There is also a lot of housing in Cameron built before 1939 ( 24.15%). A lesser amount of the housing stock also hails from between 1940-1969 ( 19.49%).

Vacant housing appears to be an issue in Cameron. Fully 10.52% of the housing stock is classified as vacant. Left unchecked, vacant Cameron homes and apartments can be a drag on the real estate market, holding Cameron 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.
