Wellington Housing Market Information

With a population of 65,200, 20,536 total housing units (homes and apartments), and a median house value of $399,038, real estate costs in Wellington 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.

Single-family detached homes are the single most common housing type in Wellington, accounting for 71.84% of the village's housing units. Other types of housing that are prevalent in Wellington include large apartment complexes or high rise apartments ( 10.57%), row houses and other attached homes ( 8.61%), and a few duplexes, homes converted to apartments or other small apartment buildings ( 8.24%).

Owner-occupied, three and four bedroom dwellings, primarily in single-family detached homes are the most prevalent type of housing you will see in Wellington. Owner-occupied housing accounts for 75.84% of Wellington's homes, and 68.67% have either three or four bedrooms, which is average sized relative to America.

There is a lot of housing in Wellington 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 Wellington built between 2000 and later ( 37.37%). A lesser amount of the housing stock also hails from between 1940-1969 ( 0.92%).

Vacant housing appears to be an issue in Wellington. Fully 16.73% of the housing stock is classified as vacant. Left unchecked, vacant Wellington homes and apartments can be a drag on the real estate market, holding Wellington 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.
