With a population of 62,560, 19,959 total housing units (homes and apartments), and a median house value of $365,331, Wellington house prices are not only among the most expensive in Florida, Wellington real estate also is some of the most expensive in all of America.

Single-family detached homes are the single most common housing type in Wellington, accounting for 73.03% of the village's housing units. Other types of housing that are prevalent in Wellington include large apartment complexes or high rise apartments ( 9.56%), duplexes, homes converted to apartments or other small apartment buildings ( 8.26%), and a few row houses and other attached homes ( 8.21%).

Owner-occupied housing accounts for 78.74% of Wellington's homes, and 69.41% 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 ( 35.98%). A lesser amount of the housing stock also hails from between 1940-1969 ( 0.70%).

Vacant housing appears to be an issue in Wellington. Fully 17.62% 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.
