Decatur GA Pending Home Sales Statistics by Price Range Decatur GA Pending home sales statistics by price range. Have you ever wondered what homes are selling in Decatur GA? What DeKalb County home price ranges are most sought after? Well you are not alone, but it is often hard to find this information, so I decided to create a chart to share exactly what homes are selling in Decatur GA. Yes mortgage rates are low, but many buyers in this market are being cautious and when purchasing a home are being conservative with their money. Some Decatur GA home owners are downsizing selling their large Decatur Luxury Estate Homes and buying Decatur GA homes.

Real estate sales for housing in Atlanta and Decatur homes are brisk, with some properties selling before they are actively on the market.  Homes in Decatur are at a particular premium and there is a reasonable explanation. Decatur is a fun place to live - has excellent schools, and  it’s own municipal services like first class Police and Fire Departments.  In addition, the City of Decatur sponsors so many local events and festivals throughout the year, it’s hard to keep track of everything you could attend. For example, the Decatur Arts Festival was held this past Memorial Day weekend and is a perennial favorite, drawing crowds from throughout the metropolitan Atlanta area.  Lively entertainment, beautiful weather, and lovely exhibits combine to make this event especially successful. ...

Decatur, Georgia, has become one of the most popular in-town neighborhoods in the metropolitan Atlanta area.   Early citizens rejected a proposal to make Decatur a major railway terminal because they didn’t want the noise and pollution, and subsequent city planners have built a vibrant community that oozes charm and retains the original character of the surrounding neighborhoods. Decatur is a small city that has done things right! What makes the City of Decatur Great? Location is always key for prospective home buyers, and Decatur is centrally located just a few miles Northeast of Atlanta,  about 20 minutes from the Atlanta Airport, and has easy access to all major expressways.    Home buyers are also interested in good schools and the City of Decatur has a top-rated system that consist...

Reasonably priced homes located within close proximity to Emory University are not staying on the market long.  In fact, the average days on the market for nine properties that have sold since January 1, 2014 in the popular Medlock Park area is 41 days! Homes in the Medlock Park neighborhood located just 2-3 miles from Emory sell between $150,000 and $270,000.  There are currently 14 homes for sale and 16 pending sales since the beginning of the year.

Decatur's (very) popular Oakhurst neighborhood kicks off the first of it's many annual events on February 22, 2014! The 2014 Oakhurst Wine Crawl in Decatur, GA will run from 4:00 pm to 7:00 pm and is one of our favorite events, probably because of the casual atmosphere and integration of many of the local businesses in the Oakhurst Village and along College Avenue.  At least two dozen businesses in Oakhurst will open their doors and serve wine from around the world. Part of the causal vibe is that the wine crawl doesn't have a start or end point.  You just pick up your official "crawl" glass at pop in at each of the local businesses on the list.  If you don't want to walk from the Village to College Ave, the fabulous FREE Fur Bus runs back and forth every 15 minutes.   If you haven't be...
