There is a lot of housing in Dunedin built from 1970 to 1999 so parts of town may have that "Brady Bunch" look of homes popular in the '70s and early '80s, although some of these houses were built up through the early '90s as well. There is also a lot of housing in Dunedin built between 1940-1969 ( 30.40%). A lesser amount of the housing stock also hails from between 2000 and later ( 6.82%).

Vacant housing appears to be an issue in Dunedin. Fully 19.46% of the housing stock is classified as vacant. Left unchecked, vacant Dunedin homes and apartments can be a drag on the real estate market, holding Dunedin 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.
