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: Diversity
Did you know that the Lake Tahoe Blvd / Tahoe Mt Rd neighborhood has more
Austrian and Swiss ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 5.4% of
this neighborhood's residents have Austrian ancestry and 1.7% have Swiss ancestry.
Lake Tahoe Blvd / Tahoe Mt Rd is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 5.6% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak German at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher
than 99.8% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Occupations
The government often provides some of the more stable jobs in the economy.
From local, to state, to federal government workers, the government can
also be a major employer. What NeighborhoodScout's analysis revealed, is
that the Lake Tahoe Blvd / Tahoe Mt Rd neighborhood in particular stands out
when compared nationally for the proportion of its working residents who
are employed by the government. At 17.0% of its workforce, this
neighborhood has a greater concentration of government workers than
97.9% of U.S. neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: People
NeighborhoodScout's analysis shows that the Lake Tahoe Blvd / Tahoe Mt Rd
neighborhood has a greater concentration of residents currently enrolled
in college than 96.7% of the neighborhoods in the U.S. With
15.6% of the population here attending college, this is very
much a college-focused neighborhood.
In addition, the Lake Tahoe Blvd / Tahoe Mt Rd neighborhood is a great option for families,
as revealed by NeighborhoodScout's research on this neighborhood. The
combination of top public schools, low crime rates, and owner-occupied
single family homes, make this neighborhood among the top
6.3% of family-friendly neighborhoods in the
state of California. Many other families also live here, making
it easy to socialize and develop a sense of community. In addition,
families here highly value education, as is reflected by the strength of
the local schools.
Notable & Unique: Modes of Transportation
Would you like to be able to ride your bike to work? If you are attracted
to the idea of getting a little exercise of the two-wheeled type while
reducing your carbon footprint, bicycling to work might be the answer.
But which neighborhood you live in can make this either impossible, or
alternatively, a great and realistic option. NeighborhoodScout's analysis
revealed that the Lake Tahoe Blvd / Tahoe Mt Rd neighborhood is a fantastic
option for bicycle commuters, as 3.2% of commuters here do ride
their bikes to and from work on a daily basis. This is a higher amount
than we found in 95.1% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
In addition, some neighborhoods are made up of apartments. Some consist of row houses, and most - by far - consist of a mixture of housing types. But the Lake Tahoe Blvd / Tahoe Mt Rd neighborhood stands out due to the total dominance of detached, single-family homes here. There are nearly no other types of residential real estate in the neighborhood. In fact, this neighborhood has a higher proportion of single-family homes in its real estate stock than 98.9% of all American neighborhoods.
Furthermore, despite all of the residential real estate here in the Lake Tahoe Blvd / Tahoe Mt Rd neighborhood, NeighborhoodScout has discovered that much of it is vacant. In resort or second-home vacation areas, this naturally occurs because homes and apartments are seasonally occupied, and empty for a portion of the year. In non-vacation or resort areas, however, this can be an indicator of property abandonment or a weak real estate market. The vacancy rate here is 49.2%, which is higher than 98.5% of all U.S. neighborhoods.
