With a population of 2,181, 861 total housing units (homes and apartments), and a median house value of $152,473, Cherokee real estate and house prices are near the national average for all cities and towns.
Single-family detached homes are the single most common housing type in Cherokee, accounting for 64.52% of the town's housing units. Other types of housing that are prevalent in Cherokee include mobile homes or trailers ( 24.87%), large apartment complexes or high rise apartments ( 5.68%), and a few duplexes, homes converted to apartments or other small apartment buildings ( 4.51%).
Dwellings in Cherokee tend to be quite small (one, two, or no bedrooms) and owner occupied. In fact, 51.50% of the homes in Cherokee have two or fewer bedrooms.
There is a lot of housing in Cherokee 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 Cherokee built between 2000 and later ( 22.87%). A lesser amount of the housing stock also hails from between 1940-1969 ( 13.86%). There's also some housing in Cherokee built before 1939 ( 5.18%).
Vacant housing appears to be an issue in Cherokee. Fully 28.13% of the housing stock is classified as vacant. Left unchecked, vacant Cherokee homes and apartments can be a drag on the real estate market, holding Cherokee 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.
