America's Emptiest Cities

Houston, Texas

Home Vacancy Rate: 2.6 percent

Apartment Vacancy Rate: 14.5 percent

The Bayou City is still booming -- its economy grew 55 percent between 2001 and 2009, according to the Commerce Department--but Texans have a way always building more apartments than the market can absorb. Houston's rental vacancy rate was as high as 17.9 percent in mid-2010.
