At the end of World War II, American soldiers returned home triumphant and, with the help of the GI Bill, built homes by the millions on the edges of America's cities. These homes were predominantly capes and ranches, modest in size, but built to house a growing middle-class as the 20th century became the American century. Petersburg's housing was primarily built during this period, from the '40s through the '60s. A full 33.63% of the city's housing hails from this era. Other housing ages represented in Petersburg include homes built before 1939 ( 31.14%) and housing constructed between 1970-1999 ( 26.42%). There's also some housing in Petersburg built between 2000 and later ( 8.81%).

Vacant housing appears to be an issue in Petersburg. Fully 10.14% of the housing stock is classified as vacant. Left unchecked, vacant Petersburg homes and apartments can be a drag on the real estate market, holding Petersburg 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.
