At the end of World War II, American soldiers returned home triumphant and, with the help of the GI Bill, built homes by the millions on the edges of America's cities. These homes were predominantly capes and ranches, modest in size, but built to house a growing middle-class as the 20th century became the American century. Stanley's housing was primarily built during this period, from the '40s through the '60s. A full 39.53% of the town's housing hails from this era. Other housing ages represented in Stanley include homes built between 1970-1999 ( 37.66%) and housing constructed between 2000 and later ( 15.25%). There's also some housing in Stanley built before 1939 ( 7.56%).
Vacant housing appears to be an issue in Stanley. Fully 10.85% of the housing stock is classified as vacant. Left unchecked, vacant Stanley homes and apartments can be a drag on the real estate market, holding Stanley 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.
Appreciation rates for homes in Stanley have been tracking above average for the last ten years, according to NeighborhoodScout data. The cumulative appreciation rate over the ten years has been 3.46%, which ranks in the top 50% nationwide. This equates to an annual average Stanley house appreciation rate of 0.34%.
