Madras Housing Market Information

With 6,662 people, 2,289 houses or apartments, and a median cost of homes of $154,613, Madras real estate values are some of the lowest in Oregon, although compared to real estate around the nation, Madras homes are still considered rather expensive.

Single-family detached homes are the single most common housing type in Madras, accounting for 55.16% of the city's housing units. Other types of housing that are prevalent in Madras include mobile homes or trailers ( 17.37%), duplexes, homes converted to apartments or other small apartment buildings ( 12.41%), and a few large apartment complexes or high rise apartments ( 11.72%).

The most prevalent building size and type in Madras are three and four bedroom dwellings, chiefly found in single-family detached homes. The city has a mixture of owners and renters, with 44.62% owning and 55.38% renting.

There is a lot of housing in Madras 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 Madras built between 1940-1969 ( 24.24%). A lesser amount of the housing stock also hails from between 2000 and later ( 22.76%). There's also some housing in Madras built before 1939 ( 1.93%).

Vacant housing appears to be an issue in Madras. Fully 13.16% of the housing stock is classified as vacant. Left unchecked, vacant Madras homes and apartments can be a drag on the real estate market, holding Madras 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.
