With 1,187 people, 417 houses or apartments, and a median cost of homes of $327,886, real estate costs in Lyons are among some of the highest in the nation, although house prices here don't compare to real estate prices in the most expensive Oregon communities.

Other types of housing that are prevalent in Lyons include mobile homes or trailers ( 18.50%), duplexes, homes converted to apartments or other small apartment buildings ( 2.29%), and a few large apartment complexes or high rise apartments ( 1.04%).

There is a lot of housing in Lyons 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 Lyons built between 1940-1969 ( 26.82%). A lesser amount of the housing stock also hails from between 2000 and later ( 15.18%). There's also some housing in Lyons built before 1939 ( 7.69%).

Vacant housing appears to be an issue in Lyons. Fully 13.31% of the housing stock is classified as vacant. Left unchecked, vacant Lyons homes and apartments can be a drag on the real estate market, holding Lyons 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.
