Large apartment complexes or high rise apartments are the single most common housing type in Marietta, accounting for 40.49% of the city's housing units. Other types of housing that are prevalent in Marietta include single-family detached homes ( 39.84%), row houses and other attached homes ( 13.94%), and a few duplexes, homes converted to apartments or other small apartment buildings ( 5.09%). Cities that are predominantly high-density buildings are relatively uncommon in the US. Because of the density, these types of cities are often walkable and compact, and often have a lively downtown.

There is a lot of housing in Marietta 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 Marietta built between 1940-1969 ( 17.87%). A lesser amount of the housing stock also hails from between 2000 and later ( 14.93%). There's also some housing in Marietta built before 1939 ( 5.40%).
Vacant housing appears to be an issue in Marietta. Fully 10.05% of the housing stock is classified as vacant. Left unchecked, vacant Marietta homes and apartments can be a drag on the real estate market, holding Marietta 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.
In the last 10 years, Marietta has experienced some of the highest home appreciation rates of any community in the nation. Marietta real estate appreciated 43.91% over the last ten years, which is an average annual home appreciation rate of 3.71%, putting Marietta in the top 20% nationally for real estate appreciation. If you are a home buyer or real estate investor, Marietta definitely has a track record of being one of the best long term real estate investments in America through the last ten years.

One very important thing to keep in mind is that these are average appreciation rates for the city.
