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
Unpopulated, and rural, the Palmetto Bluff 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 94.0% of the neighborhoods in America. Palmetto Bluff 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, if you like the look and ambience of new homes and newly built neighborhoods, you will love the Palmetto Bluff neighborhood. A whopping 66.1% of the homes and other residential real estate here were built after 1999, which is a higher proportion of new homes then you will find in 98.2% of the neighborhoods in the U.S. Everything here just feels new.
Furthermore, owner-occupied real estate dominates the Palmetto Bluff neighborhood. In fact, according to NeighborhoodScout research, the percentage of residential real estate occupied by its owner is higher here than in 95.0% of neighborhoods in America. Vacant homes and apartments are a significant characteristic of this neighborhood. In fact, with 37.0% of the residential real estate vacant, the Palmetto Bluff neighborhood claims the distinction of having a higher vacancy rate than 96.7% 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.
Notable & Unique: Diversity
Did you know that the Palmetto Bluff neighborhood has more
English and Sub-Saharan African ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 22.2% of
this neighborhood's residents have English ancestry and 11.6% have Sub-Saharan African ancestry.
Palmetto Bluff is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 1.5% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak Russian at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher
than 95.5% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Modes of Transportation
More people in Palmetto Bluff choose to walk to work each day
(12.7%) than almost any neighborhood in America. If you are
attracted to the idea of being able to walk to work, this neighborhood
could be a good choice.
