Vacant housing appears to be an issue in Gautier. Fully 18.25% of the housing stock is classified as vacant. Left unchecked, vacant Gautier homes and apartments can be a drag on the real estate market, holding Gautier real estate prices below levels they could achieve if vacant housing was absorbed into the market and became occupied.
