A number of residences were also built between 1970 and 1999.
Vacant apartments or homes are a major fact of life in Sims. The current real estate vacancy rate here is 24.2%. This is higher than the rate of vacancies in 90.1% 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.
