24/7 Wall St.: The 10 Markets with the Most Empty Homes

6. Dayton, Ohio

Vacancy rate: 6.6% (tied for 4th highest)
Median price per square foot: $72
Unemployment: 6.9%

If Dayton is starting to blossom into a rosier housing market, it is not yet evident in the area’s housing statistics. In addition to high vacancy rates, the data show a decrease in housing prices per square foot on a year-over-year basis along with a drop in the median sales price. Sales volume in the city climbed just 2.6% in the same period. The 11.8% peak-to-trough drop in the area was not the worst in Ohio, but that is not much to cheer about. Still, for homebuyers, a median sale price of $73,658 must have a certain appeal.
