There is a lot of housing in Boone 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. There is also a lot of housing in Boone built between 2000 and later ( 21.04%). A lesser amount of the housing stock also hails from between 1940-1969 ( 15.32%).

Housing vacancy rates are a useful measure to consider, along with other things, if you are a home buyer or a real estate investor.
