Ortona is a suburban neighborhood (based on population
density) located in Daytona Beach, Florida. This is a coastal neighborhood (i.e., is on the ocean, a bay, or inlet).
Ortona real estate is primarily made up of small (studio to two bedroom) to medium sized (three or four bedroom) single-family homes and apartment complexes/high-rise apartments.
Most of the residential real estate is owner occupied. Many of
the residences in the Ortona neighborhood are older, well-established, built between 1940 and 1969. A number of residences were also built between 1970 and 1999.
Vacant apartments or homes are a major fact of life in
Ortona. The current real estate vacancy rate here is 39.9%.
This is higher than the rate of vacancies in 97.3% of
all U.S. neighborhoods. This can sometimes be the case in neighborhoods
dominated by seasonal homes (such as vacation areas), and occasionally
it is also found in neighborhoods that are primarily filled with college
students, as some apartments could be vacant when school is not in session.
But often neighborhoods with vacancy rates this high are places that
can be plagued by a protracted vacancy problem. If you live here, you
may find that a number of buildings in your neighborhood are actually empty.
