Vacant housing appears to be an issue in Reserve. Fully 14.03% of the housing stock is classified as vacant. Left unchecked, vacant Reserve homes and apartments can be a drag on the real estate market, holding Reserve real estate prices below levels they could achieve if vacant housing was absorbed into the market and became occupied.
