Wake Forest Northeast Community Plan - December 2021

As presented in the demographic and housing analysis, more than 31% of the study area’s housing is occupied by renter households. That indicates that many of the homes in the Northeast Community study area, which were originally constructed as ownership housing, are now being rented. While this is a common occurrence in similar neighborhood with older housing

stock, it can have deleterious effects on neighborhood stability and housing conditions, if rental homes are not properly maintained by their investor owners. However, the current split between owner and rental housing is not particularly out of balance in the study area and is in line with national tenure levels. Roughly 24% of the Town’s housing stock is occupied by renter households.

RESIDENTIAL DEVELOPMENT AND SALES TRENDS New Housing Development The Northeast Community study area comprises mostly residential properties, with very little commercial development. In total, RKG estimates that there are roughly 515

residential properties on 155 acres equaling $75.5 million in real estate assessed value. Roughly 88% of all residential properties in the study area are single family homes, with only 6.2% mobile homes and 5.4% duplexes. Surprisingly, this is more diverse than the Town’s residential base, which consists of nearly 98% single family homes.
