Maine Data Glimpse: Housing Vacancy in Northern New England, 2017

More than one-quarter of housing units in Maine are vacant, a higher share than in the other Northern New England States or the nation.

However, like in the rest of Northern New England, the majority of these vacant units are not available for sale or rent. Instead, four-fifths of them are unavailable, with the majority of those (71 percent) designated for seasonal, vacation, or occasional use.
