Sunnyside real estate is primarily made up of medium sized (three or four bedroom) to small (studio to two 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 Sunnyside neighborhood are relatively historic, built no later than 1939, and in some cases, quite a bit earlier. A number of residences were also built between 1940 and 1969.
Sunnyside has a 12.2% vacancy rate, which is
well above average compared to other U.S. neighborhoods (higher than
63.6% of American neighborhoods). This could either
signal that there is weak demand for real estate in the neighborhood,
or that much of the housing stock is seasonally occupied,
which can occur in some markets dominated by colleges or vacation homes.
Either way, if you live here year round, you will find many of the homes
or apartments are empty for all or a portion of the year.
