Brentwood Housing Market Information

With a population of 8,057, 3,797 total housing units (homes and apartments), and a median house value of $245,800, Brentwood real estate is some of the most expensive in Missouri, although Brentwood home values aren't among America's most expensive.

Single-family detached homes are the single most common housing type in Brentwood, accounting for 58.20% of the city's housing units. Other types of housing that are prevalent in Brentwood include large apartment complexes or high rise apartments ( 19.17%), duplexes, homes converted to apartments or other small apartment buildings ( 14.01%), and a few row houses and other attached homes ( 8.62%).

Dwellings in Brentwood tend to be quite small (one, two, or no bedrooms) and owner occupied. In fact, 60.70% of the homes in Brentwood have two or fewer bedrooms.

At the end of World War II, American soldiers returned home triumphant and, with the help of the GI Bill, built homes by the millions on the edges of America's cities. These homes were predominantly capes and ranches, modest in size, but built to house a growing middle-class as the 20th century became the American century. Brentwood's housing was primarily built during this period, from the '40s through the '60s. A full 49.98% of the city's housing hails from this era. Other housing ages represented in Brentwood include homes built between 1970-1999 ( 26.74%) and housing constructed between 2000 and later ( 11.70%). There's also some housing in Brentwood built before 1939 ( 11.58%).

Vacant housing appears to be an issue in Brentwood. Fully 11.33% of the housing stock is classified as vacant. Left unchecked, vacant Brentwood homes and apartments can be a drag on the real estate market, holding Brentwood 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.
