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 Red Lodge,
the Roberts / Roscoe neighborhood, has some outstanding things about the way it
looks and its way of life that are worth highlighting.
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
Unpopulated, and rural, the Roberts / Roscoe neighborhood is one of the least crowded neighborhoods in all of America. If you like open space, no traffic, and lots of room, this neighborhood may be just what you are looking for. According to NeighborhoodScout's leading research, this neighborhood is less densely populated than 98.8% of the neighborhoods in 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.
