Vacancy Rate For "For Seasonal, Recreational, or Occasional Use" Property Type, Change, 2010
Arizona’s percentage of housing units held for seasonal, recreational, and occasional use was unchanged between 2000 and 2010; a small increase occurred nationally. The increase in the rate of other vacancies was the same in Arizona as the U.S. average.
The portion of the vacancy rate due to seasonal, recreational, or occasional use rose in some counties but fell others between 2000 and 2010. A big drop in Pinal County resulted from the increasing urbanization of that county, with most of its new residents of working age and living in their house year-round. The rate was little changed in the other two populous counties (Maricopa and Pima).
