Skibo is a suburban neighborhood (based on population
density) located in Fayetteville, North Carolina.
Skibo real estate is primarily made up of medium sized (three or four bedroom) to small (studio to two bedroom) single-family homes and apartment complexes/high-rise apartments.
Most of the residential real estate is occupied by a mixture of owners and renters. Many of
the residences in the Skibo neighborhood are older, well-established, built between 1940 and 1969. A number of residences were also built between 2000 and the present.
Skibo has a 16.1% vacancy rate, which is
well above average compared to other U.S. neighborhoods (higher than
76.6% 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
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.

The Skibo neighborhood stands out nationally for having
a greater proportion of its residents active in the military than

speak Korean at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher
than 98.8% of the neighborhoods in America.
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.

is a lower rate of childhood poverty than is found in 85.9%

The Neighbors: Occupations
A neighborhood is far different if it is dominated by enlisted military personnel

your lifestyle and aspirations.

The Neighbors: Ethnicity / Ancestry
Boston's Beacon Hill blue-blood streets, Brooklyn's Orthodox Jewish enclaves,
Los Angeles' Persian neighborhoods. Each has its own culture derived primarily
from the ancestries and culture of the residents who call these neighborhoods
home. Likewise, each neighborhood in America has its own culture – some more
unique than others – based on lifestyle, occupations, the types of households
– and importantly – on the ethnicities and ancestries of the people who live
in the neighborhood. Understanding where people came from, who their grandparents
or great-grandparents were, can help you understand how a neighborhood is today.

with gasoline prices rising and expected to continue doing so, the length and

up so many walk to work, or can take a train, bus, or bike.
