the residences in the Kuhlman neighborhood are established but not old, having been built between 1970 and 1999. A number of residences were also built between 2000 and the present.
Vacant apartments or homes are a major fact of life in
Kuhlman. The current real estate vacancy rate here is 35.6%.
This is higher than the rate of vacancies in 96.3% of
all U.S. neighborhoods. This can sometimes be the case in neighborhoods
dominated by seasonal homes (such as vacation areas), and occasionally
it is also found in neighborhoods that are primarily filled with college
students, as some apartments could be vacant when school is not in session.
But often neighborhoods with vacancy rates this high are places that
can be plagued by a protracted vacancy problem. If you live here, you
may find that a number of buildings in your neighborhood are actually empty.
Notable & Unique Neighborhood Characteristics
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: Real Estate
One of the notable things about Kuhlman is that it is one of the quietest neighborhoods in America, according to NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis and quantitative rating of quietness. When you are here, you will find it to be very quiet. If quiet and peaceful are your cup of tea, you may have found a great place for you.
In addition, the Kuhlman neighborhood stands out for having the majority of its residential real estate made up of mobile homes. In fact, 68.0% of the occupied real estate here are mobile homes, which is a greater proportion than is found in 99.8% of the neighborhoods in the U.S. If you like mobile homes, this might be a great neighborhood in which to look for real estate.
Furthermore, despite all of the residential real estate here in the Kuhlman 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 35.6%, which is higher than 96.3% of all U.S. neighborhoods.
Also of note, the Kuhlman neighborhood is very unique in that it has one of the highest proportions of one, two, or no bedroom real estate of any neighborhood in America. Most neighborhoods have a mixture of home or apartment sizes from small to large, but here the concentration of studios and other small living spaces is at near-record heights. With 82.4% of the real estate here of this small size, this most assuredly is a notable feature that makes this neighborhood unique, along with just a handful of other neighborhoods in the U.S. that share this characteristic.
Finally, most neighborhoods are composed of a mixture of ages of homes, but the Kuhlman stands out as rather unique in having nearly all of its residential real estate built in one time period, namely between 1970 and 1999, generally considered to be established, but not old housing. What you'll sense when you look around or drive the streets of this neighborhood is that many of the residences look the same because of this similarity of age. In fact, 81.0% of the residential real estate here was built in this one time period.
Notable & Unique: Diversity

English and Cuban ancestry people living in it than nearly
