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
Uncrowded roads, rural America and space to be the individual you are. If you like these characteristics, this neighborhood may fit you. With just 28.17 residents per square mile, Greenridge is less crowded than 93.2% of all U.S. neighborhoods. Greenridge is a neighborhood that is on the ocean, a bay, or inlet.
Many times, such places have amenities that bring locals and visitors to the
waterfront for recreational activities or to check out the scenery.
In some densely populated areas that are less financially well-off, the neighborhood
waterfront can be relatively industrial and less open to recreation.
In addition to being coastal, Greenridge is a very nautical neighborhood,
meaning that it is somewhat historic, walkable, densely populated and
on the water. This gives the neighborhood a very nautical feel,
with some seaside and shipping feel, which some may really enjoy the sights
and sounds of.
In addition, despite all of the residential real estate here in the Greenridge 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 36.3%, which is higher than 96.4% of all U.S. neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: Migration / Stability
Do you like to be surrounded by people from all over the country or world,
with different perspectives and life experiences? Or do you instead prefer
to be in a neighborhood where most residents have lived there for a long
time, creating a sense of cohesiveness? NeighborhoodScout's analysis
reveals that this neighborhood stands out among American neighborhoods
for the uniqueness of the mobility of its residents.
