Nearly 80% of Camarillo's 21,946 dwelling units reported by the United States Census Bureau are single family homes, while multi-family housing accounts for 16% and mobile homes make up about 5% of the housing stock. That proportion has remained fairly constant since 1970, countering a statewide decline in single-family homes. A majority of these homes are less than 30 years old, with prices ranging from the mid-$300s to over $1 million.
