Despite all of the residential real estate here in the Grandview neighborhood, NeighborhoodScout has discovered that much of it is vacant. In resort or second-home vacation areas, this naturally occurs because homes and apartments are seasonally occupied, and empty for a portion of the year.

The vacancy rate here is 37.8%, which is higher than 96.8% of all U.S. neighborhoods.
