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: Diversity
Did you know that the Germantown City Center neighborhood has more
British and Eastern European ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 1.9% of
this neighborhood's residents have British ancestry and 1.4% have Eastern European ancestry.
Germantown City Center is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 0.7% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak Gujarati, which is native to the Indian state of Gujarat, at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher
than 95.3% of the neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Modes of Transportation
While most Americans do drive to work alone each day, the Germantown
City Center neighborhood stands out by having 95.1% of commuters
doing so, which is a higher proportion of people driving alone to work
than NeighborhoodScout found in 98.1% of all American
Notable & Unique: People
If you come to know the people here, you will recognize that you're
in the company of one of the wealthiest communities in the nation. In
fact, a mere 3.6% of America's neighborhoods are wealthier than the
Germantown City Center neighborhood. Real estate here is exceedingly
well-maintained, and similarly, tends to maintain its value over time.
The cars driven are mostly luxury brands like Mercedes, Audi, BMW, and
Lexus. If the public schools aren't up to snuff, the residents of this
neighborhood preferentially send their children to private preparatory
schools. Vacation to Disney? Yes, but equally popular are summers in Europe.
In addition, if you're nearing retirement age, or in retirement, the Germantown
City Center neighborhood is an excellent choice for you to consider
for top-quality retirement living. This neighborhood is rated by
NeighborhoodScout as among the top 5.8% of retiree-friendly
neighborhoods in Tennessee, combining peace and quiet, safety from
crime, and offering diverse housing options from which retirees can
choose. Maybe it's because of these amenities that a large proportion
of the residents here are college educated seniors, mixed with other
age groups. For these and other reasons, NeighborhoodScout identifies
this neighborhood as a top-notch place to consider if you are thinking
of or planning to retire in Tennessee.
In addition to being an excellent choice for active retirees, this
neighborhood is also a very good choice for highly educated executives, families with school-aged children and urban sophisticates.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
In addition, one way that the Germantown City Center neighborhood really stands out, is that it has more large 4, 5, or additional bedroom homes and real estate than 99.6% of the neighborhoods in America. When you walk or drive around this neighborhood, you'll instantly notice the size of the homes here which definitely makes a strong visual statement.
Furthermore, this neighborhood has the distinction of having one of the lowest real estate vacancy rates of any neighborhood in America. With just 0.6% of the real estate vacant, this indicates an exceptionally strong demand for real estate in the Germantown City Center neighborhood, and/or an issue with creating enough supply for the demand. This could have the effect of increasing real estate prices, increasing supply to meet demand, or both.
Also of note, most neighborhoods are composed of a mixture of ages of homes, but the Germantown City Center stands out as rather unique in having nearly all of its residential real estate built in one time period, namely between 1970 and 1999, generally considered to be established, but not old housing. What you'll sense when you look around or drive the streets of this neighborhood is that many of the residences look the same because of this similarity of age. In fact, 83.7% of the residential real estate here was built in this one time period.
