Vacant housing appears to be an issue in Jasper. Fully 11.65% of the housing stock is classified as vacant. Left unchecked, vacant Jasper homes and apartments can be a drag on the real estate market, holding Jasper real estate prices below levels they could achieve if vacant housing was absorbed into the market and became occupied. Housing vacancy rates are a useful measure to consider, along with other things, if you are a home buyer or a real estate investor.
