There is a lot of housing in York 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.

Vacant housing appears to be an issue in York. Fully 10.67% of the housing stock is classified as vacant. Left unchecked, vacant York homes and apartments can be a drag on the real estate market, holding York 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.

The cumulative appreciation rate over the ten years has been 12.80%, which ranks in the top 30% nationwide. This equates to an annual average York house appreciation rate of 1.21%.
Appreciation rates are so strong in York that despite a nationwide downturn in the housing market, York real estate has continued to appreciate in value faster than most communities.

York appreciation rates in the latest quarter were at 1.88%, which equates to an annual appreciation rate of 7.72%.
Importantly, this makes York one of the highest appreciating communities in the nation for the latest quarter, and may signal the city's near-future real estate investment strength.
