Oxford Housing Market Information

With 22,104 people, 5,587 houses or apartments, and a median cost of homes of $190,176, Oxford real estate prices are well above average cost compared to national prices.

Single-family detached homes are the single most common housing type in Oxford, accounting for 40.53% of the city's housing units. Other types of housing that are prevalent in Oxford include large apartment complexes or high rise apartments ( 33.46%), duplexes, homes converted to apartments or other small apartment buildings ( 17.95%), and a few row houses and other attached homes ( 5.15%).

Renters dominate Oxford's housing market, and most live in three of four bedroom dwellings, chiefly found in single-family detached homes.

There is a lot of housing in Oxford 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 Oxford built between 1940-1969 ( 21.79%). A lesser amount of the housing stock also hails from between 2000 and later ( 13.65%). There's also some housing in Oxford built before 1939 ( 10.33%).

Vacant housing appears to be an issue in Oxford. Fully 17.80% of the housing stock is classified as vacant. Left unchecked, vacant Oxford homes and apartments can be a drag on the real estate market, holding Oxford 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.
