With a population of 19,246, 5,860 total housing units (homes and apartments), and a median house value of $59,148, house prices in Alamo are some of the most affordable in Texas as well as the nation.
Single-family detached homes are the single most common housing type in Alamo, accounting for 55.57% of the city's housing units. Other types of housing that are prevalent in Alamo include mobile homes or trailers ( 29.50%), large apartment complexes or high rise apartments ( 7.43%), and a few duplexes, homes converted to apartments or other small apartment buildings ( 3.39%).
Dwellings in Alamo tend to be quite small (one, two, or no bedrooms) and owner occupied. In fact, 56.03% of the homes in Alamo have two or fewer bedrooms.
There is a lot of housing in Alamo 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 Alamo built between 2000 and later ( 26.32%). A lesser amount of the housing stock also hails from between 1940-1969 ( 8.52%). There's also some housing in Alamo built before 1939 ( 2.14%).
Vacant housing appears to be an issue in Alamo. Fully 21.27% of the housing stock is classified as vacant. Left unchecked, vacant Alamo homes and apartments can be a drag on the real estate market, holding Alamo 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.
