I'd rather say, go with the very basics of it and brew your own. No 
common ontology for that exists. Existing geolocation vocabularies can 
be used for where things *are*. Streets and thoroughfares can be 
inferred from them when properly tagged. So can houses, given their 
geometry. Then, just tag them with their zoning status, current 
esimated/real value, and their "content" as a housing unit. The last 
part requires you to put up yet another vocabulary -- but it's dead 
simple in the Semantic Web. Just Do It. ;)
