Many things matter about a neighborhood, but the first thing most people notice
is the way a neighborhood looks and its particular character. For example, one
might notice whether the buildings all date from a certain time period or whether
shop signs are in multiple languages. This particular neighborhood in Sebring,
the Kuhlman neighborhood, has some outstanding things about the way it
looks and its way of life that are worth highlighting.
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
Did you know that the Kuhlman neighborhood has more
English and Cuban ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 14.4% of
this neighborhood's residents have English ancestry and 1.1% have Cuban ancestry.
Notable & Unique: Occupations
With 1.3% of employed workers living in the
Kuhlman neighborhood active in the military, this neighborhood has
the distinction of having a higher proportion of people in the military
than 95.2% of American neighborhoods. This is a major
shaper of the neighborhood's culture and character.
