Burtons is a suburban neighborhood (based on population density) located in Virginia Beach, Virginia.

Burtons real estate is primarily made up of medium sized (three or four bedroom) to small (studio to two bedroom) apartment complexes/high-rise apartments and townhomes. Most of the residential real estate is renter occupied. Many of the residences in the Burtons neighborhood are established but not old, having been built between 1970 and 1999. A number of residences were also built between 1940 and 1969.

Burtons has a 12.5% vacancy rate, which is well above average compared to other U.S. neighborhoods (higher than 65.6% of American neighborhoods). Most vacant housing here is vacant year round. This could either signal that there is a weak demand for real estate in the neighborhood or that large amount of new housing has been built and not yet occupied. Either way, if you live here, you may find many of the homes or apartments are empty.

The Neighbors

The Neighbors: Income
