Last year might have brought us a cold winter, but the real estate market in the City of Decatur was anything but chilly last year. In fact, for the seventh consecutive year, home sales prices increased. That’s an astounding climb of nearly 61 percent since 2012.
But that doesn’t mean all is rosy in what’s definitely a softening market. Sellers, particularly in neighborhoods with substantial value like the City of Decatur, should arm themselves with two things: detailed information about the city and the specific neighborhood, and the right Realtor to sell for the right price as quickly as possible.
We can help with both of those things.
To that first point, we’re proud to release the City of Decatur Real Estate Market Review for 2017. It’s our annual report on the City of Decatur, where we’ve culled all of our insights on its neighborhoods — information gleaned from working as a Decatur real estate team, talking with hundreds of people throughout the year, and from putting our heads on pillows in this city every night.
It’s free, and it’s available now. 2017-2018 City of Decatur Market Review
It’s a treasure trove of interesting data, culled over 7 years, including all 10 neighborhoods:
- Adair Park – Lenox Place
- College Heights
- Glennwood Estates
- Great Lakes – Clairemont Estates
