Manchester Housing Market Information

With 2,143 people, 870 houses or apartments, and a median cost of homes of $216,801, Manchester real estate is some of the most expensive in Michigan, although Manchester home values aren't among America's most expensive.

Single-family detached homes are the single most common housing type in Manchester, accounting for 61.95% of the village's housing units. Other types of housing that are prevalent in Manchester include large apartment complexes or high rise apartments ( 11.24%), mobile homes or trailers ( 11.14%), and a few duplexes, homes converted to apartments or other small apartment buildings ( 11.04%).

Owner-occupied, three and four bedroom dwellings, primarily in single-family detached homes are the most prevalent type of housing you will see in Manchester. Owner-occupied housing accounts for 72.70% of Manchester's homes, and 56.63% have either three or four bedrooms, which is average sized relative to America.

There is a lot of housing in Manchester 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 Manchester built before 1939 ( 36.75%). A lesser amount of the housing stock also hails from between 2000 and later ( 13.15%). There's also some housing in Manchester built between 1940-1969 ( 8.84%).

Vacant housing appears to be an issue in Manchester. Fully 12.65% of the housing stock is classified as vacant. Left unchecked, vacant Manchester homes and apartments can be a drag on the real estate market, holding Manchester 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.
