Moscow, PA Housing Market Trends

With a population of 2,035, 754 total housing units (homes and apartments), and a median house value of $267,805, Moscow real estate prices are well above average cost compared to national prices.

Single-family detached homes are the single most common housing type in Moscow, accounting for 76.87% of the borough's housing units. Other types of housing that are prevalent in Moscow include large apartment complexes or high rise apartments ( 14.00%), duplexes, homes converted to apartments or other small apartment buildings ( 5.93%), and a few row houses and other attached homes ( 2.37%).

Owner-occupied, three and four bedroom dwellings, primarily in single-family detached homes are the most prevalent type of housing you will see in Moscow. Owner-occupied housing accounts for 76.53% of Moscow's homes, and 65.60% have either three or four bedrooms, which is average sized relative to America.

There is a lot of housing in Moscow built from 1970 to 1999 so parts of town may have that "Brady Bunch" look of homes popular in the '70s and early '80s, although some of these houses were built up through the early '90s as well. There is also a lot of housing in Moscow built before 1939 ( 26.22%). A lesser amount of the housing stock also hails from between 1940-1969 ( 23.49%). There's also some housing in Moscow built between 2000 and later ( 11.39%).

Vacant housing appears to be an issue in Moscow. Fully 10.56% of the housing stock is classified as vacant. Left unchecked, vacant Moscow homes and apartments can be a drag on the real estate market, holding Moscow real estate prices below levels they could achieve if vacant housing was absorbed into the market and became occupied. Housing vacancy rates are a useful measure to consider, along with other things, if you are a home buyer or a real estate investor.
