At the end of World War II, American soldiers returned home triumphant and, with the help of the GI Bill, built homes by the millions on the edges of America's cities. These homes were predominantly capes and ranches, modest in size, but built to house a growing middle-class as the 20th century became the American century. Chamblee's housing was primarily built during this period, from the '40s through the '60s. A full 40.46% of the city's housing hails from this era. Other housing ages represented in Chamblee include homes built between 1970-1999 ( 38.78%) and housing constructed between 2000 and later ( 20.30%).

Left unchecked, vacant Chamblee homes and apartments can be a drag on the real estate market, holding Chamblee real estate prices below levels they could achieve if vacant housing was absorbed into the market and became occupied.
