Nearly Two-Thirds Of City Housing Occupied By Renters, 3rd Highest In State

The City Joins Seven Other Virginia Localities On The List

Nearly 62% of housing in the City of Fredericksburg is occupied by renters, the 13th highest rate in the country and third highest in the state, according to a recent report from Overflow Data.

The city’s renter rate of 61.5% joins seven other Virginia localities on the top 25, including Petersburg (62.6%), Harrisonburg (61.9%) and Emporia (60%). Kalawao County, Hawaii (100%) tops the overall list, followed by Kenedy County, Texas (84.2%) and Bronx County, New York (80%).

The percentage of renter-occupied households in Fredericksburg is trending downward; a report from Stacker in 2021 placed 64.5% of households renting, which was the highest in Virginia at the time.

Fredericksburg’s renter rates are inverse the national average, where nearly two thirds of Americans own their homes.
