East Camden real estate is primarily made up of small (studio to two bedroom) to medium sized (three or four bedroom) townhomes and apartment complexes/high-rise apartments.
Most of the residential real estate is renter occupied. Many of
the residences in the East Camden neighborhood are older, well-established, built between 1940 and 1969. A number of residences were also built before 1940.
East Camden has a 14.0% vacancy rate, which is
well above average compared to other U.S. neighborhoods (higher than
70.5% 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.

When you see a neighborhood for the first time, the most important thing

may be relatively wealthy overall, it is equally important to understand
the rate of people - particularly children - who are living at or below the

another with a higher average income, and this helps us understand the
conditions and character of a neighborhood.
