Vacant housing appears to be an issue in Jessup. Fully 11.64% of the housing stock is classified as vacant. Left unchecked, vacant Jessup homes and apartments can be a drag on the real estate market, holding Jessup real estate prices below levels they could achieve if vacant housing was absorbed into the market and became occupied.
