Tierra Verde is a suburban neighborhood (based on population
density) located in St. Petersburg, Florida. This is a coastal neighborhood (i.e., is on the ocean, a bay, or inlet).
Tierra Verde real estate is primarily made up of medium sized (three or four bedroom) to small (studio to two bedroom) apartment complexes/high-rise apartments and single-family homes.
Most of the residential real estate is owner occupied. Many of
the residences in the Tierra Verde 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
Tierra Verde. The current real estate vacancy rate here is 26.4%.
This is higher than the rate of vacancies in 91.9% 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.

neighborhood's residents: the average and the extremes. While a neighborhood
may be relatively wealthy overall, it is equally important to understand
the rate of people - particularly children - who are living at or below the
federal poverty line, which is extremely low income. Some neighborhoods with
a lower average income may actually have a lower childhood poverty rate than
another with a higher average income, and this helps us understand the
conditions and character of a neighborhood.

to visit for the Italian restaurants, bakeries, culture, and charm, and similarly,
why people enjoy visiting Chinatown in San Francisco.
