Atlantic City area has 34th highest home vacancy rate among U.S. metro areas


The number of vacant homes in the Atlantic City area was nearly 2,500 in the third quarter of 2018, a 1,583-unit decrease over what it was a year ago, according to new real estate numbers reported by ATTOM Data Solutions.

The Atlantic City area had the 34th highest home vacancy rate among the 153 Metropolitan Statistical Areas with 100,000 or more single-family homes and condos in the analysis. The rate stood at 2.19 percent in the third quarter, down from 3.57 percent in the third quarter of 2017. 

Nationally, the home vacancy rate was 1.52 percent in the third quarter, representing more than 1.4 million housing units. That’s a 4 percent decrease over what it was in the third quarter of 2017 as activity in the nation’s housing market continued to intensify, according to ATTOM Data. 

The study used county tax assessor information to determine the vacancy status for more than 95 million homes throughout the nation.
