Vacant housing appears to be an issue in Seminole. Fully 10.54% of the housing stock is classified as vacant. Left unchecked, vacant Seminole homes and apartments can be a drag on the real estate market, holding Seminole real estate prices below levels they could achieve if vacant housing was absorbed into the market and became occupied.
