Killearn Estates is the iconic cornerstone of Northeast Tallahassee neighborhoods.

It began in the 1960s with the purchase of land from Velda Dairy Farm and was the first master planned community in Tallahassee. It features underground utilities, parks, lakes and a golf course as its centerpiece.

The houses in Killearn Estates were built from the 1960s to present day, though most were built 20 or more years ago. This means that there are plenty of great values (a lot of house for the money). Additionally, opportunities for buying and upgrading older houses on mature lots are an option for those wanting a newer house without the higher costs of building new today.

In this report, we will look at prices, values, and sizes of houses in Killearn Estates, as well as show current listings in the Tallahassee MLS and all closed house sales going back to 2002.
