Vacant housing appears to be an issue in Hudson. Fully 22.23% of the housing stock is classified as vacant. Left unchecked, vacant Hudson homes and apartments can be a drag on the real estate market, holding Hudson 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.
