The Oakhurst real estate market is on fire and has been since 2012. Buyers are coming in droves trying to find a single family bungalow or starter home. It is possible (but often a challenge) to find a smaller, semi-renovated 2 bedroom home in the low to mid $400s. If you are interested in a new construction 3 or 4 bedroom Craftsman home, be prepared to spend over $1.2M.
The average home sales price in Oakhurst is in the high $600s to mid $700s.
Thanks to the active Oakhurst neighborhood association, walkability, historic charm, parks, and the highly rated Oakhurst Elementary School, the demand for homes in Oakhurst Atlanta real estate continues to be very strong.
