Decatur Real Estate

The city of Decatur itself has a comprehensive web site that is the perfect starting point for learning about the Decatur area. The city prides itself on the diversity of its population, housing types, restaurants, and shops. Within the area, several neighborhoods have formed their own neighborhood associations. One of the most visible of these neighborhood groups is Oakhurst, which takes up much of Decatur south of the railroad tracks running alongside College and Howard Avenues.

The center of Decatur, both geographically and culturally, is what everyone calls “The Square” (officially “Court Square”) at the intersection of Clairmont, E. Ponce de Leon, and McDonough. There you will find the current DeKalb County Courthouse, the old courthouse that now houses the DeKalb History Center, the Decatur MARTA Station, and many shops and restaurants. It has a real urban feel, yet it is graciously landscaped and secure. The Bandstand hosts many concerts, and the series, Concerts on the Square is a “must-visit.” During the warm months, you will also find the Decatur Organic Farmers’ Market every Wednesday from 4 p.m. – 7 p.m. in the summer and 3 p.m. – 6 p.m. in the winter in the Bank of America parking lot. Support your local farmer!
