There is also a lot of housing in Delta built before 1939 ( 25.30%). A lesser amount of the housing stock also hails from between 2000 and later ( 20.10%).

Vacant housing appears to be an issue in Delta. Fully 15.28% of the housing stock is classified as vacant. Left unchecked, vacant Delta homes and apartments can be a drag on the real estate market, holding Delta 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.
