Vacant housing appears to be an issue in Union. Fully 12.44% of the housing stock is classified as vacant. Left unchecked, vacant Union homes and apartments can be a drag on the real estate market, holding Union real estate prices below levels they could achieve if vacant housing was absorbed into the market and became occupied.
