Three-fourths of Mission residents are renters. Despite the economic downturn, owning a home in the Mission continues to be out of reach for many families. The median home value is $745, 053, and while high, only 8% of homes that would otherwise be for sale in the Mission are vacant. In other words, Mission housing is a valued commodity. Considering the rate of poverty for particular segments in the neighborhood along with the density of residents in certain areas, many Mission residents likely share housing in order to make ends meet. In fact, 23% of households in the Mission are considered overcrowded.
Data for this profile was gathered from the 5-year estimates of the 2006-2010 American Community Survey and 2012 data from the Center for Housing Policy.
