Plantation Housing Market Information

With a population of 94,288, 33,426 total housing units (homes and apartments), and a median house value of $374,150, real estate costs in Plantation are among some of the highest in the nation, although house prices here don't compare to real estate prices in the most expensive Florida communities.

Other types of housing that are prevalent in Plantation include large apartment complexes or high rise apartments ( 36.65%), row houses and other attached homes ( 11.25%), and a few duplexes, homes converted to apartments or other small apartment buildings ( 5.14%).

People in Plantation primarily live in small (one, two or no bedroom) single-family detached homes. Plantation has a mixture of owner-occupied and renter-occupied housing.

There is a lot of housing in Plantation 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 Plantation built between 1940-1969 ( 18.00%). A lesser amount of the housing stock also hails from between 2000 and later ( 9.02%).

Vacant housing appears to be an issue in Plantation. Fully 11.28% of the housing stock is classified as vacant. Left unchecked, vacant Plantation homes and apartments can be a drag on the real estate market, holding Plantation 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.
