With 94,323 people, 31,261 houses or apartments, and a median cost of homes of $253,146, Sunrise real estate prices are well above average cost compared to national prices.

Large apartment complexes or high rise apartments are the single most common housing type in Sunrise, accounting for 46.12% of the city's housing units. Other types of housing that are prevalent in Sunrise include single-family detached homes ( 37.54%), row houses and other attached homes ( 11.10%), and a few duplexes, homes converted to apartments or other small apartment buildings ( 4.66%). This particular housing mix is relatively uncommon and characteristic of cities that are compact and walkable, and which often have a lively downtown.

People in Sunrise primarily live in small (one, two or no bedroom) units, chiefly found in large apartment complexes or high rise apartments. Sunrise has a mixture of owner-occupied and renter-occupied housing.

There is a lot of housing in Sunrise 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 Sunrise built between 2000 and later ( 10.36%). A lesser amount of the housing stock also hails from between 1940-1969 ( 8.80%).

Vacant housing appears to be an issue in Sunrise. Fully 15.47% of the housing stock is classified as vacant. Left unchecked, vacant Sunrise homes and apartments can be a drag on the real estate market, holding Sunrise 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.
