Delhi Housing Market Information

With a population of 2,900, 1,080 total housing units (homes and apartments), and a median house value of $107,800, house prices in Delhi are solidly below the national average.

Single-family detached homes are the single most common housing type in Delhi, accounting for 73.41% of the town's housing units. Other types of housing that are prevalent in Delhi include mobile homes or trailers ( 15.92%), duplexes, homes converted to apartments or other small apartment buildings ( 9.73%).

The most prevalent building size and type in Delhi are three and four bedroom dwellings, chiefly found in single-family detached homes. The town has a mixture of owners and renters, with 54.62% owning and 45.38% renting.

There is a lot of housing in Delhi 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 Delhi built between 1940-1969 ( 39.06%). A lesser amount of the housing stock also hails from before 1939 ( 4.24%). There's also some housing in Delhi built between 2000 and later ( 1.80%).

Vacant housing appears to be an issue in Delhi. Fully 15.29% of the housing stock is classified as vacant. Left unchecked, vacant Delhi homes and apartments can be a drag on the real estate market, holding Delhi 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.
