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. Floyd's housing was primarily built during this period, from the '40s through the '60s. A full 35.66% of the town's housing hails from this era.

Vacant housing appears to be an issue in Floyd. Fully 10.49% of the housing stock is classified as vacant. Left unchecked, vacant Floyd homes and apartments can be a drag on the real estate market, holding Floyd real estate prices below levels they could achieve if vacant housing was absorbed into the market and became occupied.
