When you see a neighborhood for the first time, the most important thing
is often the way it looks, like its homes and its setting. Some places look
the same, but they only reveal their true character after living in them for
a while because they contain a unique mix of occupational or cultural groups.
This neighborhood is very unique in some important ways, according to
NeighborhoodScout's exclusive exploration and analysis.
Notable & Unique: People
Of note is NeighborhoodScout's research finding that the
Country Club Highlands neighborhood has some of the lowest rates of children
living in poverty of any neighborhood in the United States. In a nation
where approximately 1 in 4 children are living in poverty, the
Country Club Highlands community truly stands out from the rest in this regard.
In addition, a majority of the adults in the Country Club Highlands neighborhood
are wealthy and educated executives. They own stately
homes that tend to maintain high real estate appreciation rates. Their
upper-level careers keep them busy, but allow them to live comfortably.
If you're an executive and want to keep similar company, consider settling

"best choice" neighborhood for Alabama by NeighborhoodScout's analysis,
which rated it as better for executive lifestyles than 98.4%
of the neighborhoods in Alabama.
In addition to being an excellent choice for highly educated executives, this
neighborhood is also a very good choice for families with school-aged children and urban sophisticates.
Also, astoundingly, NeighborhoodScout's research reveals that this single
neighborhood has a higher concentration of married couples living here
than 97.9% of all U.S. neighborhoods. Whether they have
school-aged children or not, married couples are the rule in the
Country Club Highlands neighborhood. If you are a married couple, you may find many
people here with a similar lifestyle, and perhaps common interests. But if
you are single, you might not find many other singles here.
Finally, if knowledge is power, then imagine the cumulative power of one neighborhood
where many of the adults have earned an advanced degree, such as a Masters,
law degree, medical degree, or even a Ph.D. This is certainly the case in
the Country Club Highlands neighborhood, where 37.0% have
earned an advanced degree. Compare that to the average neighborhood in
America, where just 8.4% of adults have completed a post-graduate degree,
and you can see why this neighborhood is a stand out. In fact, this neighborhood
has a higher rate of adults with an advanced degree than 97.5%
of the neighborhoods in America.

Lebanese and Welsh ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 1.7% of
this neighborhood's residents have Lebanese ancestry and 2.3% have Welsh ancestry.
Country Club Highlands is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 4.0% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak Gujarati, which is native to the Indian state of Gujarat, at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher
than 99.6% of the neighborhoods in America.

its residents employed as executives, managers and professionals than
96.9% of the neighborhoods in American. In fact, 66.9%

Notable & Unique: Real Estate

Furthermore, with a real estate vacancy rate of only 0.6%, the Country Club Highlands neighborhood has a lower vacancy rate than 96.3% of U.S. neighborhoods, a very elite group. Such a low vacancy rate may indicate very strong real estate demand in the neighborhood combined with some impediments to increasing supply, such as zoning or existing density of development, among other potential reasons.
