Acree is a rural neighborhood (based on population
density) located in Albany, Georgia.
Acree real estate is primarily made up of medium sized (three or four bedroom) to small (studio to two bedroom) single-family homes and mobile homes.
Most of the residential real estate is owner occupied. Many of
the residences in the Acree neighborhood are established but not old, having been built between 1970 and 1999. A number of residences were also built between 1940 and 1969.
Acree has a 14.9% vacancy rate, which is
well above average compared to other U.S. neighborhoods (higher than
73.3% of American neighborhoods). This could either
signal that there is weak demand for real estate in the neighborhood,
or that much of the housing stock is seasonally occupied,
which can occur in some markets dominated by colleges or vacation homes.
Either way, if you live here year round, you will find many of the homes
or apartments are empty for all or a portion of the year.
Notable & Unique Neighborhood Characteristics
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 Albany,
the Acree neighborhood, has some outstanding things about the way it
looks and its way of life that are worth highlighting.

option for many. In fact, NeighborhoodScout's exclusive research reveals

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
Acree neighborhood stands apart from most American neighborhood due
to the proportion of its residents still working in these fields. With 6.0%
of the workforce so employed, this neighborhood has a greater concentration
of such workers than 97.3% of U.S. neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
In addition, most neighborhoods are composed of a mixture of ages of homes, but the Acree 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, 80.3% of the residential real estate here was built in this one time period.
The Neighbors: Income
There are two complimentary measures for understanding the income of a
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.

than 72.4% of U.S. neighborhoods.

line, this neighborhood has a higher rate of childhood poverty than 84.3%
of U.S. neighborhoods.
The Neighbors: Occupations
A neighborhood is far different if it is dominated by enlisted military personnel
rather than people who earn their living by farming. It is also different if

the shear diversity of neighborhoods, allowing you to find the type that fits
your lifestyle and aspirations.

(18.3%), and 16.6% in clerical, assistant, and tech support occupations.
The Neighbors: Ethnicity / Ancestry
Culture is shared learned behavior. We learn it from our parents, their parents,
our houses of worship, and much of our culture – our learned behavior - comes
from our ancestors. That is why ancestry and ethnicity can be so interesting
and important to understand: places with concentrations of people of one or
more ancestries often express those shared learned behaviors and this gives
each neighborhood its own culture. Even different neighborhoods in the same
city can have drastically different cultures.
