratables, IIRC!!

    Encountered that phrase-- and concept-- in a real estate agents exam course. Passed exam, obtained license (Penna.), sponsored by broker, congenial office atmosphere -- but I felt like a traitor: to the land, all land, any land!!

    Quit about 6 weeks later!!
