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. Beatrice's housing was primarily built during this period, from the '40s through the '60s. A full 34.44% of the city's housing hails from this era.

Vacant housing appears to be an issue in Beatrice. Fully 12.35% of the housing stock is classified as vacant. Left unchecked, vacant Beatrice homes and apartments can be a drag on the real estate market, holding Beatrice 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.
