    Chatham County Real Estate

    Chatham County is one of the original counties of Georgia, founded in 1777, and is named for William Pitt, 1st Earl of Chatham. Outside of the metropolitan area of Atlanta, it is the most populous county in the state.

    Bound along the northeast by the Savannah River, the line from Bloomingdale to Tybee Island most closely represents the northern boundary.  The Ogeechee River creates the southern boundary, separating Chatham and Bryan Counties.  The Atlantic Ocean is the eastern most boundary.

    The county is comprised of several incorporated areas:  Bloomingdale, Garden City, Pooler, Port Wentworth, Savannah, Thunderbolt, and Tybee Island.  When looking to purchase a home in the area, many take into consideration living in one of the incorporated areas would require homeowners to pay not only county taxes, but city taxes as well.
