There is a lot of housing in Florence 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 Florence built between 2000 and later ( 24.48%). A lesser amount of the housing stock also hails from between 1940-1969 ( 13.22%).

Vacant housing appears to be an issue in Florence. Fully 17.76% of the housing stock is classified as vacant. Left unchecked, vacant Florence homes and apartments can be a drag on the real estate market, holding Florence 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.
