Census data show rise in local home vacancy

The number of vacant homes in western Colorado rose over the past decade, according to the 2010 Census, but the vacancy rate in most of the region was smaller than it was statewide.

The rise reflected, as well, a national trend that showed 11.4 percent of all homes in the United States were vacant.

The figure, however, includes vacation and second homes.

Accordingly, states known as vacation getaways had high vacancy rates. Maine had the highest rate, 22.8 percent, followed by Vermont, 20.5 percent; and Florida, 17.5 percent; Arizona, 16.3 percent; and Alaska, 15.9 percent.

Connecticut’s 7.9 percent was the lowest rate among the states.
