At the end of World War II, American soldiers returned home triumphant and, with the help of the GI Bill, built homes by the millions on the edges of America's cities. These homes were predominantly capes and ranches, modest in size, but built to house a growing middle-class as the 20th century became the American century. Orange's housing was primarily built during this period, from the '40s through the '60s. A full 40.91% of the city's housing hails from this era. Other housing ages represented in Orange include homes built between 1970-1999 ( 37.80%) and housing constructed between 2000 and later ( 15.24%). There's also some housing in Orange built before 1939 ( 6.05%).

Vacant housing appears to be an issue in Orange. Fully 14.07% of the housing stock is classified as vacant. Left unchecked, vacant Orange homes and apartments can be a drag on the real estate market, holding Orange 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.
