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: Real Estate
Do you like a coastal setting? If so, this neighborhood may be to your liking.
The Springs neighborhood is on the ocean, a bay, or inlet.
Often such coastal places have amenities and recreational activities on the waterfront
that are attractive to residents and visitors alike.
In addition, vacant homes and apartments are a significant characteristic of this neighborhood. In fact, with 46.5% of the residential real estate vacant, the Springs neighborhood claims the distinction of having a higher vacancy rate than 98.3% of the neighborhoods in America. This can either be because much of the property is seasonally occupied, like in many vacation areas, or that much of the real estate is more permanently abandoned.
Furthermore, this Springs neighborhood has earned the amazing distinction of having one of the highest rates of detached, single-family homes of any neighborhood in the U.S. With 96.5% of the residential real estate here made up of free-standing single-family homes, there is a greater proportion of single-family homes here than in 95.2% of all neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Diversity
Did you know that the Springs neighborhood has more
South American ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 24.6% of
this neighborhood's residents have South American ancestry.
Notable & Unique: Length of Commute
Regardless of the means by which residents commute, this neighborhood has
a length of commute that is notable.
Long commutes can be brutal. They take time, money, and energy, leaving less
of you for yourself and your family. The residents of the
Springs neighborhood unfortunately have the distinction of having,
on average, a longer commute than most any neighborhood in America.
10.3% of commuters here travel more than one hour just one-way
to work. That is more than two hours per day. This percentage with two-hour +
round-trip commutes is higher than NeighborhoodScout found in 97.6%
of all neighborhoods in America.

sex couples living together than 97.0% of neighborhoods
