There is a lot of housing in Branson 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.

A decent proportion of the Branson housing stock is seasonally occupied. That is, homes and condos in Branson are occupied by people for a portion of the year - mainly for vacation purposes - and then locked up and left unoccupied for the remainder of the year as owners return to their primary residences.
