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: Modes of Transportation
In the Mountain View Acres neighborhood, carpooling is still a popular
way to get to and from work. NeighborhoodScout's analysis reveals that
29.4% of commuters carpool here, which is more than in
99.1% of all U.S. neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: Car Ownership
Most American households own a car or other vehicle. Many own two cars
or perhaps three. In the United States, it is useful to have an automobile
not only for commuting, but also for shopping and getting to other services
one needs. But NeighborhoodScout's analysis revealed that households in
the Mountain View Acres neighborhood have a highly unusual car ownership.
Residents of this neighborhood must really love automobiles. NeighborhoodScout's
Analysis reveals that 45.1% of the households here have four, five,
or more cars. That is more cars per household than in 98.3% of
the neighborhoods in the nation.
Notable & Unique: Diversity
Did you know that the Mountain View Acres neighborhood has more
Spanish ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 1.3% of
this neighborhood's residents have Spanish ancestry.
Notable & Unique: Length of Commute
Whether walking, biking, riding, or driving, the length of one's commute
is an important factor for one's quality of life. The Mountain View Acres
neighborhood stands out for its commute length, according to NeighborhoodScout's
Long commutes can be brutal. They take time, money, and energy, leaving less
of you for yourself and your family. The residents of the
Mountain View Acres neighborhood unfortunately have the distinction of having,
on average, a longer commute than most any neighborhood in America.
9.0% of commuters here travel more than one hour just one-way
to work. That is more than two hours per day. This percentage with two-hour +
round-trip commutes is higher than NeighborhoodScout found in 96.4%
of all neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Occupations
It used to be that most Americans lived on the farm, or otherwise made their
living from the land, the forests, or the sea. With global trade and an
economy increasingly based on providing services to one another, fewer
people farm, fish or harvest timber now than at any time in American history.
But according to NeighborhoodScout's leading analysis, the
Mountain View Acres neighborhood stands apart from most American neighborhood due
to the proportion of its residents still working in these fields. With 4.2%
of the workforce so employed, this neighborhood has a greater concentration
of such workers than 95.4% of U.S. neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
In addition, one way that the Mountain View Acres neighborhood really stands out, is that it has more large 4, 5, or additional bedroom homes and real estate than 97.3% of the neighborhoods in America. When you walk or drive around this neighborhood, you'll instantly notice the size of the homes here which definitely makes a strong visual statement.
Furthermore, 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 Mountain View Acres 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 95.8% of all American neighborhoods.
