Posted on March 8, 2012 by atlantadecaturhomes <!-- .entry-meta --> The National Association of Realtors thinks that property values will rise 1.1% this year, but this modest rise in value may not help your home to sell. Popular realtor site, Active Rain, indicates mixed expectations from various sources.
Our economy is still fragile and home sales are up only slightly. Until the job market and the building industry improve considerably and foreclosures and short sales ebb, home prices will not go up. If Your Home Doesn’t Sell, Is Renting the Best Move? Maybe. If you are offered a new position (0 comments)

History - Decatur Real Estate Decatur real estate in this part of DeKalb County sold in 1822 for 10 cents an acre. The following year, Decatur was named the County Seat and the area began developing. Leafmore Hills and the surrounding area was once a rural farming community with few homes and no 4-lane highways. Dairy farms dotted the landscape and Clairmont Road, now a major artery, was part of an Indian trail. There were no shopping centers, grocery stores, or restaurants, just small crop farms and cows!
