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: Diversity
Did you know that the Roberts / Roscoe neighborhood has more
Finnish and Norwegian ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 3.6% of
this neighborhood's residents have Finnish ancestry and 6.3% have Norwegian ancestry.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
This neighborhood has wide open spaces, few people, and lots of space to stretch out. If you like locations that fit that description, you may like this neighborhood. Based on NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis, with only 2.93 people per square mile living here, this neighborhood is less crowded than 98.8% of America. One of the notable things about Roberts / Roscoe 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, despite all of the residential real estate here in the Roberts / Roscoe 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 53.7%, which is higher than 99.0% of all U.S. neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: Modes of Transportation
In the Roberts / Roscoe neighborhood, many people's commute means
walking from the bedroom to the home office. NeighborhoodScout's analysis
found that 12.9% of residents worked from home. This may not
seem like a large number, but Scout's research shows that this is a higher
percentage of people working from home than 97.1% of the
neighborhoods in America. Often people who work from home are engaged in
the creative or technological economy, such as is found in areas around Boston,
and in Silicon Valley. Other times, people may be engaged in other businesses
like trading stocks from home, or running a small beauty salon.
Notable & Unique: People
If you're nearing retirement age, or in retirement, the
Roberts / Roscoe neighborhood is an excellent choice for you to consider
for top-quality retirement living. This neighborhood is rated by
NeighborhoodScout as among the top 9.6% of retiree-friendly
neighborhoods in Montana, combining peace and quiet, safety from
crime, and offering diverse housing options from which retirees can
choose. Maybe it's because of these amenities that a large proportion
of the residents here are college educated seniors, mixed with other
age groups. For these and other reasons, NeighborhoodScout identifies
this neighborhood as a top-notch place to consider if you are thinking
of or planning to retire in Montana.
In addition to being an excellent choice for active retirees, this
neighborhood is also a very good choice for families with school-aged children.
