ITEM 2.  ACQUISITION OR DISPOSITION OF ASSETS

On January 4, 2001, Roberts Realty Investors, Inc. completed the sale of its
Rosewood Plantation community to Rosewood Plantation Apartments, Inc. for
$14,800,000. Rosewood Plantation is a 152-unit apartment community located in
Norcross, Georgia. Net cash proceeds were $5,818,000 (after deducting prorated
rent of approximately $73,000) after deducting:


         o $7,876,000 for the mortgage note payable, which was assumed by the
           buyer;

         o $366,000 for closing costs and prorations; and

         o $740,000 for a partnership profits interest to Roberts Properties,
           Inc., a non-owned affiliate, under the terms of the agreement of
           limited partnership of Roberts Properties Residential, L.P., through
           which Roberts Realty conducts its business.

The purchaser is unaffiliated with Roberts Realty, and the transaction was
negotiated at arms-length. In negotiating the sales price, Roberts Realty
considered, among other factors:

         o the Rosewood Plantation community's historical and anticipated cash
           flows;

         o the condition and location of the community; and

         o current market conditions.
